Where you're going, you don't need laces.

The Nike Mags made famous in "Back to the Future Part II" are now a reality, and the sneaker company is raffling off just under 100 pairs of the power-lacing sneakers for charity.

Attuned to the enduring appeal of the shoes, Nike has teamed up with the Michael J. Fox Foundation to help fund research into Parkinson's Disease. Fox, who played Marty McFly in the "Back to the Future" movies, was diagnosed with Parkinson's in his late 20s.

The foundation has provided more than $600 million in funding for promising projects since it was established in 2000. Eighty-nine cents out of every dollar raised goes directly to research, according to a representative.

Marty McFly wannabes can buy as many raffle tickets as they like for $10 each through Nike's app.

Fox showed off an exclusive pair he received from Nike in 2015, which was the prototype for the model Nike is raffling off now. The raffle will end on October 11. Winners will be notified on October 17.

If you're one of the many who will end up with a losing raffle ticket, you can still grab a pair of self-lacing shoes when Nike's HyperAdapt 1.0 sneakers hit the market on November 28.

The athletic apparel giant auctioned off a pair of Air Mags -- without the self-lacing features -- in 2011 for the same cause and raised $4.7 million for Parkinson's research.
