As we reported earlier, today, October 21, 2015 — Back to the Future Day, as it’s being called — will likely end without you getting your hands on a pair of auto-lacing Nike Mag shoes. They are coming, just not until 2016. Unless you’re Michael J. Fox.
The man who portrayed Marty McFly in all three Back to the Future films, giving the Nike Mag its silver screen debut in the second installment, Fox received the very first pair of power-lacing Nike Mags today. Thankfully, the Michael J. Fox Foundation promptly took to the internet to document the moment, as Michael slipped the shoes on, pressed the requisite buttons and magic happened.
Check out the historic moment below, and stay tuned for developments regarding the Nike Mag release that’s now apparently set for 2016. And tune into Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight, when none other than Michael J. Fox will be the guest. I have a feeling his footwear might be kind of cool. . . .
