Nike Air Mag Back to the Future Sneakers



"Power laces. All right!"

The web has been buzzing over the last day with reports that Nike may finally be releasing the famed MAG shoes featured in 1989's "Back to the Future Part II."

YouTube user DocEmmetBrown88 (obviously) posted a video on Tuesday (available above) called "McFly's Closet," which features row upon row of shoes closely resembling those worn by Michael J. Fox's character, Marty McFly:

"If I didn't know any better, I'd say that looks like shelves and shelves of 2011 Nike MAG shoes," the YouTube description reads.

And last night, Nike invited Matt Halfhill at Nice Kicks to Los Angeles for "a big announcement" on Thursday. He's posted pictures of Back to the Future goodies, including metal-shield glasses and retro Pepsi, he received in his gift box.

Last October, Nice Kicks posted documents related to a patent application for Nike shoes with an automatic fastening system, battery pack and charging stand. And in June, a user posted a short video of what is described as a Back to the Future-themed commercial for Nike being filmed at a Los Angeles-area mall. So all the evidence says that this is pretty much happening.

For years, people have tried to create their own Air MAG sneakers, posting videos of their own versions of the kicks on YouTube. One person offers to convert any pair of shoes for $500.

  $4,750.00 - 7,500.00
