Michael J. Fox Seen Out on 'Back to the Future' Day

Michael J. Fox was out in New York City on Wednesday morning -- aka "Back to the Future" Day -- sporting a pair of shoes he probably laced himself and getting into a car that does not go back in time. 

For the uninitiated, October 21, 2015 is the date Marty McFly (Fox's character in the sequel) travels to when he goes into the future with Doc Brown to save his son from being arrested. 

The movie's vision of the future included flying cars, self-drying jackets and the Chicago Cubs winning the World Series ... none of which is a reality this year.
