Marty McFly Shoes

Mystery Buyer REVEALED!!!!!

So ... what kind of a person drops $37,500 on a pair of crazy "Back to the Future" shoes??? A 22-year-old British rapper named Tinie Tempah ... that's who.

TMZ spoke with Tinie's rep ... who told us the London native is a serious shoe collector ... and he simply fell in love with the Marty McFly sneakers at the charity auction in L.A. last night.

We're told Tinie -- whose new song "Written In the Stars" has become a worldwide hit -- is on his way to South Africa at the moment.

No word if he's actually wearing the shoes on the plane ... but he should be.

Screw that, I would NOT wear a pair of $37,000 shoes to the damn airport. And these shoes belong to Kanye, I won't really accept them on any other rapper's feet.

Well, it too much to pay for any pair of shoes, but it did get him some publicity. A lot of ppl who never heard of him before might google him now!

Wow, a 5 exclamation point headline! We must have killed Kaddafi or the equally as horrible Anthony Bourdain, right? Oh, it's about some foreign rapper nobody's ever heard of who bought a pair of shoes. Gotcha.
