The fictional Nike Air Mag sneakers from Back to the Future Part II became a reality in 2011, when Nike auctioned off 1,500 pairs to benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation. The shoes featured a glowing LED panel, an electroluminescent Nike logo, and a battery that kept them lighted for five hours between charges. There was just one problem — they didn’t lace themselves automatically the way they did in the movie.

But that may be about to change. Sole Collector reports that during an appearance in New Orleans, Nike designer Tinker Hatfield suggested that Marty McFly’s dream shoes might be on their way after all. “Are we gonna see power laces in 2015?” he said, according to the publication. “To that, I say YES!” There’s no telling how serious Hatfield is, but he’s certainly given sneakerheads reason to hope. If only the outlook for flying cars were as bright.
