Remember this legendary scene from Back to the Future II ?
The 1989 film, which featured actor Michael J. Fox, took place in 2015-- a mere four years from now. But, according to a Nike press release, "The NIKE MAG is no longer the 'greatest shoe never made.'" That's right; 1,500 pairs of the once-fictional shoe have been manufactured and are already being auctioned on eBay, "with all net proceeds going directly to The Michael J. Fox Foundation."
Check out the awesome shoe below:
This incredible promotional product is sure to garner truckloads of new (and probably at least somewhat geeky) supporters for Fox's foundation. The hype around the shoes certainly outdoes anything that could have been accomplished by producing a Back to the Future-themed custom printed pen, for example.
To bid for the shoes, interested parties can visit Nikemag.ebay.com. But be prepared to shell out a ton of cash-- according to PC Magazine, "Each pair of Nike Mags was originally set at 99 cents, [but] buyers quickly pushed up the bids to above $2,000 per pair in just over 20 minutes."
Back to the Future fans should also check out the promotional flick below which features actor Christopher Lloyd in his role as Dr. Emmitt Brown.
And for those wondering whether or not the shoes power-lace-- according to a Nike employee, that feature won't be available until 2015.
