    They're making 1500 pairs that will be auctioned off on eBay, 150 a day for the next 10 days, with profits going towards the MJFF. They don't lace themselves. To put that into perspective, the prices on these will likely be sky high. Meanwhile if you're into prop replicas there have been (non-lacing) replicas of these available for years, that are much more affordable. Nike really should have found a way to make the laces work, that's what made them memorable from the film and not just another piece of future fashion.

    Yeah, it's suddenly a non-story. Though, they do actually look pretty cool.
