Tinie Tempah

I'LL NEVER WEAR

My $37k Marty McFly Shoes!!

9/15/2011 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

091611_tiny_tempah_videoThe British rapper who dropped $37,500 on the very first pair of those AWESOME "Back to the Future" shoes tells TMZ ... he NEVER, EVER plans to put 'em on his feet!!!!

22-year-old Tinie Tempah was leaving an MLB event in NY last night when he told us his prized Nike Air Mags are en route to Michael J. Fox -- who's gonna sign 'em!!!

As TMZ first reported, Tempeh outbid EVERYONE for the kicks at a charity auction last week -- with every single cent going towards the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research.

Well, he's got the right idea. If I saw some footage of him playin' basketball in those bad boys, I'd call...I don't know who I'd call, but SOMEONE would need to get called. 22 years old, dam - much respect.

He probably got caught up in the moment at the auction and it didn't hit him till the next day. To hear this comment in audio form click here.

He outbidded everybody else for them. That's impressive considering even spell check knows that's not a word.

Who writes these stories?

"plans to put 'em on his"

"who's gonna sign 'em"

"Outbidded"

Someone that went to public school in L.A. maybe.

Yep, as I said when we first heard of this guy "That's the best 37k that man ever spent". This is his, what, 3rd or 4th thread on TMZ alone. Welcome to American celebrity pal!! Best of luck to ya, and great gesture for charity.

"Outbidded?" Come on TMZ. At least pretend your "writers" can write.

These shoes are really a part of movie history, like Dorthy's (Judy Garlands) ruby red slippers. You dont wear them, you display them.
