Nike Basketball‘s high-tech Adapt BB 2.0 is set to release in an alternate “MAG” colorway dubbed the “Black MAG.” Once a mere fantasy of sneaker lovers and Hollywood movie producers alike, power lacing has not only become a reality in the past few years; it’s become somewhat commonplace, with Nike introducing both lifestyle and performance silhouettes equipped with the self-securing tech. The Adapt BB 2.0 is among the most advanced of these offerings, and this “Black MAG” colorway is an alternate nod to Michael J. Fox‘s beloved Nike MAG from 1985’s Back to the Future II.

Following in the footsteps of a proper “MAG” colorway that debuted earlier in August, the “Black MAG” — which, despite its name, The Cool Kids were not involved in making — swaps out the OG MAG’s standard wolf gray base hues for a stark black tone. Signature Jackson Pollock-esque blue splatters return on both the forefoot and shaped heel tab, however, and stand out even more brightly than before thanks to the stark base they sit atop.

A synthetic, textured sheath with a white Swoosh ensconces the forefoot and provides the basis for the fit system: it’s tightened or loosened by two small winch-like mechanisms. These mechanisms are powered by a small rechargeable motor in the midsole, itself denoted by a large plastic piece with two circular lights. Both the lace system and the color these lights display is controlled through an app on the wearer’s iPhone or Android device, and the motor is powered by an included charging board. Finally, the look is completed by multi-color detailing on the lateral forefoot and an icy blue outsole with a forefoot Zoom Air unit, identified by colorful rings.

The Nike Adapt BB 2.0 “Black MAG” will release via Nike SNKRS Japan on September 2, and is priced at ¥38,500 JPY (approximately $364 USD).
