The Self Lacing Nike MAG has officially been unveiled by the brand and won’t release until Spring 2016 via auction. Many of us expected this, however there was still hope with today being Back to The Future Day.
The pair that Michael J. Fox received is known as the 2015 Nike Mag which through a string of social media updates finally posted a video showcasing how they work.
According to Nike, the Nike Mag 2016 ‘Power Laces’ actually senses the motion and adapts according to comfort and support. On a side-note, it seems that Nike is testing the power lacing system on other shoes across different sports which we could see in the near future.
Although Nike is calling them the 2015 Nike Mag, the shoes won’t actually release until Fall 2016. Furthermore, this won’t be your typical launch. You won’t be able to purchase them on NikeStore.com but buy tickets to enter a raffle. Proceeds will go to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. See below for more images and check back with us for additional details.
