I can’t believe I missed out on this but last month, Nike ran a special campaign based around the Nike 2011 Air MAG shoes, which are an identical replica of Marty McPhly’s shoes from the movie, Back To The Future II. These Nike shoes are actually rechargeable because of their glowing LED panels and electroluminescent logo. Unfortunately, Nike did NOT design these shoes with auto-lacing (clearly, they didn’t bother to check Instructables, hah). On the bright side of things, the net proceeds from the campaign went to the Michael J. Fox Foundation to fight Parkinson’s disease. And since Nike only produced 1,500 pairs worldwide and they only sold them on eBay, the proceeds were very hefty (apparently, the Air MAGs were going on eBay for more than $5,000 per pair!).
After the jump, check out a skit featuring one of the cast members of SNL, NBA star Kevin Durant, and a special appearance from Doc Brown himself. Via Geekologie.
