Earlier this week, we mentioned the release of the Nike Back To The Future sneakers which we first caught a glimpse of way back in 1989 in Back to the Future II. Now all the details about how you can get a pair of Nike MAG’s have been revealed. Check out the press release below and watch the pretty awesome promo clip that goes along with it.
For 22 years they have existed only in the year 2015 on Marty McFly’s feet.
Today they finally become a reality.
Famed Nike designer Tinker Hatfield and footwear innovator Tiffany Beers have returned to recreate the footwear legend. Based on an original movie prop used in Back to the Future Part II, the 2011 Nike MAG shoes have been rebuilt to the exact specifications of the originals.
It features an electroluminescent outsole, space-age materials and a rechargeable internal battery good for 3,000 hours. And while they are not recommended for playing sports, these highly limited shoes will very likely command attention wherever they are worn.
For 10 days, 150 pairs of 2011 Nike MAG shoes will be listed on eBay. The first of the auctions begins September 8 at 11:30 p.m. EDT. All net proceeds from the auction sales of the 2011 Nike MAG shoes will go directly to The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.
We need your help today to meet the $50-million Brin Wojcicki Challenge.
Sergey Brin, co-founder of Google, and his wife Anne Wojcicki, co-founder of personal genetics company 23andMe, are matching up to $50 million in funds raised by the Foundation between now and December 31, 2012. Net proceeds from the 2011 MAG auctions on eBay will be matched, so please bid generously.
