You Can Own Michael J. Fox's Self-Lacing Shoes from 'Back to the Future 2'

I wanted a pair of these shoes more than anything in world. Who didn't? Self lacing Nike shoes.  Marty McFly was so damn cool!

Now they could be yours!

Back To The Future producer Bob Gale mentioned recently announced they were auctioning off memorabilia from the movies at Profiles In History.  All proceeds go to charitable foundations like The Michael J. Fox Foundation in their fight against Parkinson's Disease.
This custom made Nike shoe was worn by Michael J. Fox as "Marty McFly" in Back to the Future II. When Doc Brown and Marty arrive in the year 2015, Doc asks Marty to put on clothes similar to Marty Jr. To help him pass for a contemporary teenager, Doc Brown gives Marty the latest in high-tech outerwear. The first thing he puts on is the self-lacing future Nikes.

This particular shoe was specifically made for walking around. Original future Nike 2015 self-lacing shoes are extremely rare and one of the most sought-after props from one of the most iconic Sci-Fi movies ever made.

These shoes are obviously very rare and that comes with a high price tag.  Estimated value of the show is between $12,000-$15,000 (Hover Board not included).
Head on over to Profiles in History to see all the awesome Back to the Future memorabilia available to buy.
