When Nike’s new Air Mags with working power laces are finally available, there is little doubt they’re going to cost a small fortune. But if you’ve always wanted Marty’s futuristic Nikes from Back to the Future II, and don’t mind never being able to wear them, Hot Toys’ new BTTF II Marty is a cheaper way to go.

A whole generation of people grew up dreaming that one day they would own these shoes, worn by Marty McFly in Back to the Future II. Now, it appears that Nike is releasing Back to the Future style Nike Kicks so that everybody can feel like they're about to jump onto an antigrav skateboard.
