Much Cheaper 'Back to the Future Part II' Shoes Now Available to Buy
Just over three years ago, Nike made the dreams of Back to the Future fans come true by announcing limited edition Nike MAGs, inspired by the futuristic shoes worn by Marty McFly in Back to the Future Part II. However, they were exorbitantly expensive since they were very rare and part of a charity auction to benefit The Michael J. Fox Foundation. But the good news is that while we wait for Nike's power laces to become a reality in 2015, you can get ahold of a much cheaper set of official licensed shoes inspired by the time traveling sequel. They're not Nike shoes, but they're likely the best option for us common folk. Look!
Officially licensed shoes inspired by Back to the Future Part II from HalloweenCostumes.com:
Thanks to GeekTyrant for calling our attention to these. Again, these are officially licensed recreations of the shoes seen in Back to the Future Part II. The only things missing are the power laces and the Nike swoosh (that probably costs a lot to get approved). And yes, the shoes even light up, and they can easily be charged with an included USB cable. These shoes are still a little expensive at around $100 (available in sizes 6 through 14), but they're far cheaper than the official Nike MAGs from 2011. They're out of stock already, but you can sign up to be notified when they're in stock again so you can dress like a future boy. Cool, right?
