Holding Out for the Self-Lacing Version

Back in 1990 Nike filed a patent with the US Patent and Trademark Office for the McFly 2015, a shoe based on the self-lacing sneakers Marty McFly wears when he goes back the future (II).

Now, you too, can get your McFly on (a full 4 years earlier than 2015 to boot), if you're willing to pay the price that is.  A limited number of Nike MAGs will be sold through ebay to raise money for the Micheal J. Fox Foundation for Parkinsons Research.

Considering the fact that the current bids for these shoes are all well over $3,000 I think I will just wait until hover boards come out, because really, that's what we all really want to see made into a reality from that movie.  Just remember, hover boards do not work over water!
