Back to the Future’s year-long 35th-anniversary celebration is far from over.
Footwear brand Akedo recently announced that it has re-teamed with online retailer Zavvi for a pair of limited-edition sneakers based on the beloved sci-fi franchise starring Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd.
The Back to the Future Akedo x Zavvi collaboration is officially licensed sneakers that feature a black high-top canvas design on a white base. The lateral side of the shoe boasts a striking sketch of the iconic time-traveling DeLorean set against a background of retro stripes. The medial side, meanwhile, is adorned with the official Back to the Future title card as well as the film series’ 35th-anniversary logo. A gray logo of the franchise can also be found on the tongue of the footwear.
Made from high-quality materials, the sneakers feature classic lace-up fastening, a rubber toe cap and a high-top silhouette. The shoes are also handcrafted and customized for every order.
While Akedo and Zavvi have yet to reveal the price of the sneakers, the shoes are now set to launch exclusively on Zavvi.com at 2 p.m. ET on Friday, March 26th.
As mentioned above, this isn’t the first time Akedo and Zavvi have partnered for limited-edition sneakers. Just last January, the two brands released shoes based on the popular video games Borderlands 3 and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Other pop culture-inspired footwear previously released by the two brands were based on the DC character Wonder Woman, the action-comedy film The Goonies, and thriller film series Jaws.
