    If they made these in the 80's with just the style of back to the future they would have sold a lot of shoes. I want a pair of these :).

    That's pretty funny...

    Someone in my neighborhood actually has a Delorean, crappy car, but I admit I'm extremely jealous when I see that ahole driving it.

    Vanilla ice had a crazy car door on his car in the 80's, they only made 2 of them. It was really sick.

    "doors that open weird": Obviously this one is not familiar with gull wing, Scissor, or butterfly style doors.

    This just shows how our priorities as a civilization are screwed up. That movie series offered us so many items to inspire our inventors and scientists.

    Do we invent the time machine Dolorean? No.

    Do we invent the hover skateboard? No

    Do we invent the cool 3D shark that jumps out at you and scares you? No.

    We invent self tying shoes.

    Doh, I should have read further than the headline... The $37,500 shoes are the ones that Michael J. Fox wore in the first movie...

    You also forgot the self drying jacket...Besides, It's not even been 30 years yet - give 'em chance. I'm sure they're all on their list of things to do.

    Foo Foo Sarcasm!
  24. I only have to lace and tie my sneakers once in their lifetime as it is.

    Personal judgement: Shoe is marketing fad, and ugly at that.
  25. chill out about the fashion, and read why there doing it. im pretty sure the funds go to the michael j foxx something something association. there not trying to 'bring it back'. its for his Parkinson disease charity.
