Yeah, me too.
And now with Nike's initiative to re-create McFly's self-tying shoes from Back To The Future 2, you could be! ABC News has posted an article that says Tinker Hatfield, a shoe designer at Nike, is trying to replicate these sneakers, which the movie predicted would come out in 2015. ABC states, "The website Sole Collector reported that when...asked about the futuristic sneakers, Hatfield replied, "'Are we gonna see power laces in 2015? To that, I say YES!'"
Apparently this isn't a new idea to the company. Nike released the Nike Mag Air in 2011, which didn't have self-tying laces but did look "...like they were taken from the movie prop room" (ABC).

Now here we are, at the beginning of 2015, and all I can hope is that Nike pulls through and delivers us Marty McFly's fabulous self-tying sneakers. Do you think they can pull it off?
