Marty McFly's Power Laced Sneakers (BACK TO THE FUTURE II) To Be Released In 2015

Marty McFly's Power Laced Sneakers (BACK TO THE FUTURE II) To Be Released In 2015

Shut up and take my money! On Friday, a shoe designer for Nike, revealed that his sneaker-company will be producing sneakers with the power-lacing features as seen in Back To The Future II.

ku xlarge Nike Designer Confirms Marty McFlys Power Laces Are Coming In 2015

This is heavy, Doc! Hey, remember those Nike sneakers Michael J. Fox's character Marty McFly wore that automatically laced-up in the 1989 sequel Back to the Future Part II? Of course you do. I now have good news. The wait is finally over. Yesterday at the Jordan Brand's Flight Lab space in New Orleans, Nike designer Tinker Hatfield was asked about the chances of Nike producing a power-lacing sneaker soon.

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

There you have it, we'll finally have the opportunity to wear the sneakers that we could only dream of. We did get our hopes up several years ago, when in 2011 Nike MAG were produced which were replicas of Marty McFly's futuristic sneakers but they did not feature the ability to auto-lace. Also, those shoes were only available in limited supply. If you wanted to get your hands on one of those 1500 pairs you had to bid on them on EBay. It was all for a good cause, though. Proceeds from that auction went to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research.

So, when in 2015 can we expect Nike to release them? Perhaps the film holds the key. When Doc brings Marty and Jennifer into the future they arrive on October 21, 2015. Perhaps Nike will release them in October. We shall see.

Best news ever!

That auction thing was great, I'm sure no one would want to live with that disease or any disease for that matter. I myself am dealing with one, won't say which one, but shit becomes aggravating to deal with sometimes... rrrrrrr

Why was my comment deleted? Just curious. Was not offensive, just trying to be funny.

they released these like 3 years ago. All the celebs were buying them. Obviously they didnt have the power lace tech from the movie but you get the idea lol
DefcoN - 2/15/2014, 5:09 PM
I remember when a couple of years ago in my country, people went nuts when Mr. Lloyd came to film a commercial as the iconic Dr. Brown.

MightyZeus - 2/15/2014, 5:14 PM
Damn give me those sneakers and that hoverboard.

If they have the power laces, I'm buying.
Biff - 2/15/2014, 5:18 PM
This is old news. When they released these (without power laces) a few years ago they said they would do another version with the power laces by 2015 and sell them the same way. Which means more money than what people paid the last time. At least the money was going to a good cause....
TheGambitFreak - 2/15/2014, 5:19 PM
No big deal, lol.

Am I the only one that wants an open world BTTF game that allows you to teleport to different time periods and seasons/time?
theKamizeus - 2/15/2014, 5:21 PM
Does it come in with a hoverboard and self-drying jacket?
CaptainAmerica31 - 2/15/2014, 5:22 PM

LuBeTHiGhWalK3R - 2/15/2014, 5:22 PM

@batz That was berry punny.

Releasing these shoes publicly is a HORRIBLE idea. People are dying over Jordan's already, imagine how worse it'll get when these babies release. smh I would love to have them and especially seeing the features they can do would be a pretty epic addition as well but honestly I think it's best for them to remain classics, a hidden treasure if you will.

Tinker Hatfield is actually neighbors with a good friend of mine from work. I see him at his holiday parties. Pretty chill guy.
MarvelWeiner - 2/15/2014, 6:25 PM
My first comment was informative and I get ignored? y'all a bunch of bitches lol.

@MarvelWeiner If you're looking for a date here forget it. Try Facebook.
OdinsMissingEye - 2/15/2014, 8:15 PM
Along with the power laces a few more things that need to be released in 2015 in order for us to really be in the future are:

Auto-adjusting and auto drying jackets
Dehydrated pizza
Adjustable baseball bats
Automatic dog walkers
Flying cars
And computer games that don't require the use of hands
TheVirgin - 2/15/2014, 10:00 PM
I have those Marty McFly's shoes in my shop. Like 10 of them now.
mgeoff88 - 2/15/2014, 10:44 PM
That's awesome! Now we need the hoverboard to go with the shoes:

@MarvelWeiner Damn, that really sucks, man. You don't have to say the disease, but I know living with any disease is always hard. Keep your head up.

@TheGambitFreak I think it would be very difficult to program traveling back to different time periods whenever you want. I would play the shit out of a free-roaming BTTF game though.
Johnnyrocket - 2/15/2014, 10:48 PM
I'm getting a pair. no question about that.
IUsedToBeThecase - 2/15/2014, 10:58 PM
Really?? @starLord, Really??
They auctioned 1500 in 2011 and you got ten?

i call bullshit
