Nike Air Force 1 Low Draws Inspiration from Marty McFly’s Iconic Mags
The legendary Mags worn by Marty McFly in the 1989 film “Back To The Future II” have solidified their place as one of the most iconic shoe designs in history, owing much of their fame to their groundbreaking self-lacing feature. Now, 12 years after Nike turned that futuristic concept into reality, the illuminated high tops serve as inspiration for a harmonizing creation: the Nike Air Force 1 Low in a colorway that mirrors the Mags.
Taking cues from the original design, the Nike Air Force 1 Low, conceptualized by Bruce Kilgore, offers a seamless connection to the coveted self-lacing model, with the exception of traditional laces. The shoe’s smooth leather and durable ripstop upper are enveloped in a solid shade of sophisticated grey. To echo the essence of the Michael J. Fox-endorsed Mags, crisp white Swoosh logos on the sides and heel tabs emulate the appearance of the straps and heel structure from the late 80s original.
While this tribute forgoes the speckled midsole seen on the Mags, it embraces a clean and neutral backdrop. A vibrant blue Nike logo, reminiscent of Doc Brown’s futuristic gadget, is embedded within the insoles. Additionally, the emblematic Nike Air branding is featured on the tongue tab and the heel, paying homage to the unforgettable design.
While we eagerly await more information about the release, indulge in the official images of the Nike Air Force 1 Low “Mag Back To The Future” below, capturing the spirit of innovation and nostalgia in a single silhouette.
