Nike Air MAG Back to the Future BTTF - 2016
The futuristic Nike Air MAG takes the crown as the most expensive sneakers at resale. You may recognize them as a replica version of the iconic self-lacing shoes worn by Marty McFly in the 1989 movie Back to the Future II.
In 2016, 89 pairs were released and are now valued at £27,555. The shoes feature a rechargeable built-in battery glowing LED panels, a luminescent Nike logo, and adaptive lacing technology. With the 35th anniversary approaching in July 2020, we think the price will only rise.

Nike Air Yeezy 2 Red October
Before the Yeezy line and the rapper's successful partnership with Adidas, Kanye West debuted the Air Yeezy line in collaboration with Nike in 2009.

Nike Air Back To The Future BTTF – 2011
An earlier iteration of the Back To The Future sneakers, 1,500 limited edition pairs were released in 2011. As part of the Back 4 The Future campaign, a further 10 pairs were then sold at live auctions around the world where the proceeds went to The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research.
The shoes were described by Nike as “precise replicas… down to the contours of the upper, the glowing LED panel and the electroluminescent NIKE in the strap,” but do not feature a power-lacing system.
