Air McFly’s

This is probably the coolest shoe that will ever come out…scratch that, definitely the coolest, flyest shoe ever. Well Marty McFlyest to be exact.

From September 8-17, every day 150 pairs of the Nike Mag Back to the Future throwback shoe will be auctioned off. The shoes are a remake of the classic Nike’s that McFly wore in BTTF 2. They do light up, but unfortunately they do not come equipped with the famous power lacing feature. If you watch the video below you’ll see Doc asking about power lacing, and upset that the shoes aren’t equipped with it, goes BACK TO THE FUTURE to 2015 so he doesn’t have to bend his old butt over to lace up his kicks.

I love this idea and I love the shoe, unfortunately the auctions are fetching quite a bit for each pair. If you check Ebay, each pair is going for around 3-5 grand. Insane yes, but the bids continue to McFly in day after day. Pricey yes, but the more they end up going for the better because all the proceeds will go to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s research. So for all you thousandaires out there keep bidding.
