Nike Dunk 6.0 DeLorean shoes – Click above for high-res image gallery

We internet types don't always condone the idea of waking up at the crack of dawn on Black Friday for some mad-dash holiday shopping, but if there was ever a product we'd wait in line for, this might just be it. Starting this Friday, November 26, Nike will be selling its brand-new Dunk 6.0 DeLorean shoe, modeled after what is perhaps the most iconic movie car of all time, the DMC-12 from Back to the Future.

Our favorite stainless-steel sports car has been reinterpreted in the form of this seriously sweet pair of kicks, featuring a matte silver, no-sew constructed upper body. The shoe's sole mimics the DMC-12's 80's-tastic taillights, and there's even a Belfast stamp on the tongue, giving a hat tip to the Irish factory where John Z's machines were originally produced. It even comes in a gullwing-inspired box.

No official details have been released as to how many pairs of these special shoes will be produced or what they will cost, though a few online sources have cited that 1,000 pairs will be available worldwide. Knowing our luck, these hot kicks will surely sell out faster than you can shout, "Eighty-eight miles an hour!"

      It doesn't look like it has automatic lace up but you know I wish it had Velcro shoe laces from the 80's. I just love how Velcro laces were easy to "tie" an "untie".

      Thanks but without a flux capacitor I'm not interested.

      Just a heads up: about 55% of the population of Belfast - and the vast majority of the people who worked at DeLorean - would be offended (or at the very least, rather confused), at it being called "Irish".

      Yes, 45% of the population would agree it should be Irish (but would not say it is Irish - that's the problem). Many, many, many Americans who have never been there and actually understood what goes on there would say it *is* Ireland, but virtually nobody would agree with them on any side.

      But that's not the point, it's just not accurate - even the IRA at the time would have insisted DeLorean was a British company, subsidised by the British government in a province governed by the British where the majority of people identified themselves as part of the UK!

      Either way, it might be simpler to just refer to it as "Northern Ireland", which close to 100% agree is a perfectly reasonable name for it, now as it was then.

      As for the folks you know who'd debate the point "forcibly", can I suggest they actually go and visit the place first? They might learn that most people in the province have learned to get on with each other in peace - something they might learn from, rather than "forcibly" project their opinions. We've had enough of that attitude already, and it's killed over 4,000 in the last 40 years on all sides, so thanks but tell them to learn something about the place or just shut up.

      It's not a simple issue. You only invite this kind of complicated debate by not just doing what everybody in Belfast does and refer to it as "Northern Ireland" rather than try and make a cheap point that all sides would agree doesn't help advance the situation and causes problems. Please try and avoid it next time.

      I heard they have a hidden compartment in the heels for some blow.

        DAMN YOU! You stole my joke. :)

      Utter rubbish, wouldn't be caught dead wearing those. Ghastly.
        • 4 Years Ago
        You're no fun.

        I'm just sad they aren't self-lacing.

      Cool, very cool. But not as awesome as the Boba Fett Adidas.

      Wow, just wow. I'll have a pair thank you very much.

      Wow! As a child of the 80's, I have to say those shoes are fantastic and the packaging is spot-on. The only thing that bugs me is the limited release... a 1,000 pairs worldwide?! Really? How 'bout putting them up for order on the Nike Website for a limited time only (maybe have a cross-promotion with delorean.com or various car blogs). Most of these shoes are going to end up on the secondary market (eBay, Craigslist), sell for 3-5 times original value and Nike won't see a dime.

      Will these be available at Big Lots?
        • 4 Years Ago
        Yes. In about three months ...

      I don't normally like outlandish shoes, but I find myself reading this article through a smile. I actually like them.
      • 4 Years Ago
      If it wasn't for the fact that Nike Dunks are from personal experience about as durable as a wet cardboard box I'd be all over these! They look fantastic and are styled after one of my all time favorite cars!
