Marty McFly’s Air Mags are pretty much some of the coolest sneakers in film history. They look stylish and have more bells and whistles than most footwear. Of course, the most awesome extra feature of the Back to the Future shoes was the power laces. And guess what? Nike designer Tinker Hatfield says they’re happening in 2015 (the same year as the shoes in the movie). For real.
Hatfield was asked about the power laces during an appearance at the Jordan Brand’s Flight Lab. Sole Collector reports:
“Are we gonna see power laces in 2015? To that, I say YES!” said Hatfield.
Yes, it is amazing news. Hatfield didn’t state which specific kind of shoe the power laces will appear on, but come on – it’s power laces.
