Taking a nod from the activism of Michael Moore, Al Cabino is petitioning sneaker giant Nike to re-create the hi-top made famous in Back to the Future Part II by Marty McFly. Gaining popularity (and signatures) by the minute, it seems Cabino's dream may just become a reality with everyone from music producers through to fashion designers lending their support.
"Al Cabino, a self-described sneaker activist, is fighting for your right to wear sneakers inspired by the film Back to the Future Part II. An avid collector of rare kicks, Cabino recently launched an online petition demanding that Nike release a shoe modeled after the gray moonboots worn by Michael J. Fox in the 1989 movie. Nike originally created the sneakers for the film, but they were never made available to the public, something Cabino is hoping to change." MTV News
"This guy likes the sneakers Marty McFly wore in Back to the Future Part II so much he started a petition to persuade Nike to make them." USA Today
