‘Back To The Future’ Sneaker Designer Tinker Hatfield Promises Self-Lacing MAG By 2015

Back to the Future II Nike MAG

Pure excitement quickly turned to sheer disappointment recently when it was announced that Nike was going to release the MAG, the actual self–tying sneaker that Michael J. Fox‘s Marty McFly character wore in Back to the Future II, BUT that they would only be releasing a limited 1,500 pairs of the shoe via auction (which, on the first day, were running many thousands of dollars per pair) and they would, sadly, not be self–lacing.

But that does not appear to be the end of it. Legendary shoe engineer Tinker Hatfield, the man who designed this brand new Nike MAG and invented the original Pump sneakers, was on hand at the release party for the MAG and had some encouraging words for those saddened by the lack of self–lacing.

Back to the Future II Nike MAG

It’s very much likely that we all at one point or another have dreamed of those crazy fictional things from the “future” we’ve seen created for movies, TV shows, comics, and video games somehow being made into a reality some day. And perhaps the movie that presented the most fun and intriguing futuristic goodies to bring to life, was of course Back to the Future II.

The most iconic futuristic item shown in the movie would have to be the hoverboard—a skateboard without wheels that hovers a foot or so above the ground—which hasn’t been mass–produced…yet…though one artist did build his own working hoverboard a while back.

But after that, it’s all about the self–lacing shoes that Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) wore in the movie, called the Nike MAG. And now those very shoes are a reality…sorta. A reality for those of us with a lot of money sitting around, anyway.

Continue reading to learn how you can try and get your own pair of the sneakers, and to see a couple of videos—one of which has none other than Christopher Lloyd returning to the role of Doc Brown!

Revisiting A Classic: 13 Moments From ‘Back To The Future’ That Still Get A Reaction

Back To the FutureIn honor of the 25th anniversary of the release of Back To The Future, which arrives for the first time on Blu-ray tomorrow, and the date when the events of the movie begin (October 25), Universal re-released the film on Saturday and today in select theaters across the country. I went to a packed Saturday morning showing, and oh does this film totally hold up over time.

I’ve seen Back To The Future countless times on DVD (and VHS!) and there are certain scenes and quotes that alway make me laugh and several moments that give me chills or make me want to cheer. That’s why going to see the movie in a theater filled with fellow fans is such a great experience — there’s an entire theater of people to laugh and clap along with.

For instance, at a re-release of The Nightmare Before Christmas the audience sang along to all the tunes, while at a midnight showing of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan everyone held their fist up and yelled “Khaaaannnn!!!” along with Kirk.

At the Back To The Future showing I attended, the audience was a lively bunch. They cheered when the title treatment came up, and at the first appearances of Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly and Christopher Lloyd as Doc Brown, and of course, when the end credits rolled. But there were so many more moments that got a reaction from the crowd, even after all these years.

Here Are 13 Moments From ‘Back To The Future’ That Still Get A Reaction.

Michael J. Fox & Lea Thompson - Back To The Future ReunionYesterday, Spike TV released a promo video for the Spike TV Scream Awards of Michael J. Fox back in his Back To The Future Marty McFly get-up getting ready to ride the time-traveling DeLorean. In honor of the film’s 25th anniversary, Fox and the cast of BTTF will reunite during the awards ceremony. But that isn’t the only reunion in town.

EW recently got Fox back together with his BTTF co-star Lea Thompson for a photoshoot with the film’s iconic time-traveling vehicle.

Watch the video here below, which includes Fox and Thompson talking about filming with the DeLoreon, as well as Fox’s famous awkward physical comedy in the movie, especially the scenes of Fox back in time as Marty meeting his then-teenaged hormone-fueled mom (Thompson).

The photoshoot is part of EW’s first-ever Reunions issue, which brings together the casts of 12 movies and television shows, like Lord Of The Rings, Pretty in Pink, and Alias. The issue hits stands tomorrow, October 15, 2010.

Must See: Michael J. Fox Goes ‘Back To The Future’ In Marty McFly Reunion

It’s been twenty years since the third and final Back to the Future movie was released, but the popularity of this classic trilogy seems just as high right now as it’s ever been before…perhaps even higher!

Putting the length of time that has passed since the last film was released aside, Back to the Future has continued to show up every now and again over the years. We’ve seen the creation of things we saw in the movies like the hoverboard, word of the big Blu-ray trilogy being released later this month, the announcement of a new game featuring Christopher Lloyd as Doc Brown, and even the footage of Eric Stoltz playing Marty McFly just yesterday.

But if there’s one thing people would really just love to see, it would have to be Mr. Michael J. Fox, back in full McFly attire, and reuniting with his Delorean, right? Well, now we can. Continue on to the bottom of this post to see a video of just that!
