‘Back to the Future’ Nike Mag shoes can be yours

Go back to “Back to the Future” with these sweet kicks.

Prop Store

You don’t need Doc Brown and a DeLorean to get a pair of futuristic Nike Mag shoes. Auction house Prop Store is putting a set of Marty McFly’s iconic kicks from “Back to the Future: Part II[1]” up for bid next month. The shoes are not quite as spry-looking as when the film was released in 1989, but it’s fun to get a good look at the prop.

Note the textured blue-flecked foam sole coming up around the shoe, the LED lights in the heel and the glowing Nike logo on the ankle straps. The self-lacing action seen on film involved a bit of movie magic, so don’t expect these prop shoes to tighten themselves. “Several versions were created in order to achieve the various special-effects requirements for the self-lacing sci-fi shoes; this pair is a light-up walk-around version,” the auction description says.

Prop Store’s live auction[2] takes place on September 26 in London. The auction of “600 original props, costumes and rare production material lots” also includes a C-3PO special effects head from “The Empire Strikes Back” and Jack Nicholson’s Joker costume from “Batman,” according to the site[3]. Bidders can register now and place proxy bids online starting September 1.

The Prop Store[4] expects the Nike Mag shoes to sell for up to £46,000 (?35,000, AU£58,000).
