You’ve seen Back to the Future Part II, right? Remember the scene where Marty McFly is given that awesome future outfit; complete with auto-drying jacket, lenticular cap and, of course, Nike Air Mags with power laces?
Marty McFly and his Shoes in Back to the Future 2
Well, brace yourself: All signs say Nike is gearing up to bring these 2015 shoes to store shelves today!
From the Doc himself, these shoes are definitely coming! Shoe aficionados NiceKicks.com received a mysterious package from Dr. Emmett Brown saying that a serious announcement would be coming within 24 hours. The press box, heavily adorned with the phrase “It’s About Time,” also contained some 80’s treats, a pair of Doc Brown’s 2015 glasses, and a copy of the classic film. If that didn’t seal the deal, then just look at this tweet from Executive Producer Frank Marshall:
“Something big is coming soon. Can’t say anything yet. No one should know too much about their own destiny. #BTTF”
Here’s the video that’s making the rounds, showing off the shoes in all their glowy goodness.
The details aren’t set in stone just yet. They are rumored to be extremely accurate to their film counterparts from the multi-colored LEDs and power laces (as suggested by the patent Nike filled out not long ago.) Where’s a Hoverboard when you need it?
The official announcement is set to take place later today, so stay tuned to this article for any updates as we get them. Since Back to the Future is my favorite movie of ALL TIME, I am REALLY looking forward to these shoes. Tying your own laces is so 2010.
With Shark Night 3D in theaters (close enough to Jaws 19 in 3D.. right?) and these shoes coming to stores, only one question remains: When will Pizza Hut begin using instant hydration technology?
