Yeah, yeah, yeah we all want hoverboards. I know. It sucks. Also — flying cars. They don't exist. This is a tragedy. We're almost at 2015 and the world that Back to the Future 2 promised us has yet to eventuate, but it looks like we will see one of that movie's promises realised: power laces.
Tinker Hatfield is the designer behind some of Nike's most popular shoes, and at Jordan Brand's Flight Lab space in New Orleans, someone asked him about power laces. This was his reply.
“Are we gonna see power laces in 2015? To that, I say YES!”
I say hell yes — but I had a pair of Reebok Pump in the 90s. That's just how I roll.
As for the hover board. I'm still holding out hope.
