Nika MAG. The future has come

After 25 years of “Back to the Future 2” release date, Nike shocked the sneakerworld with it’s futuristic Nike MAG design, the real copy of the futuristic shoes worn by Marty McFly. Only 1,500 thousand pairs are available exclusively through eBay, with a price between 2,000 and 3,000 USD per pair. The money will be donated to Michael J. Fox Foundations of Parkinson Research.

The MAGs are designed after the ones showed in the movie, however, they miss a neat self-lacing feature which astonished millions of people who watched the movie. Previously, it was planned to bring Nike MAGs into the market by 2015, but obviously Nike decided to make such a nice surprise for all the movie fans.
