    Nike to Release Marty McFly's Shoe from "Back to the Future 2"

    http://thisismynext.com/2011/09/07/n...hoes-tomorrow/

    It looks like Nike is actually going to introduce the Air Mag shoes from Back to the Future, Part II. The screen shot above is from a video posted by DocEmmettBrown88 (get it?) and while the shoes you’re looking at are probably renders, the viral campaign to promote them is certainly real, as that NiceKicks has been reporting. It has been short, though, starting last night and leading up to a Nike press conference at 8:30 pm Pacific. Nike actually already has a patent for “footwear with an automatic lacing system,” which helps make this all seem more likely than it would otherwise.

    Shouldn't Nike release this in 2015 instead?

    I will pass on the shoes if I can land myself a Mr. Fusion instead.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Jumping the gun a little.
    Because the plain people are able to speak and understand, and even, in many cases, to read and write, it is assumed that they have ideas in their heads, and an appetite for more. This assumption is a folly.

    If they were actually auto-lace, that'd be more awesomer.

    These without auto-lace is really stupid. Can't wait until they release the hover-board without the hover and a sports almanac without any scores.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    for as much as they are going for they should make sure you can get it in the size you need.

    I like the fact that the auctions are going for $9,000, but note that they do offer free shipping.
