The Nike MAG is trending after it was announced that the Back to the Future Part II kicks will go on sale in a limited 1,500-unit run.
Michael J. Fox appeared on Letterman to show off the replica of the shoes he wore as Marty McFly in the 1989 film. He announced that the shoes will be sold on eBay and that all proceeds will benefit his foundation for Parkinson's disease research.
The shoes themselves are replete with tricolor LED lights as well as an electroluminescent Nike logo. Unfortunately, they do not auto-lace.
The first pair of Nike MAG's sold at an L.A. auction for $37,500.
