Nike Air Mag To Release in 2015?

August 25, 2010 | 64

The shoe that many have been waiting for Nike to release just might be in the works as we speak. Marty McFly made the Air Mag famous in Back to the Future II. Since then people have always wondered if Nike would ever release the futuristic Air Mag sneaker with the automatic lacing system. Well, according to the World Intellectual Property Organization’s website, Tinker Hatfield and the Nike crew filed a patent for the automatic lacing system. Peep the abstract:

AUTOMATIC LACING SYSTEM
Abstract: An article of footwear with an automatic lacing system is disclosed. The automatic lacing system provides a set of straps that can be automatically opened and closed to switch between a loosened and tightened position of the upper. The article further includes an automatic ankle cinching system that is configured to automatically adjust an ankle portion of the upper.

Is it possible that Nike will release the Air Mag in 2015? If they are staying true to the theme of the movie, the Air Mag should see a release in 2015. If Nike decides to release the Air Mag there’s no telling how much the shoes will retail for.

However, a shoe with an automatic lacing system will definitely change the game in the footwear industry. Will you cop a pair of the Air Mags if they drop? 2015 release? Only time will tell. Spotted at Nicekicks via DimeMag.

We will keep you updated, so stay tuned!

    I don’t think these would retail for more than what the Yeezy’s went for. I would have to cop out of pure vanity lol. childish, immature, ugly, whatever. I would have to cop lol.

    I’m not too hyped about these, these are CrAZyShoez.. besides that Auto lace is gonna be tough to produce efficiently by 2015… and by 2015 I wonder if we can even expect these to be expensive. Everybody on here just might be able to afford these w/ ease by then, jus sayin…

    Most of us grew up dreaming of these shoes…they’ve been in the back of ur mind for a while now…If these dropped it’d be MAYHEM…Quite possibly the biggest/craziest release in the last…EVER! Make coppin space jams on Dec 23rd ’09 look like coppin’ white on white Air Force Ones…Just look at the Marty McFly Hyperdunk’s…they go for stupid money and that’s just the colorway inspiration…the whole shoe? Fuhgeddabout.

    And CK…stop FRONT-ING we know that Smart Car you’ve got flys!!!

    this release would create a crazy buzz. The camp out woulb b crazy and a must, bcause the shoe would most likely b limited.

    Im on board, take me back to the days when Michael J Fox was the Man on these streets. Black or white everybody thought McFly was cool.

    i swear they better have the sound and light up and everything, and they better drop them in other color ways… i need those in red and white like the hypermax

    For any sneakerhead, fan of film memerobilia, science-fiction nerd, and Back to the Future fan (I guess that makes me four out of four), these are pretty much a must-have no-brainer. They will have people in lines around the block like the release of the hyperdunks and will be stupid costly like everyone else has already said. Its defnitely worth it to have at least one pair just to say you were alive and well when this new trend and new mark in sneaker history was made. But to be fair, they should give a cut of the money to research centers to cure Parkinson’s disease in honor of Michael J. Fox, that would be even doper.

    Lights and noise are a must as well. They also should a “click” or setting component that allows you to preset the lacing so you wont injure yourself or have to adjust everytime you remove and wear the shoe.
