Sneaker History: Nike Hyperdunk Supreme “McFly” (2015)

Back to the Future Part II

In July of 1985, a time before many were into sneakers much less born, the first Back to the Future movie was released. Written and directed by Roger Zemeckis, produced by Steven Spielberg and starring names like Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd and Lea Thompson. But for #sneakerholics, Back to the Future Part II was the favorite.

It was during the second movie that we laid our eyes on the Nike Air Mag. Traveling forward into time, Marty McFly arrived on October 21st, 2015. There the futuristic DeLorean fit right in as technology has taken over daily living. Part of his outfit to fit in were a fresh pair of hightop Nike shoes that were self lacing with glowing logos, speckled soles and matching the hoverboard perfectly.

Although Nike has not released the Air Mag yet (technically they have 4 more years) in July 2008 they did release a special Hyperdunk Supreme inspired by the shoe. The officially licensed shoe paid homage to the Air Mag by utilizing many of the same styling cues. From the speckled midsole, glowing details and colors. The tongues featured BTTF arrows on the left tongue and 2015 on the right shoe. Thank you to the SneakerGuru for uploading these onto the wiki.

Other shoes have been influenced from the Back to the Future series, the Nike SB Zoom Tre AD and Nike 6.0 Dunk Low “Delorean”, but we feel the Hyperdunk 2015 “McFly” executed it the best. Do you agree with us? Let us know in the comment section below or on Twitter.
