Back to the Future Part II Shoes: We want them now.

Nike MAG

It’s not April 1 yet, so just what is this story all about?

About five hours ago, producer Frank Marshall – who has produced Back to the Future, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Jurassic Park and just about every major film of the last three decades – ¬†cryptically Tweeted “Something big is coming soon. Can’t say anything yet. No one should know too much about their own destiny”.

The reference to Back to the Future did not go unnoticed by us geeks of the world. When he followed it up an hour later with “Going to need a lot of hover boards” and a link to this video called McFly’s Closet, posted on the¬†‘s YouTube channel, we got very excited.

It seems that Nike is planning a special Back to the Future themed launch tomorrow, possibly around something called the Nike MAG, the self-lacing shoes made famous in Back to the Future Part II. Stay tuned. This is heavy.
