Nike Confirmed: Power Laces Coming in 2015

ku-xlargeIn Back to the Future II there is a scene where Marty McFLy is slipping on a pair of shoes that are so 80’s that you could puke. The reason we care now, being that the movie was made in 1989 is that this scene took place in 2015. Which according to this note taped to my monitor is next year.

Being that we haven’t seen such awesome shoes yet the people at Sole Collector decided it was time to get on Nike’s case and ask about the power laces that these futuristic/retro shoes had. When questioned Tinker Hatfield, a representative from Nike had this to say, “Are we gonna see power laces in 2015? To that, I say YES!”

That’s good enough for me. So Now I’m excited to get through this crappy year of tying my own shoes and graduate to a self-lacing model. Granted they are Nikes so I’m going to have to start saving now, and then dip into my savings heavily next year, but it should be worth it right?
