Nike unveiled the official Nike MAG from Back to the Future II with Power Laces just over two weeks ago. Initially fans expected the shoes from the movie to release on October 21, the date that Marty McFly goes back to the future in the film. Unfortunately Nike only announced the shoes on the day, but will only be releasing them in early 2016. The power lacing, for which Nike has a patent, is of course the most interesting feature of the sneakers. Well, the people selling knockoffs do not feel like waiting for Nike and have also figured out how to introduce power lacing in their fake Nike MAGs. First spotted by Instagram user fake_education, an account that generally pointing out ways to tell real shoes from their unauthorized twins, the power lacing looks very real. Just in case you are seeing a lot of Nike MAGs hitting eBay and other platforms early, you know where they are coming from. And it is not Nike.

Next year's Nike MAG will once again be sold through an auction process, resulting in extremely high prices. Would you buy a fake Nike MAG if you cannot afford the real one?
