If we can’t have the hoverboards, we’ll take the shoes. When Micheal J. Fox went Back to the Future–to, of all places, 2015–the hoverboards he rode stuck in the world’s imagination. But that wasn’t the only thing about 2015 that rocked. What about the shoes? As Mars Blackmon would say: It must be the shoes. And so it is, says Nike.
McFly’s boot-like space-ready silver shoes laces tighten up themselves. Fox presses a button and zoom–ready to go. “Power laces,” he says, “All right.” (See below.) Nike has been hinting at a McFly-inspired shoe for a while. The Nike Air MAG McFly is set to get the power laces this year.
