Nike Designer Says Marty McFly's Power Laces Are Coming Next Year

If there was one disappointment about Nike's awesome Back to the Future II Air Mag, it's that the shoes didn't have Marty's power laces (and that they only made 1,500 and neither you nor I own a pair). But Nike designer Tinker Hatfield says that's about to change—power laces are coming in 2015. The future is here!

Yes, as Sole Collector tells it, designer Tinker Hatfield showed up at the Jordan Brand's Flight Lab space in New Orleans yesterday. When asked about power laces, his answer was pretty unequivocal:

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

Sole Collector points out that Hatfield didn't specify whether power laces will show up on the Nike Mag, or some other product, but who cares? POWER LACES PEOPLE. And there's some meaningful chronology here: Marty's self-lacing sneaks, you'll recall were from the year 2015.

Was Nike holding out, making sure they didn't create a time paradox that would unravel the very fabric of the space-time continuum and destroy the entire universe? If so, smart move. 2015 is gonna be awesome. [Sole Collector]
