Marty McFly power laces for my Nike shoes? Yes, please. According to designer Tinker Hatfield, Nike will release the use of the fictional Back To The Future II laces that every fan of the trilogy has always dreamed of. As part of the NBA All Star weekend festivities, Hatfield made an appearance at the Jordan Brand Flight Lab. He was asked about the chances of power laces coming next year. His answer:

"Are we gonna see power laces in 2015? To that, I say YES!"

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.

Hatfield did not go into detail about how the power laces will be utilized, but with the advancement of technology, it can be done.

The Nike Air MAG was one of the most coveted shoes in all of shoe history. Very few are able to say they own a pair of the famous Marty McFly inspired release. Twitter was ecstatic about the news.
