The Nike MAG - Shoes from the Future

As a kid I always wanted to be Marty McFly. He could play guitar. He drove a Delorean. He had some mean skateboard skills. He was clumsy and his pride got the best of him. But at 88 miles an hour he could travel through time.

And he got the coolest shoes never made.

In Back to the Future II, Doc and Marty go to 2015. In the process, Marty found the greatest shoes ever made. And in 1989, they were the hottest shoe that no one could have. Two years ago, Nike created 350 McFly Hyperdunks to satisfy the demand for the futuristic high tops. On Ebay, you will be lucky if you get them for a couple thousand USD. They are pretty sweet but not quite the perfect copy.

Now Nike has put out the MAG: the recreation of the coolest shoe ever. Although they lack the power laces, these might just be the coolest shoes of all time. The outer sole has rechargeable LED panels so you can always stay lit up. The Nike logo on the front strap stays lit up too. All proceeds from the eBay auctions will go to the Michael J. Fox Foundation to help eliminate Parkinson’s Disease. Google founder Sergey Brin will match all donations as well.

Buy them here if you want to have the ultimate talking point on the planet. Go ahead. Blow your savings. Or tell your significant other to prove their love to you.
