Who doesn't want a pair of the Nike Mag self-lacing sneakers like the ones Michael J. Fox finds in Back to the Future II?
We do, at least until they start making time-traveling DeLoreans again.
So we have good news...
Now you can.
Nike is auctioning off 1,500 pairs of its new 2015 2011 Nike Mag to benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation.
Sneaker aficionados have been in a tizzy ever since rumors began to swirl that Nike had plans for a Mag shoe. Especially since that new YouTube video titled "McFly's Closet" posted earlier this week by username DocEmmettBrown88. The 46-second spot shows shelves filled with dozens of pairs of—you guessed it—Nike Mag shoes.
Matt Halfhill of fanboy website Nice Kicks scored an invitation to a party tonight hosted by E!'s own Soup master Joel McHale. The invite included a DVD of the second installment of the Back to the Future franchise along with a pair of metal shield glasses like those worn by Dr. Emmett Brown (Christopher Lloyd) in the movie.
An iPod Shuffle included a message from Brown: "Welcome to Los Angeles. If my calculations are correct, over the next 24 hours you are about to see some serious s--t!"
Nice Kicks also points out that Nike registered Marty McFly Nike Air Mags last year with the U.S. Patent Office.
Perhaps hoverboards will be next.
