Nike have actually, non-hoaxingly, put into production Marty McFly’s self-lacing shoes from Back to the Future II!
After teasing Tweets from producer Frank Marshall earlier in the week, Nike CEO Mike Parker officialy unveiled the Air Mag shoes along with the news that a limited run of 1500 will be auctioned over a 10-day period on a dedicated eBay site, with all net proceeds going to the Michael J. Fox foundation.
Fox said, "This project is exciting to me because it brings together three very passionate audiences: The Parkinson's community, the sneakerheads and The Back to the Future fans."
The shoes have arrived a few years earlier than the date Marty picks them up in the films (October 21st 2015) but we’re not complaining.
Hoverboards now, please!
