There have been rumors of Nike releasing this sneaker for years now. Actually, its been decades. The infamous Air Mcfly was first introduced to sneakerheads in the 1989 film Back To The Future II (one of my favorites). A young Michael J. Fox puts on the futuristic shoes in the scene below. Finally, the Nike Air Mags aka the Air Mcflys will be available for purchase. There will be a charity auction for 1500 pairs of the exclusive kicks.
Michael J. Fox is supposed to rock sneakers on David Letterman tonight.
Auction information, more photos and video after the jump…
Nike will will unveil an eBay charity site to auction off 1500 pairs of the Air Mag with 100% net profit going to the Michael J. Fox Foundation. Furthermore, a matching donation of up to $50 million will be given by search giant Google‘s Co-Founder Sergey Brin and his wife Anne Wojcicki, a DNA specialist. The goal, as stated by Mark Parker, is the eradication of Parkinson’s Disease, which afflicts both Michael J. Fox and Brin’s late mother. The charity auction starts tonight at nikemag.eBay.com and ends on September 18th. -via FreshnessMag
