Nike

We're Selling Marty McFly's

FUTURE SHOES!!!

The time has come ... Nike is FINALLY selling Marty McFly's futuristic high-tops from "Back to the Future II" ... 4 years before they're supposed to exist.

Here's the catch -- Nike is only releasing 1,500 pairs of the Nike Air Mag ... a shoe that Marty rocked in the year 2015 in the movie.

Nike has announced that all of the pairs will be auctioned on eBay ... with all of the proceeds going to the Michael J. Fox Foundation ... which helps fund research on Parkinson's Disease.

According to NiceKicks.com, the shoe contains an LED panel -- just like in the movie -- and is fully rechargeable ... with each charge fueling around 5 hours of awesomeness.

The shoes are great and all ... but seriously, WHERE THE HELL IS THE HOVERBOARD ALREADY?!

Michael J. Fox went on Letterman last night and talked about the shoe -- reminding people that the $$$ from the sale goes towards a good cause.

Hoverboards are useless. Can't use 'em over water.

Ebay? Good luck getting a fair price for them. At least some of the money is going to charity.

I'll be bidding on a pair. I'd gladly drop $1000 or more on some Marty McFly future Nike's. Wish they'd give them a wide release. I'd love to buy a pair to display and a pair to wear.

Strange looking shoes. What are these Super High Cuts? Doesn't beiber wear these?
We need the TMZ-Beiber guy to do something on this. Always worth a good laugh.
Yesterday show: haha.. Max was frig'n funny. "Dating a model" - the frumpy girls in the office look so perturbed. Hilarious. OK, not frumpy, but the woman who always slouches in the chair always looks p*ssed off.

Nike, only 1500 pairs? I've been waiting since 1989 for a pair of these and you're only making 1500? Some crappy celebrity's kid is going to end up with all the pairs and I'm going to get nothing. Consider making a full production of these.

These will NOT have automatic lacing like they had in the movie. This has been stated numerous times on sneaker websites. However they are having the shoe release again with the automatic lacing on October 21 2015 which if u have seen the movie, is the day Marty went into the future. NIKE is not stupid and knows how to market their products.

Screw the hoverboard. Where are the flying cars? The Mr. Fusion's? The '80's Cafes? And most importantly, where are the Cubs winning the World Series?

Well done Nike! But they should wait until 2015 for that extra false sense of authenticity.
