Back To The Future Power Laces Coming Next Year Quintessential Gent 17 February, 2014 The future is here.

As reported by solecollector Nike designer Tinker Hatfield said “Are we gonna see power laces in 2015? To that, I say YES!” Surely it’s only a matter of time before hoverboards become a reality as well. 2016? I think that’s doable.
