Back to the Future and Shoe fiends rejoice!
Nike has announced that they've created the limited edition "2011 Nike Mag" shoe. This shoe, is a replica of the one from the classic movie trilogy "Back to the Future" complete with glowing logo. While maybe in the year 2015 (when the movie takes place) we will have flying cars, and all that other awesome 80's futuristic technology, for now super fans and shoe collectors alike can have the chance to purchase these bad daddies. Let's take a look, shall we?
Mmmhmmm. Not too shabby. The limited release of 1,500 pairs is available for auction on Ebay now. Bidding currently ranges anywhere from $3,000-$9,000. Bidding opened up last night and will continue through the 18th. All proceeds from this auction will go to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's disease research. Michael J. Fox has not hidden his battle with this debilitating disease, and it's great to see Nike taking a role and helping raise awareness through something that is too retro, nerdy, and awesome all at the same time.
Now...if we could only get someone to work on those hoover boards and flying cars...
