    Breakthrough British rapper Tinie Tempah spent $37,500 on a pair of limited edition, Back to the Future/Marty McFly-inspired Nikes. No joke. That's a down payment on a house for most average Americans (and Brits, too!)

    Tempah is supposedly a huge Back to the Future nut and a sneaker pimp, hence this semi-extravagant purchase. According to TMZ, Tempah received the sneakers and a nifty "plutonium" carrying case. With a nearly $40,000 price tag, he should get a lot more!

    Nike is listing 150 pairs a day on eBay for a few more days. So you can nab a pair, if you've got the cash to burn and are a huge BTTF fan.

    All proceeds will benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation. Fox played Marty McFly in the film franchise and is afflicted with Parkinson's Disease. So that makes a $40,000 price tag a little more swallowable and understandable. Essentially, Tinie Tempah made a nice donation to the MJF foundation.

    Would you buy a pair of these sneakers?
