Nike is set to make a reality out of 'Back to the Future's' famous self-tying trainers

Back in 2011, Nike released a replica of the iconic footwear worn by Michael J. Fox's character Marty McFly in the 1989 film - Back to the Future II - that featured 'power laces' which tied themselves at the push of a button.

The replica of the shoes Nike created were called Nike Air Mag and featured a glowing LED panel, an illuminating Nike logo, and a battery power of 5 hours between charges, the only missing element was that the laces did not do themselves up automatically.
