Bringing Back to the Future into the Future! By Jerika

I remember reading this article in SNEAKER FREAKER about Marty Mcflys iconic NIKE sneakers in BACK TO THE FUTURE 11 ... I am a HUGE fan of the movies and the whole culture behind it so i was amazingly exited and happy to hear that The NIKE MAG would no longer be the "greatest shoe never made."

1500 pairs of the mythical shoe that originally captured the imagination of audiences 2011 NIKE MAG was 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 were being made available via eBay's Fashion Vault. The auction started September 8 and ended September 18.

The original 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.
