Marty McFly Shoes

1st Pair Sells for $37,500

9/9/2011 8:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0909_btf_shoe_video_tmzGREAT SCOTT!!!!!!!

The very first pair of the Nike Air Mag -- the Marty McFly shoe from "Back to the Future II" was auctioned off in L.A. last night ... and the winning bidder dropped $37,500!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The auction -- co-hosted by Joel McHale -- went down at the Montalban Theater ... and after an INTENSE stand-off between two shoe-a-holics ... the winner was eventually crowned.

Along with the shoes, the winner also received a "plutonium case" where he can store his "McFly's"

Oh, and McHale also promised to throw in a puppy ... we'll find out if he REALLY meant it.

So far, the identity of the buyer remains a secret ... we're guessing it won't be for long.

FYI -- all of the proceeds from the auction benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research.

What's funny is that someone on here yesterday said that they were going to bid on a pair and that it's worth spending $1000.00 for them. To that person: TRY $37,500.00!! LOL
