In case you haven't noticed, but today is October 21, 2015 - the day when Doc and Marty travel to the future in Back to the Future II. Today is also Back to the Future Day, with every website, social media page and more filled with Back to the Future content.



Today, Nike presented Michael J. Fox with the first pair of self-lacing shoes, something we saw in Back to the Future II. Fox took to Twitter to show off the self-lacing shoes, with an 8-second video that we have embedded above. If you look closely when Fox is putting the shoes on, the laces slowly flatten when his foot slides into them. The shoes also make an awesome sound, too.




Nike is planning to launch a limited edition self-lacing shoe next year, which will be made available through a strict auction process. All proceeds from the sale will be donated to Fox's Foundation for Parkinsons Research.
