So you’ve got the Flux Capacitor and even the full size time-travelling DeLorean but if you venture into the year 2015 you’re gonna look pretty stupid with those 2006-era Nikes on. That’s why you’ll need to grab these ‘authentic’ 2015-era Nikes from ebay in order to remain as inconspicuous as possible.
While they’re not any of the actual pairs made for Back To The Future 2 these replicas appear to be pretty accurate. (Based on the minimal amount of close-up screen time the shoes had.) What’s that you say? Marty McFly’s sneakers never lit up like that? Well apparently the original prop shoes were actually able to light up because of a futuristic basketball scene that was cut from the film. As a result the prop shoes were never switched on during any other scenes.
The starting bid for the shoes is $400 which is roughly what most Nikes go for these days anyways.
