We're still a few years away from October 21, 2015, the date that Michael J. Fox's Marty McFly traveled to in 1989's Back to the Future Part II and while it's highly unlikely that we'll get more than a dozen Jaws sequels before then, there's one element of that future that looks to be arriving early. "Something big is coming soon," producer Frank Marshall Tweeted this afternoon, "Can't say anything yet. No one should know too much about their own destiny." The cryptic film reference immediately inspired online theories ranging from a 3D re-release of the trilogy to a theatrical reboot of the first film. Luckily, the mystery was soon solved by sneaker blog Nice Kicks, which revealed that Nike is planning a special Back to the Future themed unveiling to take place tomorrow evening. Soon thereafter, Marshall followed up with another Tweet that read, "Going to need a lot of hover boards," with a link to the video below, showing off racks and racks of the shoe design. Official confirmation and details about the release should hopefully be available following tomorrow night's reception and unveiling.

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.
