Life was bleak for Marty McFly; his band was going nowhere and his parents were miserable – what could save his family? In comes the DeLorean DMC-12, a quirky sports car transformed into a plutonium powered time-machine capable of advancing or backtracking to any time period, so long as the settings are inputted correctly and the car reaches a speed of 88 miles per hour. In its latest mission, the Doc’s DeLorean speeds into the future – November 22nd, 2010 to be exact, and arrives in the form of a Nike 6.0 Dunk SE, Nike’s do-it-all action sports sneaker combining sport-ready construction and a silhouette born in the same year as Back 2 The Future’s original setting of 1985.
The metallic silver box features gull-winged doors box-top with a DMC and Nike 6.0 badge placed adroitly on the corner; inside each door is one shoe – a one-piece upper featuring a sharp metallic silver with black piping making out the seams, with the bottom-most eyestay a reinterpretation of the famous gull-wing doors. The black rubber outsole – set to match the bumper of the DeLorean – hides a orange, red, and white outsole, which mimics the car’s tail-lights. The tongue features a special embossed tag paying tribute to the Irish car company located in Belfast, and on the heeltab is a stamped ‘DMC’ (Delorean Motor Company). Hop in the Nike 6.0 Dunk SE ‘DeLorean’ and teleport after the jump to check out the great detailed gallery of this futuristic shoe!
