If my calculations are correct it is now precisely Oct. 21, 2015. The future has finally arrived. Yes, it is different than we all thought. But don’t worry, it just means your future hasn’t been written yet. No one’s has. Your future is whatever you make it. So make it a good one.
Nike has announced they will be making replica Marty McFly trainers with self-tying laces. And they will do it soon enough, i.e., in spring 2016. The profits of this shoe will also go towards a good cause. The proceeds will go to the Michael J. Fox Foundation, the charity and interest group dedicated to raising awareness and money to find a cure for Parkinson’s disease. Fox is perhaps the most high-profile person who has Parkinson’s, however, it’s estimated 6.3 million people suffer from the disease worldwide.
Nike also hopes the shoes will have a practical function – self-lacing shoes could be a massive help for those with disabilities who find tying shoes difficult.
