Nike to Bring Auto-lacing Footwear to the Masses

It’s time to go back to the future in style! Nike has filed a patent for auto-lacing sneakers that are rather reminiscent of the future shoes that Marty McFly wore in Back to the Future 2. Now is tying your shoes that much of a hassle? No, but why not put your geek on and press the auto-lacing feature in front of your friends?

Take a look at the patent below. Looks familiar doesn’t it?

Now, we just need a company to develop the hover board and some auto-fitting cloths, then we get another step closer to the Back to the Future universe.
