Late Wednesday, Nike released the teaser of all teasers: A frustratingly short video called McFly’s Closet, that features shelves upon shelves full of Nike Air MAGs.
Yup, those Nike Air MAGs — the ones Marty McFly rocked in Back To The Future II!
It goes without saying, but nerds (point your fingers this way, folks) have been coveting these bad boys for years now. So are we to believe that Nike is finally ready to unleash the Air MAGs?
Well, not just yet. Nike revealed that 1,500 pairs will be auctioned off on eBay, with all proceeds going to the Michael J. Fox Foundation. In addition, Google co-founder Sergey Brin and his wife, Anne Wojcicki have pledged to match the bids up to $50 million. If you’re interested, the bidding started on Thursday night and will run through September 18! So break out the plastic; it’s for a good cause!
Now, if the McFly’s Closet video doesn’t exactly satisfy your hunger, Nike has released a cinema-quality commercial called Back For The Future:
Here’s a little bit about the shoe via NikeKicks.com:
The Air Mag is the first rechargeable footwear from Nike and were designed as an identical replica to the originals seen in the Back to the Future II movie. Some of the constant elements include the upper contours, the glowing LED panel and the electroluminescent Nike logo in the strap. The Nike Air Mag actually illuminates with the pinch of the “ear” of the high top, glowing for five hours per charge.
Only a few questions remain:
- Where are our self-adjusting “resizing” jackets?
- Where are our flying cars?
- And most importantly, where are our Hover Boards?
- Oh yeah, and when will the Chicago Cubs really win the World Series?
So while we’re still waiting for the day when we can jump on our Hover Boards and head down to the local mall to pick up our Air MAGs, we can still get laced up in some fresh shoes from any of the fine shoe retailers at KickItBack!
