“Back To The Future” Inspired Shoes Selling for $3500 a Piece
Anybody remember that scene in Back To The Future II, where Marty McFly wore those really cool self-lacing Nike trainers? Well, now film and sneaker fans can get their hands on their own pair, for a price, and for a good cause.
Nike announced they would be selling replicas of the famous Nike Mag from the movie "Back To the Future II." The company will produce only 1,500 pairs and will be selling 150 pairs every day for the next ten days. Already the shoes have been selling for over $3500 per pair. The drawback? the shoes don't actually lace themselves like they do in the movie.
But it's not just pure movie memorabilia. The proceeds from the sell of these shoes will be donated to the Micheal J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research. And with each pair selling at nearly $4000 now, the foundation should be getting a pretty big check. If you want to check the shoes out for yourself, check out Nike's eBay site.
The shoes are cool, and the proceeds are for a great cause, but I'm still waiting on those sweet hover boards.
