Now it looks as though a new version of the shoes might be released in 2015 with the original light accents and self-tying laces. Was Hatfield actually serious in his comments, or just trying to get a round of applause for fun? Who knows, but hope floats and so do hoverboards.
|You made a time machine...out of LEGO?|
Over the years, Back to the Future has remained as popular as ever. Making the rounds are a variety of exclusive models of the DeLorean (LEGO, Hot Wheels, etc) and the annual "Future Day" meme. The meme seems to go out annually, trying to trick people into thinking "today is the day Marty McFly traveled to." For your reference, the real date will be 21 October 2015. This year, however, The Michael J. Fox show featured a guest appearance by Doc Brown himself, Christopher Lloyd.
In the long, run, these shoes may not actually be released. If they do, it may be a limited run and for charity again. Either way, 2015 is going to be a popular year for Back to the Future merchandise.
What do you think? Would you own a pair of these shoes? Even just for charitable purposes?
