Chad Johnson

EXCLUSIVE

1221_chad_ochocincoChad Johnson just bought himself an early Christmas gift ... those AWESOME Marty McFly shoes from "Back to the Future" ... and it only cost him $8,000!!!

Sources close to the former Miami Dolphins player tell TMZ ... Chad (an avid shoe collector) found the sneakers at ATC Miami -- a high-end sneaker shop in Miami Beach -- and decided he HAD to have 'em.

We're told the shop wanted $10k for the shoes ... but Chad managed to haggle his way down to a reasonable $8k.

It's a helluva deal -- considering rapper Tinie Tempah dropped $37,500 on a pair of the Nike kicks during a charity auction for the Michael J. Fox Foundation last year. 

For the record, Nike only made 1,500 pairs of the shoe ... and we're told Chad has yet to decide if he'll actually wear them out ... in the future.

What a waste of money! Isn't it better to invest in something that will appreciate.

Is Chad crazy? This fool has no job still has to pay child support and here he is buying these ugly behind shoes. What is going through his head? Was this an investment or is this big dummy going to actually wear the shoes and accept the deprecation? Did he buy them just to look at them? Dang! Hasn't he learned being old and stupid will cause you to be broke! These are the type of people who should not be allowed to file for bankruptcy.

Can you say Ocho broko in less than one year. Maybe he should get some financial advise from TO. They should start their own show "From Hero to Zero".
