Marty McFly's "power laces" coming in 2015
Fans of Back to the Future II will be pleased to know that Marty McFly's iconic "power laces" will be arriving in 2015 – the same year in which the classic 1980s time travelling movie is set.
Back in 2011, Nike produced a limited edition shoe known as the Nike Mag, which they claimed to be an exact replica. However, although featuring an electro-luminescent out-sole, space age materials and a rechargeable internal battery, these failed to include their most memorable feature: the self-lacing ability seen in the film.
Now, it seems they will be included after all, with a relaunch of the famous shoe next year. Nike designer, Tinker Hatfield, confirmed this during his appearance at the Jordan Brand's Flight Lab: "Are we gonna see Power Laces in 2015?", he said. "To that, I say yes!"
