Nike have announced the power-laces that tightened up Marty McFly's hi-tops in Back to the Future Part II will become a reality by 2015.

The character played by Michael J Fox in the 1985 installment of the trilogy sported a pair of Nike trainers as he skateboarded around Hill Valley.

But when the time-traveling teenager arrives 30 years in the future in Part II, released in 1989, the brand had made a few changes.

Fans of the film gawked at the grey trainers that automatically tightened and adjusted to fit his feet. But it was the self-trying "power laces" that made cinema-goers gasp and the fantasy footwear became part of cinema history.

Until now. Persona Magazine got word that designer Tinker Hatfield has confirmed the power laces will arrive to mark the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future and the year the second film was set in. Speaking to Sole Collector at the Jordan Brand Flight Lab in New Orleans, Hatfield said: "Are we gonna see power laces in 2015?”

"To that I say yes!"

Hatfield has not revealed what shoe the power laces will come with yet.

In 2011, Nike created 1,500 limited edition pairs of the MAG hi-tops, an exact replica of Marty's trainers, and each pair was auctioned on eBay.

The proceeds were a whopping $3.5million and all the money was donated to the Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research.

The 52-year-old actor was diagnosed with the disease during filming of the rural town comedy Doc Hollywood in 1990.
