Is Nike Taking Us ‘Back To The Future’?

Is Nike Taking Us Back To The Future?

When Nike gives you a call at midnight, you know it’s something good. With just a few hours notice Nike flew me out to LA for “a big announcement.” When they won’t tell you what it is until you get there, you know it’s something bigger than a new colorway of Dunks.

Upon arriving in the room, I found a box waiting for me with an iPod Shuffle with a personal message from Dr. Emmett Brown:

“Welcome to Los Angeles. If my calculations are correct, over the next 24 hours you are about to see some SERIOUS SH*T!”

Inside the box was an invite from to “IT’S ABOUT TIME…an unveiling that could change the course of time” as well as metal shield glasses.

The table of goodies that included mid 80′s candy, Throwback Pepsi (forumla from 1985), and a copy of Back To The Future all but confirmed the suspicions.

About a year ago we shared with you these documents of the Marty McFly Nike Air Mag shoes registered with the US Patent Office.

It looks like we’re getting closer to 2015 than we thought!

    • ,,wow,. I just got a $829.99 iPad2 for only $103.37 and my mom got a $1499.99 HDTV for only $251.92, they are both coming with USPS tomorrow. I would be an idiot to ever pay full retail pr?ces at places like Walmart or Bestbuy. I sold a 37″ HDTV to my boss for $600 that I only paid $78.24 for.

  1. There won’t be any camping out?necessary…you probably won’t be too happy in the next few days….watch.?

  2. Even if these retail for 1000, I think I’ll do what it takes to get a pair. I’ll even cut my shoe budget for next year to get these.

    • hahahaha….this is a crazy looking shoe, i really dont know who would REALLY rock these…if i were to cop, it would be placed somewhere like art, cant see myself rockin these…

  3. IDK, kind of cool, but probably completely irrelevant for most of us. I would be shocked if they produce anything close to a 100 pair. Yeah, I just can’t see even a pair of these getting into your average sneaker heads hands. Celebrity sneaker stalker will soon be welcoming the Air Mag!? barf-

  4. These have been on my Must Cop List since the first time I saw the movie…. most of the haters are gonna be kids that didn’t grow up with the Back to the Future movies…plain and simple.

  5. This will require a major camp out. A couple weeks off school maybe. It’ll be worth it. Maybe we’ll get a hoverboard and a delorean with it.

  6. Wtf, is this Bs. Those are the most ugliest shoes i have ever seen..?
    And for some people to actually buy them ? You got no style for that matter bro…

    • I think that statement is respecfully contradictory. Because Nike might think everybody wants one, would be the exact reason they could choose to jack up the price–which sucks, because it’s exploiting the want over the need.

  7. ^ ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? l ? ? hope soooooooooooooooo

  8. Ha I thought I was the only one that liked or even remembered Crystal Pepsi.? Anyway I hope they’re in a reasonable price range…was gonna put up a price but i didn’t want Nike to see hahah

  9. Somehow, seeing the invite with the letters AB in that typeface makes me want to order a vodka on the rocks… You think I have a problem? :-)

  10. just thinking out loud here, but if they decide to release more than just the OG colorway, how sick would? a black colorway of these look?

  11. Lol at all the people thinking they’re going to be a reasonable price. Really, $88? Hilarious.?

    If these are under $1k I’m copping. But goddamn I sincerely hope they’ll be available for purchase online and can ship International. I’ll be freakin’ PISSED if I can’t get some just because I live in Australia.
    I can just imagine if they did hit here though. $1k in the US and the price would get jacked up to $2k here. *facepalm*

  12. i hope these are limited release. the value of these would be amazing. If they drop from $500 + i’m gonna skip on a few Jordan Releases next year and OG grails on my list, just to get these. its only right and once in a life time these shoes will drop ever again…as a sneaker head, its only right but to go all out.

  13. They are not to dissimlar to some of the stuff nike has been leading too anyway like the air force II which I have a pair. Those were $100+ on release so these will quite easilly be more than that. Probably twice the price of Jordans so around $500 seems a good guess.

  14. That’s tight! It would be cool to have a pair but as a parent speaking there is NO WAY I would be able to even think about being able to own a pair! But it would be the $h!t! :)

  15. Yea I heard the wont be less then a few thousand. Right now there are only one pair
    And the cost 10000

  16. Does this mean we’re one step closer to hover conversion? Man, 2015 used to seem like the future. Now its almost the present.

  17. If they can fasten themselves up with power-laces soon as you put your heel down then il sold, else its just another sales gimmick not worth the my cash.

  18. Does no one else question the fact that both products are featured mainly in back to the future 2 (aside from the glasses for all of 2 seconds at the end of part one) and the dvd that was given out was part one. C’MON PEOPLE!!!!!

  19. If you’re going to guess prices, you should probably factor in that these shoes will need the charging station with them, as seen in the patents that were filed. Just looking at those pictures, you can see its not going to be a small unit. I’d say $100 for a pair of anything above SB’s is cheap, so for this nice little kit? Its going to easily be a few bills.

  20. No way…it is not gonna sell. Maybe to crisis 40 yr olds on their way to the hair implant place or to refill their viagra…
    Wish they would bring back the high top canvas white nikes that were a more comfortable and faux designer version of converse high tops from the 80′s.

  21. LOL! If you’re a dude and you actually?plan on wearing these you need to quit. Back to the Future was ill, but these are?strictly a collector’s cop.?

  22. You will be able to buy an actual delorian for what these shoes are gonna cost you. All the money they spent on annoucing their presence should be a clue…

  23. Great Tax write off Nike!! Oprah gives away trips, and cars for her
    Audience and Nike raises a Billion for the sick people, for releasing a
    sneaker that every “Great -Scott” Sneaker heads wants that was born in
    the early 80′s!!!? Juss? “Amazing!!!” in my Doc Voice!!….lol…smh!!!?

  24. THIS MAKES ME SICK THAT PEOPLE LIKE Y GET THE FREE STUFF AND THE FANS DON’T THIS IS BS WHAT MAKES YOU ANY BETTER THAN US HUH .WE ARE THE ONES WHO MADE THAT MOVIE POPULAR NOT YOU BS?

  26. its disgusting. the prices are in the range of thousands already (on Ebay). Come on Nike this is very disappointing.

  27. Aint none of us gettin these.? They already on ebay goin for 3300 and? up.? Maybe some chinese knockoffs,? Id still rock the knock offs?? lol

  28. Why hate? Good lord, no wonder our coutry sucks! All they doing is having some fun, putting
    Out some “vintage future ” shoes. Who cares what u worthless assclowns think?! Keep ur negativity to yourself. These shoes are awesome for people who love these movies!

  29. Insane shoes, selling between $4,500 and near $10k on eBay. And your not even supposed to actually wear them. Hold out for the auto-lace version in 2015.

  30. I already got a pair back in 85 when me and M J Fox slipped off the set in the delorian and went to 2017 when they reissued them for mega cheap, so suck on eggs!!!!
