While October 21, 2015 has come and gone, fans still have many opportunities to relive the adventure of Back to the Future II. One such opportunity comes in the form of an auction. Later this month, the light-up Nikes that adorned Michael J. Fox’s Marty McFly in his second go around in the time-traveling DeLorean will go up for auction in the U.K. along with other cinematic memorabilia.
Prop Store CEO Stephen Lane said in recent a statement:
“We’re super-excited to be offering Marty McFly’s Nike Shoes from Back to the Future Part II as part of Prop Store’s Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction on 26th September 2017 at London’s BFI IMAX proudly presented by ODEON. We’ve got hundreds of fantastic lots going under the gavel, including Jules’ wallet from Pulp Fiction and Tony Montana’s Hand-Painted Mansion Portrait from Scarface which is complete with bullet holes!”
Fans may remember Nike’s tribute to the 30th anniversary of the film when they released their own line of Nike MAGs. Nike designer, Tinker Hatfield created the shoes for the movie, and made sure the real Nike version featured both self-lacing and light up technology! 1,500 pairs of the shoes were auctioned on eBay, with the proceeds benefitting the Michael J. Fox Foundation.
The Nikes from the film are expected to sell for anywhere between £25,000 – 35,000 (around $32,390-$45,346). This is small potatoes compared to the DeLorean that previously sold for about $541,000. Bids are accepted online, over the phone, or in person leading up to the main event on September 26. Can’t make the flight to London? Don’t worry! The auction will also be live-streamed for fans across the pond.
