Back To The Future Powerlaces Coming Next Year

February 17, 2014


According to a Nike designer, back to the future style powerlaces are coming out next year, THE SAME YEAR MARTY HAS THEM IN THE MOVIE. Just don't get your hopes up for a hoverboard because that shit ain't happening. Sole Collector tells it, designer Tinker Hatfield showed up at the Jordan Brand's Flight Lab space in New Orleans yesterday. When asked about power laces, his answer was pretty unequivocal:

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

As cool as power laces sound, they seem a little unnecessary. I mean, it's not that hard to tie your shoes. I learned that in like, sixth grade. See? "You're wearing flip flops." You're damn right I am. Plus, if your power laces break, can you still tie your shoes, or are they trash? I don't like the idea of a shoe with extra components that can fail. Can you tell I'm just talking them down because I know I won't be able to afford them? That's exactly what's happening here.

Thanks to z4xx0r and PYY, who already feel sorry for the kids in the shoe factories that are gonna lose fingers to powerlaces.

    Do they have a sandal version?!

    Far out!

    I disagree. For those such as myself with co-ordination and motor issues this could save minutes. It isn't unnecessary it's just less necessary than people would think it is!

  • Adam Blanshard

    Fantastic hand acting there by Mr Fox

  • LittleBigFace

    Shame he can't do it anymore... because of Parkinson.

    We would like to take a moment of silence to remember all of the kids that were electrocuted the first time they walked through a rainstorm during the Nike tragedy of 2015. We would also like to remember those of you that had to have your feet amputated due to the malfunctioning power laces. Now, please raise your hover boards in salute.

    or the kids who were garrotted by their football boots walking back from training...

  • George Clooney

    ORRRRR how about these 'power laces' having no power; perhaps they are simply STYLED the same, and you tie them up regularly!

  • Myopinionsofuckoff

    Those came a minute ago homie!

  • G-man

    I saw the hoverboard last year.....

  • for all the fatties

  • TyDurd

    Since the classic high-top style is coming back it kind of seems like destiny. Love 'em or hate 'em.


    Sure it's unnecessary, but it's not about practicality, it's about fulfilling the prophecy.

  • The Magnificent Newtboy

    As long as they are released along with the self drying coat I'll be dead happy! I bet they feel really nice and snug too.

    besides we'll need these in the idiocracy future when people would be dependent on the things
