Back To The Future Trainers By Nike

Tuesday, 20th September, 2011

I read about this a little while back but forgot to post it ๐Ÿ˜›

Nike have made 1500 pair of these special trainers, which were modelled on the same futuristic trainers which Michael J Fox aka Marty Mcfly wore in Back To The Future. The Nike Mag 2011 featured an electroluminescent outsole, space-age materials and a rechargeable internal battery good for 3,000 hours.

All this was for the Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s disease. They were being auctioned on Ebay, and now the auction is sadly over ๐Ÿ™ The auction was only available to people in the U.S. which was a disappointment.

Still, that did not stop Tinie Tempah, who won them at a charity auction in L.A. where he dropped $37,500 (around ยฃ24,000) to be one of the first to get a pair.




I’d of loved a pair! ๐Ÿ™
