Its the year 2015.  I want to know where the hoverboards and self-lacing shoes are.  This is what Back To The Future Part II promised us.

In 2011 Nike sold 1,500 pairs of Air Mag shoes on eBay to raise money for the Michael J. Fox Foundation.  10 additional pairs were sold at auctions around the world.  The shoes sold for $2,300 to $10,000 a pair.  If that was a little too expensive for some people, Nike made 350 replica ceramic shoes you could buy.  They also sold this pin.  The pin can be picked-up on the secondary market now for $20.00 to $89.00.
