Marty McFly’s Self Lacing Shoes Exist

In a lot of ways, Back To The Future was completely unrealistic, for instance, the way newspapers continue to exist. But then there were other things that were completely sound and reasonable like Marty McFly’s self-lacing shoes. Which are available! FINALLY! And being auctioned off on e-bay! Check out this video to learn more.

    Michael J. Fox is truly my hero. Whenever I see him or read about him, it brings a little tear to my ear, because I am reminded so much of my grandfather; who passed away from Parkinson’s while I was still in high school. I hope that many people bid lots of money on eBay for these (really freakin’ awesome!) sneakers to help raise money for the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, which is a great cause that is obviously close and dear to my heart.

    PS– Just checked over on eBay and the sneakers are currently listed at $8,200. Yikes! Still… if I had the money, I would totally do it.

    Michael J. Fox is extremely awesome and these shoes are as well, but on a serious note: does this mean there’s hope that Hover-boards will actually happen? Would it help if I started a charity called Hope for Hover-boards? If not, can I start that charity anyway?

    I think this is awesome. I mean come on, we haven’t even reached the type of future that “The Jetsons” envisioned, so for these shoes to be happening now is feat in itself. haha Besides, the fact that Marty McFly and the “Back to the Future” franchise is so iconic and beloved, They look freakin’ sweet, there was no way people wouldn’t like them.

    But, especially since all the proceeds are going to Parkinson’s research, it just makes it that much more of a great idea. Kudos Michael J. Fox & Nike.
