UPDATE: The Nike Air MAG will NOT have power laces. They DO light up though, for up to 4 hours at a time. There are currently no plans to sell them at stores, and will instead be auctioned off on EBAY, and ALL proceeds with go to Michael J. Fox’s foundation to find a cure for Parkinson’s. Great move Nike…pretty awesome. I DO wish I could buy some though.
I bet Kanye will have a pair.
I’m not a shoe guy.
I mean, i AM…i like shoes as much as the next guy. I’ve bought two pairs of shoes within the last month, but that was mostly because I needed them. But, there are people in this world that are REALLY, REALLY into collecting shoes. People like the guys over a Nice Kicks, who run a website soley devoted to shoes. Which, i guess is pretty cool. But that’s all besides the point.
News is breaking today on all my Nerd News websites that Nike is planning on unveiling something BIG tonight (9.8.11), and links have been placed around the internet very cleverly that point to what the unveiling might be:
Matt Halfhill over at Nice Kicks has a just posted a story telling how he was randomly called by Nike at midnight, and received a request to be flown out to Los Angeles TODAY for “a big announcement.” As he points out, when they won’t tell you what it is you’re going to see, “you know it’s something bigger than a new colorway of Dunks.”
When Mr. Halfhill arrived in his hotel room, he found something waiting for him:
An invitation, one that says, “It’s about Time.”
A saying usually used to concede that something has been supposed to happen for a long time. But in this case, maybe it’s saying that the announcement is literally about “Time.” Hmmmm. What else is in the box?
Oh Wow. Are those what I think they are?
Yes. Yes they are.
If you still haven’t gotten it yet, kiddies, let me hit you with this:
All signs point to it. It looks like NIKE IS GOING TO RELEASE POWER LACES!!!
