Marty McFly’s Hi-Tech Nikes Will Be Auctioned for Charity

More than 20 years after Back to the Future Part 2 was released, Nike has created the Nike Air Mag shoes that Michael J. Fox a.k.a. Marty McFly wore in the movie (the ones with the “power laces”).

Nike had been sending smoke signals about the impending release with the video above and an event with images that ended up the Nice Kicks blog.

Now there’s word on Mashable that 1,500 pairs of the sneakers will be auctioned off on eBay with proceeds going to the Michael J. Fox Foundation, which benefits Parkinson’s research.

The originals in the movie weren’t supposed to be created until 2015. If you get a pair, we want video of the sneakers in action.
