Back to the future shoes

Remember the McFly 2015s, the Official Shoes of Gadget Lab? They were a fairly faithful rendition of Marty McFly’s amazing self-lacing sneakers from Back to the Future 2, forced to the market by the tireless work of the Maloof brothers who spent years badgering Nike into making them.

Nike has patented a self-lacing sneaker and the shoes could actually be in stores in the year 2015, just like in the movie.

This would be a weird, time-warping paradox so perfectly mimicking those in the Back to the Future movies that the world might possibly end.

The shoes will of course fasten themselves, but there are also LEDs a-glowing and a detailed breakdown of the batteries, circuits and control-systems. There is even a charging stand.
