Nike MAGs - Back from the Future

After years of Back to the Future fans begging Nike to release the iconic Nike MAG (Magnetic Anti-Gravity) shoe that Marty McFly sported in the second Back to the Future film. The news was announced September 8th but I only discovered this past weekend when I saw Kid Cudi on Conan O'Brian. While I think the shoes are kind of hideous, all the proceeds of the 1,500 pairs that were made available for auction via eBay go to a good cause, The Micheal J. Fox Foundation. And let's be honest, I've never been much of a sneaker connoisseur.

The auction ended September 18th, thanks to celebrities like Kid Cudi (who now owns four pairs) spending 30k for their own private piece of the "Future;" but you still have a chance to collect a MAG of your own, Nike made both a ceramic replica of the shoe and a Nike MAG pin. For Canadians who may want a piece of history, or the "Future" you'll have to travel south of the border.
