(CNN) - Nike is planning to make self-tying shoes - similar to the ones seen in the film Back to the Future 2.

The sneaker magazine, Sole Collector, reports Nike designer Tinker Hatfield confirmed the news during an appearance at Jordan Brand's Flight Lab in New Orleans last week.

Michael J. Fox's Back to the Future character, Marty McFly, wore self-tying Nike Mags in the movie during the year 2015.

Sole Collector reports Nike's real-life self-tying shoes are also slated to come out in 2015.

Back in 2011, Nike released limited edition Mags on eBay, but the shoes didn't have the lace-up technology.

It's unclear if Nike plans to keep the Mags name for the new sneakers.
