While the 30th anniversary of Robert Zemeckis' Back to the Future trilogy has already passed, it still isn't deterring Nike from selling its own version of Marty McFly's automatic power lace-ups, and it definitely isn't preventing felons from making a few quick hundos. That's right: counterfeit BTTF kicks have already been spotted on the Internet, as well as how pairs of fakes compare with the real deal with their most important and outstanding eponymous attribute.
A video posted on the Instagram account fake_education (which ostensibly seems dedicated to pointing out the discrepancies between real designer sneakers and their forgeries) showcases some of the retrotech kicks (or, in this case, counterfeit kicks in-question), letting would-be buyers know that the counterfeit models even have similar self-starting lace-up capabilities — even if, as Marty himself would say, "that shark still looks fake."

The account also posted a picture of the kicks with the box they came in.

A good rule-of thumb for any potential Nike BTTF sneaks-seeker: the designer wearable movie memorabilia won't be out until next year, and even then, it will be available for auction-only purchase.
