The Nike Hyperfunk McFly release had so much hype attached to it. We’ve put together a guide on everything you need to know about these iconic trainers.
Who doesn’t love Back to the Future? It’s one of the best loved film franchises of all time. We’re taking a closer look at the trainer that Marty McFly wore and the rest of us were desperate to try back in 2015.
Nike Hyperdunk Mcfly
The Hyperdunk is without a doubt one of the best loved basketball trainers we’ve seen on film. Fans of the film had been desperate for decades to get their hands on the futuristic sneakers Marty McFly wore in Back To The Future 2 and the release was ultimately the biggest of 2015.
The trainers were the first to feature Nike’s Flywire support technology in the upper and their comfort alone makes them an incredible sneaker, let alone they’re from one of the best films of all time.
- Nike Flywire upper for added support.
- Glow in the dark rubber outsole.
- Back to the Future tongue design.
The moment sneaker fans around the World first saw this design in 1989, they fell in love. Marty McFly travelled into 2015 in Back to the Future 2 and slipped into a pair of Nike Mags to ride a hover board around the city. Originally designed by Nike legend Tinker Hatfield they were released in 2011 and then as limited edition Hyperdunks in 2015.
