Nike working on self-tying Back To The Future II shoes, because it’d be stupid not to


Nike is working on bringing Marty McFly’s famous footwear to life, according to reports.


2015 is the year that Marty and Doc Brown travel to in the 1989 sequel – so expect to see a lot of BTTF stuff this year. Nike has also clearly identified a superb commercial opportunity. In the film – which predicts hover-boards and not selfie sticks – Marty is seen trying some “Nike MAGs” trainers which have self-tying shoe laces.

According to The Telegraph, Nike should actually have replica shoes on the shelves by the end of the year.

They may not just look the part too – as Nike has patented technologies that could be used to make self-tying laces, as seen in the film.

Hopefully soon Delorean will announce it has invented a time travelling car soon too.
