In 2011, the Nike MAG launched, auctioning of 1,500 pairs on eBay. The proceeds went to the Michael J. Fox foundation for Parkinson’s Research. However, the iconic shoes were missing one important element: They had no power laces. What’s interesting is the fact that the MAGs weren’t actually a reality until 2015 anyway (in the movie). Designer Tinker Hatfield was asked about the possibility of power laces. He answered, “Are we gonna see power laces in 2015? To that, I say YES!”
So the main question is: Will we see the release of genuine Nike MAGs? Or will these power laces begin to attach themselves to other types of Nike styles as well?
