In 2011 Nike produced Marty McFly’s fictional high top from Back To The Future II and was able to auction off 1500 pairs on eBay. All proceeds, nearly $6 million, went directly to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. However, something was lacking. Power laces!
They weren’t ready yet for this futuristic system at that time being but it seems that’s about to change. Nike designer Tinker Hatfield recently stated the power laces might be happening soon.
Are we gonna see power laces in 2015? To that, I say YES!
Now we’ll just wait and see if it’ll actually happen.
