Marty McFly's self-lacing sneaks will soon be thing of the present, along with advances in Nike shoe technology

Fans of the timeless Back to the Future trilogy may soon have reason to rejoice.

In the next year, the creator of the iconic BTTF 2 Nikes plans to unveil a real-life version of the film's “power laces,” and may do so amid a variety of other high-tech advances in shoe-making.

As Nice Kicks reported, designer Tinker Hatfield recently confirmed to an Agenda Trade Show audience in Long Beach, CA that “his team is working as hard as possible to deliver the Nike MAG in 2015 with Power Laces.” Hatfield pointed out to audiences that there were still “11 and two-thirds months left in 2015” at the time of his announcement, making shoe fans aware that they'll have to wait just a little longer for the fully equipped version of Nike MAGs.
