For a while now, there have been rumblings throughout the underground about the potential for a Nike Air Mag release with the mythical power lacing system. Well, at this year's Agenda Trade Show, none other than the designer of the shoe himself, Tinker Hatfield, confirmed the rumors.

When pressed on the topic, Hatfield said that his team is working as hard as possible to get the Nike Mag with Power Laces out in 2015, but didn't give a release date. This is huge news for those of you who missed out on the first round of the shoe. Unfortunately, this time they will be far more sought after. If you're still skeptical about the release, check out the patent papers below that give a rough sketch of the shoe's change in design.

One thing to note however is the removal of the word Air in the name of the shoe. The automatic lacing system will take up the space that was once occupied by the air-cushioning unit, which immediately brings the question of comfort to mind. Don't worry though; we're sure that Hatfield knows what he's doing. He designed the kicks for Marty McFly to wear in 'Back to the Future II,' after all.
