Want a pair of Marty McFlys?

The Back to the Future movie series featured many super cool things and while hoverboards may take some time Nike may just present us with sneakers that lace themselves by 2015.

Nike has filed for a patent for self-lacing shoes, complete with a charging station. Despite the fact that not every patent filed means we can expect to see the end product it would be great if Nike makes these shoes a reality.

Of course you'll be pleased to know that the patent for these shoes also details lights on the sides of the soles, as well as a light up Nike logo on the tongue of the shoe. If you're going to go for it, go hard!
