Tinie Tempah bags Back to the Future trainers

The rapper splashed out £24,000 on sneakers from the hit movie.
Great deals on musical instruments
UK rapper Tinie Tempah has definitely made it to the top of the music game as he has splashed out a massive £24,000 on a limited edition pair of Nike trainers. They're not just any ordinary pair of rare trainers, but the sportswear giant's latest creation – replicas of the same futuristic trainers from the hit movie Back to the Future II. Moreover, Tinie becomes the first "official" owner of the pair of glowing trainers made popular by Michael J Fox's character Marty McFly when he travels into the future to sort out his chaotic life across different periods of time. There are only 1,500 of the special trainers available, which Tinie snapped up at an auction. The money made from the sale will go towards the Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Disease, which was set up by the star after he was diagnosed with the condition. It's been a great week for the urban musician as he was not only nominated for a Mercury Prize, which eventually went to PJ Harvey, but also took home the Solo Artist of the Year prize at the GQ Men of the Year Awards.
