Nike designer Tinker Hatfield announced that the company will release a real-life version of the Back To The Future II power laces that every fan of the trilogy has always dreamed of. During the NBA All Star weekend festivities, Hatfield made an appearance at the Jordan Brand Flight Lab, and said: “Are we gonna see power laces in 2015? To that, I say YES!”.
Inquisitr UK says, “Sneaker heads will surely be excited about the opportunity to own a pair of shoes featuring the laces that Marty McFly was rocking. Back in 2011, Nike released a design of the shoe from the 1989 sequel to the time traveling fan favorite. Called the Nike Air MAG, only 1,500 pairs of shoes were designed to be auctioned off on ebay.
All proceeds from the auction went to support the Michael J. Fox Foundation For Parkinson’s Research. The shoes garnered six million dollars in proceeds to help the charity.”
