So Donovan at work has the same problem I do, We both have a shoe fetish. Look what he found this morning, if I had the money I would definitely get involved here and own a pair of history and 1 of the rarest pairs of shoes in the world.
You can see the auction here on Ebay : http://nikemag.ebay.com/shoes
The NIKE MAG is no longer the
“greatest shoe never made.” The mythical shoe that originally captured the
imagination of audiences in Back to the Future II is being released � and
they’re here to help create a future without Parkinson’s disease.
pairs of the 2011 NIKE MAG will be auctioned on eBay with all net proceeds going
directly to The Michael J. Fox Foundation. Each day for the duration of the
ten-day auction, one hundred and fifty pairs of the 2011 NIKE MAG shoes will be
made available via eBay’s Fashion Vault. The auction starts September 8, 8:30PM
PST, and will end September 18. Thanks to a previous 50 million dollar match
given to the Michael J. Fox Foundation, all donations will be matched,
effectively doubling the contributions from the auction.
NIKE MAG was worn by the Back to the Future character Marty McFly, played by
Michael J. Fox, in the year 2015. It came alive, lit up and formed to Marty’s
foot. The 2011 NIKE MAG shoe was designed to be a precise replica of the
original from Back to the Future II. The aesthetic is an exact match, down to
the contours of the upper, the glowing LED panel and the electroluminescent NIKE
in the strap. The 2011 NIKE MAG illuminates with the pinch of the “ear” of the
high top, glowing for five hours per charge.
