“1500 pairs of the 2011 NIKE MAG will be auctioned on eBay with all net proceeds going directly to The Michael J. Fox Foundation. Each day for the duration of the ten-day auction, one hundred and fifty pairs of the 2011 NIKE MAG shoes will be made available via eBay’s Fashion Vault.”
According to Nicekicks.com, “the Air Mag is the first rechargeable footwear from Nike designed as an identical replica to the originals seen in Back to the Future II. 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.”
