Nike is going back to the future. The sneaker maker said Thursday that it has created a limited-edition shoe based on a glowing pair that appeared in the 1989 movie “Back to the Future II.”
The 2011 Nike Mag is designed to be a replica of the fictional sneaker, including a glowing Nike name on the strap. But unlike the movie version, these shoes won’t lace themselves.
Nike is releasing 1,500 pairs of the 2011 Nike Mag sneaker for auction on eBay and will donate all proceeds to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s disease research. Fox famously played Marty McFly in the “Back to the Future” time-travel trilogy, where he wore the shoes during a visit to the year 2015.
“It hasn’t gone unnoted by us that there is something special about that shoe and, of course, the movie,” said famed Nike shoe designer Tinker Hatfield, who helped design the original shoe and worked on the latest version.
The auction is already starts on Thursday evening and will end Sept. 18.
