Back to the Future: Nike designer announces power laces for 2015

PORTLAND, Ore – In the movie Back to the Future II, Marty McFly travels forward in time to the imagined year 2015 where he dons a pair of Nike’s with power laces.

Now famed Nike design man Tinker Hatfield has promised power laces are indeed coming and they will be here in the real year 2015.

While at the Jordan Brand’s Flight Lab in New Orleans Monday, Hatfield confirmed the news to Sole Collector.

"Are we gonna see power laces in 2015? To that, I say YES!" said Hatfield.

In 2011 the athletic company auctioned off 1,500 pairs of the fictional high-tops McFly wore in the movie with proceeds benefiting the Michael J. Fox foundation for Parkinson’s Research.  The only thing missing from those shoes, dubbed Nike MAG, were power laces.

The question remains whether the power laces Hatfield promised will debut on the Nike MAG or on another shoe.
