  • These Back To The Future Shoes Are So Hot Right Now

    Although the hoverboard was the most wanted item from “Back to the Future Part II,” the self-lacing, light up Nike shoes worn by Marty McFly were a close second. In 2011, Nike released a limited run of MAGs that were replicas of the shoes from the movie (sans automatic laces) but only 1500 pairs were sold at tens of thousands of dollars each. It seemed as if regular folks would never get a chance to own the shoes. Until now. Universal Studios has officially licensed these Air MAG replicas available exclusively through HalloweenCostumes.com. But if you want them in time for Halloween, you’re out of luck. They’ve already sold out and the next shipment won’t be available until November. That’s still plenty of time for Christmas, though! Unfortunately, they still don’t lace automatically (rumor has it Nike will unveil that technology next year), but these replicas do light up and can be recharged via USB. A velcro strap around the ankle and elastic at the top will keep these shoes on your feet as you’re fleeing from Griff and his band of goons. They may not have the signature Nike swoosh, but at just $99 versus thousands, that is something more »
