Nike Hypermax McFly Cx’d!

Apparently, there was some beef between Universal Pictures and Nike over this release. Universal basically threatened to sue Nike, presumably for copyright / trademark reasons, if they released this sneaker in the US. I don’t get what the big deal is. They were already released in Australia without a problem. I guess Back 2 the Future isn’t big down under. Basically it’s all about money. Universal wants a cut.¬† Why doesn’t Nike just change the name on the sneaker ? All the real sneaker heads will call them “McFly’s” anyway. Hopefully the corporate lawyers and sit down and reach an agreement on this and we’ll get these stateside.
