Shoes from ‘Back to the Future’ that Self-Lace sell for $52k

Remember the self-lacing shoes from ‘Back to the Future II’? They exist…and they’ll cost ya!

Someone just spent a lot of money on a pair of sneakers. Historic, collectors’ item sneakers that hold a legendary place in pop-culture history — but still, sneakers.

A pair of Nike Mag self-lacing sneakers — inspired by the ones featured in Back to the Future II — just fetched $52,500 at public auction.

Nike released replicas of the Mag model in 2011, but those didn’t include the signature self-lacing feature that made the sneakers from the film so well-known. In 2016, the company released a tricked-out Nike Mag that actually incorporated the futuristic self-lacing feature.

It’s a pair of that latter version that just sold for more than $52,000.

Heritage Auctions, which ran the bidding process, says the winning $52,500 offer is a world record for a collectible sneaker sold at public auction.
