none of us own marty mcfly back to the future NIKE air mags. 89 were released in 2016 and now each is worth tens of thousands of USD. stockx lists the current value of one at $30,000 — but if you’re up for something a little more homemade and a lot more cuddly, turkish crochet artist, sevda yazici, is selling her versions of marty’s kicks for $59.

the ‘back to the future knitted slippers’ are great for cosplaying. they’re handmade to order out of organic, woolen, and acrylic yarns for men, women, couples, and children, and if back to the future isn’t your thing, yazici’s etsy shop, fifthavenue5, has more pop culture goodness (her bitcoin chuck high tops aren’t volatile at all — only $43 bucks). you’ll find classic marty mcfly quotes beneath the rest of these photos.
