The Nike Mag Self-Lacing Sneakers Are Finally Here, but They're Only Making 89 Pairs

Enter to win, and benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation


The Nike Mag self-lacing sneakers from Back to the Future II are finally a reality—27 years after the movie, five years after Nike built a Mag prototype, and seven months after it announced a different self-lacing shoe altogether.

The sneaker maker announced the release of the 2016 Nike Mag on Tuesday morning. It will be made available in an extremely limited edition: Only 89 pairs will be made (the significance of the number wasn’t made clear, though Back to the Future II came out in 1989), and they will be handed out in an online raffle—tickets for which cost $10 and will benefit the Michael J.
