Great news everyone, the infamous kicks that gave Marty Mcfly cred in Back To The Future II will be available to purchase this year, according to Nike’s Tinker Hatfield.
A sign of respect dealt to the dedicated fans of the trilogy that was, the Nike Air MAG (complete with self-lacing ‘power laces’) will be released in 2015, the same year that Mcfly and Doc traveled to in Back To The Future II, a relatively 80’s-inspired tech utopia in which hoverboards are the norm, food hydrators make pizzas enormous, and self-lacing sneakers are the fashion accessory du jour.
Hints about the release have been dropping for a cruel 4 years – which surely no glorified fan merch should warrant, but hey, power laces – with the initial announcement being made back in 2011. This time, the announcement was made with a similar lack of details on the when and the how much, but we’d hazard a guess that the release may well land on Back to The Future Day, aka October 21, 2015.
Can’t wait for this.
