In Back to the Future Part II, Marty, Doc, and Jennifer traveled to 2015, and we still look at that film and like to complain about the non-existence of flying cars. But what about our power laces? Surely, we are lazy enough to demand that our shoes tie themselves, but technology has let us down. All I have is a small computer in my hand that can fetch almost any piece of information I want in a matter of seconds, but I’m still tying my shoes like a sucker. The closest we’ll be able to get to the wonderful dream of Marty’s future shoes is what HalloweenCostumes.com is offering. These official replicas don’t lace themselves, but they do light up, although you will need to charge them. That’s right: You have to charge your footwear so it will be able to light up for four hours. Be sure to have guests over when you’re charging your shoes because their bewildered looks are going to be priceless.
