The future is here, y’all!

On Wednesday — “Back to the Future” day — actor Michael J. Fox tested a pair of self-lacing Nikes, just like he did in “Back to the Future 2.” He tweeted a short video that shows the shoe laces tightening.

“That’s insane,” Fox says. “That’s really great.”


Fox also tweeted that the shoes are coming spring 2016.

In case you don’t remember them, here are the “power laces” in movie action.

And we have a good guess as to who will among the first to get a pair: Royals’ pitcher Jeremy Guthrie, who has been all over social media about how “Future I & II” are his favorites movies “ever.”
