It had been quite a fun with all those "Back to the future Day" celebrations where we bragged to the people of the past that their dreams had become somewhat a reality. (For all those who doesn't understand, Oct 21, 2015 is the day to which Marty in "Back to the Future II" jumps from the past!)
But, Nike has indeed made it quite a day with the releasing of "Power-laced" Nike Mags. Before I go deep people, these aren't Rocket Booster shoes and so, don't get your hopes high!
These are actually Self-lacing shoes which uses an individually responsive system that senses the wearer’s motion to provide adaptive on-demand comfort and support. That means two things:
- You don't have to tie laces.
- You won't have anymore of those too-tight too-loose situations.
What's more, Nike says the "power laces" tech is only in its infancy, calling what these Mags feature a first iteration of it. The company added that it is currently testing this across a wide range of sports, as it wants and hopes to bring it to other footwear in the future -- at least in areas where it makes sense.
And the first one to wear the Nike Mags is Marty (Michael J. Fox) himself!
