Hatfield and Parker

Hatfield and Parker determined to deal with the mission no longer as a sight gag however, as he recollects, “like a person had requested me to reinvent footwear for actual performance reasons, within the actual global, best I had 30 years to parent the technology out.” And that’s when the idea got here to him: “What about a shoe that might essentially come alive when you put it on? It’d sense you. It might become the shape of your foot, and while it came alive it might mild up. Wouldn’t or not it’s first rate if shoes could try this?”

Hatfield didn’t simply sketch what this type of shoe would seem like. He drew a storyboard in which Marty McFly first encounters a couple of shoes: He steps in, reaches down to tie the laces—an instinctual, ritual bowing all the way down to the shoe—and the shoes light up, come alive, and shape to his foot. (Hatfield says he even blanketed a snippet of McFly conversation—some thing like Wow! Electricity laces!)
