It’s 2014, and I’m not hovering on a hoverboard, YET. This makes me sad because taking the wheels off of my skateboard like Ali G only goes so far. Back To The Future II LIED to my face! It smells like manure in here!

Wait, apparently we have hope, you chicken. Via Sole Collector:

During an appearance at the Jordan Brand’s Flight Lab space in New Orleans earlier today, 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.

We have futuristic smartphones, tablets, cars, TV’s, and computers, but here I am tying my shoes like some kind of Neanderthal?


This isn’t right. It’s been over 20 years since the movie, and the tech shown in it still makes me watch in wonderful bliss. If I can throw my shoes on and they automatically tie themselves without me bending over, that would be great. Now, about those pizzas.


Get on that, scientists.
