As Nike prepares to release a new shoe to the scene, it is taking its inspiration from the big screen.

Nike officials announced they are making self-tying shoes, similar to the ones seen in “Back to the Future 2.”

Michael J. Fox’s character, Marty McFly, wore self-tying Nike Mags in the movie during the year 2015.

Nike’s real-life self-tying shoes are also slated to come out in 2015.

This isn’t the shoe company’s first attempt at the iconic kicks.

Back in 2011, Nike released limited edition Mags but those shoes didn’t have the smart lace-up technology.

It’s still unclear if Nike plans to keep the Mags name for the new sneakers.
