Hello, McFly

Footwear giant, Nike, is going back to the future. They’ve filed a patent for “automatic lacing sneakers” reminiscent of the kicks that Marty McFly wore in Back to the Future Part II.  The patent that was filed in 2009 states that the automatic lacing system would provide a set of straps that can be automatically opened and closed to switch between a loosened and tightened position with the press of a button near the heel. In the 1989 classic, McFly travels to the year 2015, so Nike isn’t too far off from making the movie a reality if the patent is approved.

The Reebok Pump is so 2000 and late. C’mon, Nike. Just do it.
