Remember how cool the power laces were when you first saw them on Back to the Future 2? Well the amazing future-invention could now become a reality as it has been discovered that Nike have filed a patent to get these bad boys in production.
Of course, the power-lace technology was first put to the Nike name within the second BTTF film. And now with just 5 years to go until the start of the Back to the Future 2 film’s story takes place, we could all be wearing power laces in a few years time, that’s if Nike actually put these in production.
By the looks of the patent, the shoes look to include a charging system and some lights along with the power-lacing component.
It is unfortunate that many patents do not get through the first stages, but I among many others will be keeping our fingers (and laces) crossed for this one!
Would you ever wear power-laces if they were brought out into the trainer world?
