Every sneaker head's dream has finally come true!
1500 pairs of the Nike Mag will be auctioned on eBay with all net proceeds going directly to Michael J. Fox Foundation.
Each day for the duration of the ten-day auction, one hundred and fifty pairs of the Nike Mag will be made available via eBay’s Fashion Vault. The auction starts September 8, 2011 a, 8:30PM PST, and will end September 18. Thanks to a previous 50 million dollar match given to the Michael J. Fox Foundation, all donations will be matched, effectively doubling the contributions from the auction.
The original Nike was worn by Marty McFly in Back The Future Part II. It came alive, lit up and formed to Marty’s foot. The shoe was designed to be a precise replica of the original from the movie. 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 show illuminates with the pinch of the “ear” of the high top, glowing for five hours per charge.
I know these are going to reach some crazy prices, but it's all for a good cause.
