the line between cosplay and dressing up for halloween has been blurred. halloween costumes used to consist of mainly monsters or hideous creatures, you know, to ‘scare away spirits and goblins’. these days, halloween can be of anything that’s fun – even a Hazmat Suit from Breaking Bad and Walter White hyperflesh mask qualifies. that said, if you are a fan of Back to the Future, in particular, Back to the Future II, then you’re probably going to dress up as Marty McFly and in this case, this pair of Officially Licensed Back to the Future II Light Up Shoes is for you, well, that’s if you never managed to grab one off the auction two years ago, or never made one for yourself.
signed off by Universal Studios, this pair of replica Nike Mag sneakers is not an official Nike release. as you can see, the pair is void of Nike branding but should be good enough to complete your Marty McFly look, considering they only cost $98.99 a pair. features include textured sole for traction, adjustable Velcro strap around ankle and elastic on top, light up function (just like in the movie) and a USB port for charging up the battery pack. hoverboard is entirely optional. just remember this: don’t look down when someone said “oh, McFly, your shoe’s untied.”
