Will the world of 2015 be like that envisioned in Back to the Future II? Well, we might not be drinking quite as much Pepsi, but we could very well be wearing the same shoes if this patent application is anything to go by. Filed by a Mr T. Hatfield amongst others, it looks like the self-lacing Air Mag* may just see the light of day. From what we see here it would be quite an elaborate rig, with a recharge crib to help these puppies power up (and you thought carrying your cell phone charger was a pain in the you-know-what!) For the egg-heads out there you can ponder over the blueprints below. Thanks to Dime and Nice Kicks for the news.
