Any fan of Back to the Future will recognize the iconic Nike sneakers worn by Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) in the second installment of the trilogy of time travelling adventures. The good news is that Nike have announced they are putting these icons of modern film into production.
According to Nice Kicks, Nike’s innovation chief Tinker Hatfield – who was speaking at Californian trade show #AgendaEmerge – said that his team was working to deliver the Nike MAG with Power Laces in 2015. However, there are “11 and two-thirds months left in 2015″. So, presumably, they’re looking at an end-of-year release maybe?
“The anticipation for this release is something that few understand, I don’t even know if everyone at Nike realizes just how much demand there is for this shoe.”
It hasn’t been confirmed yet as to whether or not the laces will be powered like they are in the film, Nike originally filed the patent for the Power Lace Technology back in 2011 so here’s hoping they have managed to perfect the tech since then. I can imagine that if they were powered, they would be worth a bob or two so get saving! Now, where do I pre-order??
