The Nike Air Mag trainers with the automatic power laces worn by Marty McFly in ‘Back to the Future Part II’ could be a reality by 2015.

Sole Collector reports that during an appearance in New Orleans, Nike designer Tinker Hatfield said: “Are we gonna see power laces in 2015? To that, I say YES!"

['Back to the Future' musical planned]

They’re top of our Christmas list already.

Back in 2011, Nike auctioned off 1,500 pairs of imitation trainers for the Michael J. Fox Foundation that featured rechargeable LED lights and five-hour battery life. Crucially though, they couldn’t lace themselves up. Hopefully this will change next year.

Next up, hoverboards please!
