Nike designer Tinker Hatfield has confirmed that the firm will be launching Marty McFly's Nike MAG trainers at some stage this year.

Nice Kicks reports that Hatfield, while talking at the Agenda Emerge show in California, stated that his team is working to release the Nike MAG in 2015, as Back to the Future: Part II dictates.

The sneakers will even boast the 'self lacing' aspect as seen in the film, thanks to Nike's recently patented 'power laces' technology.
