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

The Nike Air Mag—AKA the Back to the Future Shoes—Are Real, and They're Glorious

 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 was 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]
