“Something big is coming soon,” Back To The Future producer Frank Marshall Tweeted yesterday, “Can’t say anything yet. No one should know too much about their own destiny.”
The mystery was soon solved by sneaker blog Nice Kicks, which revealed that Nike is planning a special Back to the Future themed unveiling to take place tonight.
Soon thereafter, Marshall followed up with another tweet that read, “Going to need a lot of hover boards,” with a link to the video below, showing off racks and racks of the futuristic shoe design. For those that have not seen Back to the Future II, here is a short clip of the Nikes with power laces.
The Nike MAG ($TBD) shoe won’t feature power-lacing, but they will sport glowing LEDs and an electroluminescent “Nike” in the strap, all glowing for around five hours per charge.
Only 1,500 pairs of the Nike MAG will be available and they’ll all be auctioned off on eBay with all proceeds going to the Michael J. Fox Foundation to help fight Parkinson’s disease. The first of the auctions start tonight at 11:30 ET and will run through September 18th.
Update: The first pair of Back to the Future Marty McFly Nike shoes sell for $37,500. Read about it HERE.
