In the 1989 hit, Back to the Future II, Marty McFly had predicted he would have his own self-tying Nike shoes. And Nike it seems is nothing if not obliging.

Revealing the much-awaited Nike Mags Auto Lace through Michael J Fox on Back to the Future Day, is nothing, if not genius.

October 21st, 2015, the Marty predicted his would have his own self-lacing shoes, was the day the world was introduced to the neon-lit pair that's got the world drooling on the sides.

But those too lazy to tie their own shoes need not feel excited yet. The special edition Nike Air Auto Lace will not be available in stores. The sneakers will be auctioned and the proceedings will go to a Parkinson's research centre.

Designed by Tinker Hatfield, a video of the now 54 year-old actor trying on the shoes for the first time has gone viral.


The actor also came on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and the mixed look of joy-shock-greed on Jimmy's face is basically how everybody in the world feels right now.
