“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. ”
1500 pairs of the 2011 NIKE MAG will be auctioned on eBay with all net proceeds going directly to The Michael J. Fox Foundation. The auctions will start tonight, September 8th at 8:30PST on nikemag.ebay.com and will end September on 18th. The 2011 NIKE MAG shoe was designed to be a precise replica of the original from Back to the Future II. The shoes look cool, features some fancy rechargeable LED lighting system.
A while ago we saw some pictures of the Nike Air PR1 in their black and turquoise colorway. Today we get to take a look at some more detailed pictures of this sneaker. Featuring a mostly black upper we can see the turquoise come in to provide some nice contrast to the sneaker.
..Nice Kicks updates us with some news that’ll have all the hardcore collectors sweating, as they unveil a look into the official patent for an automatic lacing system from Nike. The design eerily resembles the system featured within Nike’s Air Mag, Marty McFly’s sneakers in the cult film Back to the Future II. This information comes from the World Intellectual Property Organization website, with Tinker Hatfield and the designers at Nike’s Innovative Kitchen listed on the proposition. Stay tuned as we’ll surely hear more news about these between now and 2015.
