Do you have a toddler in your house? Are you a Back to the Future fan? Then you’ve gotta get your kid a pair of these amusing baby booties made to look like Marty McFly’s famed Nike Air Mag shoes. zoom in These handmade Air Mag booties are available from FifthAvenue5, and crocheted from organic yarn. They don’t offer the self-lacing feature of the ones seen in Back to the Future II, but they still look awesome, and they look easy enough for you to put on your kid’s feet. zoom in While they’re probably best as baby booties, they can be made in sizes from US 0.5 baby up to size 7 youth, so if you’ve got small enough feet, you can grab a pair for yourself too.

In the 1980s science fiction hit “Back to the Future,” Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) travels through time wearing a pair of high-flying, self-lacing Nike Air Mags. In real life, Nike produced 89 pairs of the techno sneakers in 2016 to benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research to the tune of $6.5 million. While the average Joe or Jane probably will never own a pair—they’re now valued at tens of thousands of dollars—the next best thing just may be comfy, crocheted slippers. Crochet artist Sevda Yazici has created much more affordable sneakers decked out with striking detail. Yazici, who lives in Ankara, Turkey, learned to crochet from her grandmother. She always admired sports shoes and saw them as a symbol of freedom. Yazici combined her craftsmanship with her love of sneakers to create a knitted line of sports shoes that she sells on her Etsy shop, FifthAvenue5. The crocheted Nike Air Mags are made to order for men, women and children. They are handmade using organic, woolen spun and acrylic yarns. Yazici has recreated other popular shoe styles as well, including Bitcoin Converse Chuck High Tops and Nike Air Jordans. For more information, visit
