I think it's a great thing that they are releasing those shoes. Even if they are gonna cost a lot of money.

Now let's wait for the jacket, the hoverboard and...

...A litmus hat.

In regards to the edit:

I assume that they will go for more than I can afford, oh well then.

Now I've gotta watch Back to the Future part I and II again (I like III too, but it doesn't command me to rewatch it like the first two do).

So we only need flying cars and what they predicted in the movie would be actually quite close.

I want this shit more than Nando's.

Man, if I had the money, I'd definitely get some of those beasts.

I love movies, and I love me my sneakers, so I exploded once I read this article.

That's kinda silly to make shoes themed like these, but without the crucial selling point, the power laces. I've even seen hobby builders on YouTube build stuff like this - admitted, it was a little clunkier and prone to breaking, but surely that's nothing that couldn't be fixed with THE POWER OF MONEY.

It's sad to me that they're just going to auction these instead of making a real production run. I would be on top of that shit, but I don't really have a spare nine grand to buy a pair of goddamn sneakers.

While this is for a good cause and all but I getting a feeling that this won't be the last we will see those shoe. Anyone want to bet when it's 2005 they will release them again or a special edition preferable this time with the autolace?
