The Nike Mag is one of the holiest grails of all sneakers thanks to its self-lacing technology that was debuted by Marty McFly in Back to the Future Part II.
Designed by Tinker Hatfield, the shoe features self-lacing shoe-laces, blinking neon lights with a Grey/Blue color scheme.
In 2011, Nike released the Mag for the first time via action limited to 1,510 pairs exclusively through eBay and live actions at Nike stores. But that version didn’t include the “Power Laces” technology. In 2016, Nike released the first-ever lacing Nike Mag via a raffle, with all proceeds of both the 2011 and 2016 releases going to Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.
In 2018, the actual shoe from Back to the Future Part II was up for auction and has just sold for $92,100 from Shoezeum on eBay. The shoe is in an extremely fragile state with the heels completely crumbled – talk about vintage.
