Nike Air MAG Sneakers: The Full Monty

 |  |  |  |  |  |  September 8, 2011


Well, I was pretty excited earlier when I read all about the new Nike Air MAGs, the Marty McFly sneakers from Back to the Future II, but now that Nike has revealed the full details about the Air MAGs, I’m sad to report that they won’t feature functional power-laces.

The new Nike Air MAGs will sport glowing LEDs and an electroluminescent ‘Nike’ on the straps. All of these will glow for 5 hours per charge. There will only be 1,500 pairs available, which is even sadder. All of them will be auctioned off on eBay, with all of the proceeds going to the Michael J. Fox Foundation to fight Parkinson’s disease.

The auctions start at 11:30ET from September 8th to the 18th, and needless to say that I won’t be bidding. I expect them to fetch a pretty penny, as there are a lot of sneaker-obsessed Back to the Future fans out there.
