    Nike revealed self-lacing shoes on Wednesday, just like the ones Michael J. Fox’s “Back to the Future” character McFly encountered when he traveled to Oct. 21, 2015.

    The company also decided that the first wearer of the shoe should be the actor, who tweeted about the shoes.

    “We started creating something for fiction and we turned it into fact, inventing a new technology that will benefit all athletes,” the company said in a release.

    The shoe, the 2015 Nike Mag, is a limited edition release that will only be available via auction, the company said. All proceeds from the shoes will go to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research.

    "We started creating something for fiction and we turned it into fact, inventing a new technology that will benefit all athletes," said Nike President and CEO Mark Parker in a statement.
