Remember 20 years ago when kids fighting over expensive shoes was almost a way of life? We’re entering a strange time in our culture where there may soon be similar battles, only with Back to the Future at the center of it all. Though there is a more decadent pair of light-up sneakers coming next year, you can now get the jump on owning your very own pair of Marty McFly’s most famous footwear. Hoverboard sadly not included.
Let’s get a few things clear right away. Unlike the power-laced shoes in the film, these don’t have power laces and they aren’t made by Nike, and they aren’t actually shoes. (Just kidding about that last part.) On the bright side, they are officially licensed by Universal Studios Licensing, so it’s not like some guy is selling them out of the back of his DeLorean or anything. Just don’t expect to see the swoosh symbol on the sides. Maybe you can add it yourself with a marker.
