Sneakerheads and Back to the Future fans rejoice! On “Back to the Future Day” Nike announced that they will be releasing a limited amount of the Nike Mag self-lacing shoes, as seen in Back to the Future Part II, in Spring of 2016. Michael J. Fox already has his pair, and if you’re looking to score a pair of your own you better start saving now.
The 2015 Nike Mag is a limited edition release. It will only be available via auction, with all proceeds going to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. The specific details on the auctions will be posted to Nike News and via Twitter @Nike in spring 2016.
The Nike Mag is a must-cop for any serious shoe collector. A limited amount of Nike Mag shoes were released back in September of 2011, but those models were replicas that didn’t include the self-lacing technology. That time around, the shoes looked like this:
Back then, 1,500 pairs were auctioned on eBay, as sales ranged between $2,300 and $9,959. Expect to drop some serious coin if you’re looking to cop the self-lacing version. Auction proceeds are estimated to double the amount raised for the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research back in 2011. So if you have five G’s lying around, you might have a chance at copping an odd-sized pair of these.
