Glasses Nike will release self-tying sneakers from 'Back to the Future II' in 2015

During an appearance at the Jordan Brand's Flight Lab space in New Orleans, designer Tinker Hatfield was asked about the possibility of seeing power lacing next year, and his answer may surprise you.

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

And what about the time machines? Those were meant to have been invented thirty years ago!

Who says they weren't? Marty destroyed the one and the other disappeared into the past.

I sure could use the self-tying laces for my skates. Man, I'm tired of all that lacing.

I always thought it would be fun if someone remade Back to the Future II next year using current technology and trends.
