Proceeds will go directly to Michael J. Fox's foundation, which is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson's disease, which the actor, who played the role of Marty in the Hollywood franchise suffers for 25 years.

These shoes have a system called "Adaptive Fit", which reacts in a personalized way to the movement they perceive from the person using them and they adjust or loose depending on what is done. They also have a futuristic look that certainly lovers of Back To The Future will love.
