L-SHAPED FUTURISTIC SHOES
What’s an L-Shaped Futuristic Shoes? I can still remember when I was little, me and my family use to watch a movie called Back To The Future II. When I first saw the shoes where Marty McFly’s wore in the movie, the first thing come in my mind is I hope in the future I can invent exactly the same shoes from the movie.
But I never really thought 22 years later the shoes became a reality. About four years early, Nike announced the Nike Air Mag, Marty McFly’s self-lacing shoes from 2015, as seen in Back To The Future Part II (1989). Nike has already patented a self-lacing system. It’s created a limited-edition shoe based on a glowing pair that appeared in the popular 1989 movie "Back to the Future II." The 2011 Nike Mag is designed to be an exact replica of the fictional sneaker, including a glowing Nike name on the strap. But unlike the movie version, these shoes won 't lace themselves.
