    Hey, everyone remember Back to the Future II? You know, the one where the Doc and Marty go to the far off year of 2015 for about half of the movie? Remember all of the cool gadgets? I mean, there were holgraphic projections, hoverboards, and shoes that tied themselves. They're all just fiction of course.

    ...Or maybe not. It looks like Nike has a big announcement in the works and it's BttF related.

    This... this is pretty awesome, I have to say. I'm hoping this is real, but I don't know, what do you think?

    Wow, that's pretty interesting. As a BttF lover, I'll keep an eye out for the announcement.

    I don't like white shoes, but would get those in a heartbeat. Haha.

    Hopefully it's true.

    I love bttf. But the weird thing is that we are very close to 2015 and in the movie they have laces. You don't think.....

    That's awesome. Hopefully Vans'll adopt this technology if it exists, because Vans > Nike.

    I'd get them as a collector's item if they look the same as the ones in the movie.

    I wouldn't use them though, I like lacing my shoes.

    OK, I'm gonna put money in the bank, go a million years and get it out, with interest, then I'll have some awesome shoes.

    What did you expect? They were designed in the 80s.
    Just be thankful they're not heat-reactive day-glo colors.

    Too bad the shoe doesn't auto lace I'd take a lookalike prop for thousands of dollars if it auto laced

    I hope all the shoes get sold at full price to help cure Parkinsons. MJ Fox should never fall to the disease.
