Oct 21, 2015 is here! The day that Marty McFly flew with Doc Brown & his Girlfriend/Wife Jennifer into the future aboard a DeLorean. If you have not yet seen the Back to the Future Trilogy, stop reading this blog right now and stream the 3 movies online immediately. For everyone else that has not been living under a rock for the last 30 years continue on. Back to the Future is a must see!
There were interesting visions in the movie about what the “Future,” will look like. The original, “Back to the Future” movie was released on July 3rd, 1985. The following 2 installments of Back to the Future were released in 1989 & 1990. It was a look into the future back in the 80’s at what the creators thought Oct 21st, 2015 would look like. One of the most iconic products of the series is the Nike Air MAG sneakers Marty McFly changed into once he arrived into the future.
The first official release of these futuristic Nike’s was in Sept of 2011. 1500 Pairs were made by Nike which were auctioned off with proceeds going towards the Michael J. Fox foundation. The sneakers looked awesome with the same style, light up features, and super high top appeal they had in Back to the Future 2. But there was one MAJOR component missing. The self-lacing factor was not included! This was a HUGE let down as one of the coolest features was not included in the release. Nike said they would eventually make it right and create a truly 100% Authentic pair of Nike MAG sneakers which will actually self lace just like in the Back to the Future sequel!
That time has some! On “Back to the Future,” Day 30 years after the first movie released, Marty McFly, aka Michael J. Fox, tries on the first pair of Nike Air MAG self lacing sneakers!
