Nike to unveil Marty McFly Back to the Future II power laces
I don’t know about you, but “Back to the Future II” was my favorite movie in the series. Was anything better than when Marty McFly and Doc Brown go to the future and Marty goes to Cafe 80s? I think not. And was anything better than all the gizmos from the future? Not a chance.
Those hoverboards were as sick as can be. And nothing topped Marty’s shoes and outfit.
Nike already released the Back to the Future II Air Mag shoes (eccentric closer Brian Wilson was a huge fan), but those lacked the power laces that took the sneakers to the next level. Now it sounds like Nike will be introducing the power laces before long.
During an appearance at the Jordan Brand’s Flight Lab space in New Orleans earlier today, designer Tinker Hatfield was asked about the possibility of seeing power lacing next year, and his answer may surprise you.
“Are we gonna see power laces in 2015? To that, I say YES!” said Hatfield.
Heck yes. Game on. There aren’t a whole lot of “wants” I have in life, but this definitely goes to the top of the list. Let’s just hope they don’t cost four figures the way the shoes did.
