Kobe Bryant showed up at UNDFTD this week to kick off the release of Nike's new McFly Hyperdunks. The McFlys are Back to the Future-themed basketball shoes, with a color scheme inspired by the shoes Michael J. Fox wore in Back to the Future II. They come complete with "2015" emblazoned on the right shoe's tongue, while the left one features the BTTF arrow logos. Kobe showed up at the completely-mobbed event in -- what else -- a DeLorean done up just like Doc Brown's movie car. The perennial All-Star posed for pics and signed shoes for the first 10 fans lucky enough to score a pair. Lest you think a special-edition sneaker launch like this is no big thing, know that there were people lined up outside the joint for as long as 24 hours. Nike's missing the boat if we don't get a viral of Kobe jumping over that DeLorean as a sequel to the Aston video. I mean, he's got big ups, but clearing that Mr. Fusion won't be easy. Follow the jump for a short clip of Marty putting on the shoes that started this madness some 19 years ago. Thanks for the heads-up, Steve.

      Ooh that would have been another Britney Spears-angled shot if the photographer took that picture 3 seconds later.
      I'm sure no one wants to see Kobe's Bryants- if you know what I mean.
      =-------------------= On an Unrelated note.
      Nice kicks.

      Is this for real? *checks calendar* because April 1 was three months ago. Who in their right mind would want a shoe with the BTTF logo on the tongue? And named McFly? Guess that's why i'm not making millions in the shoe business...

      This article made me LOL. I can't help wondering why now though? At this point they should just wait till 2015.

      Hey there…

      That’s me driving Kobe in the time machine. I’m not even a basketball fan and he super cool. An absolute gentleman.

      Great event, great sneaker, great guy!

      I only wish they would’ve let the friggin buy a pair. They’re not kidding about “limited release!”
