Who remembers wanting a pair of these sweet hightops back in 1989??

A hoverboard, those insta-Pizza Hut pizzas and self-lacing sneakers. Those are the three things I always wanted from "Back to the Future Part II" and now I can actually have one of them. Almost.

Yes, despite a friend from 7th grade's unwavering claims that hoverboards were real, I'm actually talking about the shoes. It seems that Nike has actually created a limited number, 350 to be exact, of Marty McFly's Hyperdunk shoes from the movie.

The high tops have become an instant collector's item and are selling for up to $2K on Ebay, perhaps linked to Kobe Bryant's in-store appearance promoting the line - he supposedly rolled up in a Delorean! Nice.

Not only are the shoes fantastic replicas, that unfortunately don't self-tie, but the packaging features Doc's signature catch-phrase "Great Scott!" and the tongues of the shoes are emblazoned with the trilogy's insignia.

All in all, a pretty necessary part of any true "Back to the Future" fans' collection. Now, let's get back to the hoverboards

When I was a kid everybody had these in school. I'll bet there's a few pairs still hanging from telephone lines around LA.

Ummm....Nike never made them until now. You might be thinking of the Nike Pumps?
