Power Laces Coming In 2015? Could Be….
By Clarke Wolfe on February 16, 2014
Nike designer Tinker Hatfield confirmed that power laces are on their way for 2015. While appearing at Jordan Brand’s Flight Lab in New Orleans, Hatfield was quoted as saying, “Are we gonna see power laces in 2015? To that, I say YES!” We don’t know when in 2015, where or how, but we know they’re coming. Who’s excited?!
Back in 2011, Nike produced 1,500 pairs of the Nike Air Mag just like Marty’s Back to the Future II high top sneakers. The shoes were released with little forewarning and were auctioned off on eBay with proceeds going to The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, raising almost $6 million for the charity. The one downside to the shoes at that time: no power laces. Apparently the technology wasn’t ready yet, but, really, that makes perfect sense, because everyone knew that technology wouldn’t exist until 2015….
Next year will be a big year for the beloved time travel franchise, as 2015 sees the 30th anniversary of the first Back to the Future film. As Nerdist reported a few weeks ago, a stage musical adaptation is slated to premiere in London’s West End to commemorate the initial release.
