Back in 2011, Nike revealed a limited run of Back to the Future Part II-inspired sneakers. The edition, set at 1500 pairs, replicated the future 2015 Nike MAGs worn by Michael J. Fox’s Marty McFly in the 1989 film, although lacked the movie’s “power laces” function. The whole lot went directly on eBay as part of a charity effort on the part of the Michael J. Fox Foundation. Today, Nike designer Tinker Hatfield has revealed to Sole Collector (via Gizmodo) that the company is getting ready to take another look at Marty’s shoes and will release functioning power laces next year!
“Are we gonna see power laces in 2015?” were Hatfield’s exact words. “To that, I say YES!”
Of course there’s no word yet or how limited a production run Nike might target this time around nor is there any confirmation that the laces will appear on another replica of those specific shoes. That being said, Back to the Future fans may very soon have a chance to own the pair of shoes they’ve been dreaming about for 25 years.
