Nike MAG 2011 (McFly)   Release Info

The importance of October 21st, 2015, is quite comprehensible to sneakerheads around the world. While that very sequence of events in 1989 http://bttfmovie.com/” target=”_blank”>Back To The Future II was fictional. When Marty McFly (played by actor Michael J. Fox) stepped into the futuristic Nike Mag and movie going audience saw the sneakers’ auto lacing capability, that very impression imprinted on all sneakerheads’ memories collectively.

With a whirlwind of information available in the last few hours, including presentations at http://universalstudioshollywood.com” target=”_blank”>Universal Studios back lot by Tinker Hatfield and Nike CEO Mark Parker moments ago, more on the availability of Nike MAG 2011, also known as Marty McFly or Air McFly, have surfaced. As actor Michael J. Fox stroll onto the http://freshnessmag.com/2011/09/08/marty-mcfly-to-make-an-appearance-on-the-late-show-with-david-letterman/” target=”_blank”>Late Show with David Letterman later this evening, http://nike.com” target=”_blank”>Nike will will unveil an eBay charity site to auction off 1500 pairs of the Air Mag with 100% net profit going to the http://michaeljfox.org” target=”_blank”>Michael J. Fox Foundation. Furthermore, a matching donation of up to $50 million will be given by search giant http://goolge.com” target=”_blank”>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 http://nikemag.eBay.com”>nikemag.eBay.com and ends on September 18th.

ive waited 22 years for these shoes to come out and when they do there 4 thousand dollars .nike needs to make millions of pairs and sell them world wide to the public .i hope i dont have to wait another 22 years to buy these awesome shoes .i hope you guys at NIKE read this.

nike is donating all proceeds to Parkinsons research. the whole idea of "they would make just as much money if they made these available to the public" makes no sense at all. to raise that $5m from public sales would require a whole lot more resources than just 1500 pairs. they would have to make almost 350,000 pairs of these shoes and sell them at $150 a pair. so by auctioning off only $1500 pairs at whatever the public will pay means they will have a lot less resource expense to take out, which means a lot more money will be donated. nike is donating all profit to the foundation. that means they will be taking out what it cost them to make the shoes. less resources = more money donated.

The fact is that Nike wants to make 5 million dollars from auctioning them but in reality they could have made the easly if they just mad the public

@titusmark...all you do is showing social envy... in the end you have to admit that you can't blame nike for this,...i mean we live in a capitalist environment and brands like nike just take advantage of exactly this situation. ...of course you can say 'uuuh but this whole thing is for charity and this & that foundation', but it's not...it's just another advertisment to look like a 'cool brand'. this whole hype nike is creating is scheduled in detail. ...so don't blame the brand, you have to blame people like you and me for supporting a brand which exploits us and our sports (skateboarding, bmx, whatever...) and selling a cheap produced product for high prices. seriously, it's a double edged sword if there are people out there thanking nike for this... please get me right, i'm not hating, these are just some realistic facts we forget sometimes. ...if you realise that there are even for major brands different ways to operate within this system, it's simply up to you whom you give your hard earned money. i switched to new balance and their made in usa x england models for exactly that reason... i'm not a better person whatever, everyone can and should operate withis this system like he or she wants to but be sure it affects alot of things in our environment. anyway, hope this comment isn't too negative, cause it wasn't ment to be... all i want to say is buying local is a good option for all of us. just do it. :)

TitusMark, Dont be so pessimistic. Theyre being auctioned to rich people because rich people can pay more. That money is going to be matched and donated to Parkinsons Disease research. Its a noble cause. So what your message is saying to everyone is "I acknowledge the need for parkinsons research. But childish needs to wear future boots makes me feel more entitled." Stop being a child. Its a great idea. THANKS NIKE!

I believe that Nike will release another version in the near future (2012 probably) that will be available to the larger public, this is just the extremely limited 2011 (1st) edition. And hopefully by the time they get to the 2015 Nike Mag they will be sold to the public WITH power laces! I can hardly wait! At least the first step was taken! I wish that Michael J. Fox and his foundation can truly find a cure for this terrible disease!

i acknowledge the noble cause, but... by putting them up for auction, you guarantee that the only folks who can afford them are the upper class that you already give shoes out to for free. the rest of us low-income to middleclass folks will have no shot. the ironic thing is that it's those same classes that you get all your love and support from. thanks nike...thanks a lot.
