It’s 2015 now, which means that we should all get ready for a deluge of stories involving the vision of the future presented in Back to the Future Part II, which takes place in 2015. The purveyors of these stories is a group that includes famous Nike designer Tinker Hatfield, who recently made the statement that the movie’s iconic Nike Air Mags with “Power Laces” are still being developed.
Hatfield even goes so far as to say that the automatic-lacing Nike Air Mags will be released later this year, although details beyond that announcement are understandably fuzzy. The important thing is that Nike’s chief auteur says we’re going to have Power Laces in 2015, just like Back to the Future promised us. Power Laces … Hoverboards … Maybe a dozen or so Jaws sequels are next?
