Holy crap. The Nike Mag is real—and you can score one of a very limited edition of 1500 pairs starting tonight at 11:30 PM EST on eBay.
Here’s the deal—Nike has reproduced the Mags from Back To The Future and will only sell 1500 pairs off to the highest bidders. All of the proceeds will go to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinsonâ€™s Disease Research and Googleâ€˜s Co-Founder Sergey Brin will match the bids.
The shoes will be faithful reproductions of the originals, though the power lace technology will be absent since it isn’t really ready for primetime. However, the sneakers will feature LEDs and an electroluminescent Nike logo.
Gah! I am so excited about this! And if this hasn’t got you psyched enough, check out the promo videos after the break.
By the way, you might want to check out Letterman tonight as Michael J. Fox is scheduled to appear. The timing seems to suggest that there will be some sort of announcement.
That having been said, interested parties should head on over to nikemag.eBay.com at 11:30 EST to try and score a pair. Apparently, none of the shoes will ship until each pair is sold.
