Chad Johnson

I Dropped $8,000

on Marty McFly Shoes!!

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.

And years from now, when his career has dried up, we'll be reading about how broke he is. Don't these dumbasses now how to invest or just save their money?

Let's see...he's unemployed and is losing (or has lost) his condo to foreclosure; sure seems like a smart way to spend $8,000.
