Year: 2008

Ever since Back to the Future Part II released in ’89, sneaker enthusiasts and tech geeks have been crying out to Nike to make it happen — for real, a petition and everything was started. Almost 20 years after the film came out, The Swoosh tried appeasing fans with the Hyperdunk McFlys which featured a similar build and colorway. Kobe Bryant was even at UNDFTD signing autographs out of a DeLorean to help celebrate the release. Little did anyone know the whole time the geniuses at Nike had been patiently working on the real thing, this was just the antipasto. (The Hyperdunk, which was the official shoe of the '08 USA gold-medal Olympic team, wasn't too shabby in any form.)
