      nice .. I just got a $829.99 iP?d2 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 prices at places like Walmart or Bestbuy. I sold a 37″ HDTV to my boss for $600 that I only paid $78.24 for.

        It’s for a good cause. The money goes to Parkinson’s Disease Research which is what Michael J. Fox has had for a long time. So yes I am sure he would drop some money for them no matter how ugly they might be. Besides… It’s a part of history… So why not!

    Tears all over my keyboard because there’s no chance in hell I’ll be able to get my hands on them…

  2. Guest

    I’d like anyone who says they don’t have power laces to point out a source. Stop talking out your asses, fags

  3. mattp

    this is a disgrace.? these should be made readily available for all men women and children.? are we all not here, in the future, together?? everyone should wear these now.

  4. freeballer

    They gotta release these to the public eventually. I shall wait until 2015 then. At least for now they are going to a good cause.

  5. Sam

    I know I’ll probably get a lot of shit for this, but they’re just shoes with powerlaces and lights. Funny looking shoes, at that. A majority of the people who DO manage to get their hands on these probably wont even wear these. As ridiculous as they may look, shoes are for wearing, not keeping in the closet for years so others can’t get their hands on them.
    Even though they have tremendous amounts of sentimental value for everyone, they shouldn’t cost as much as they will.

    • I feel ya’…my philosophy is: “Rock ‘Em, DOn’t Rack ‘Em!” ?What is the point in owning ill shoes if the only way someone would know that is if they came over to your (not you Sam) mom’s basement and you actually took them out of the box….GTFOH!

  6. Scott

    I’m hoping the news can be either three things,1.He is cured of the disease, 2. A possible release date to more shoes being sold to the public . and 3 a Back 2 the future 4 one can only hope !? ?

    • Simplythebarber

      its confirmed that thier will be a new back2thefurture movie?Q: WHAT ELSE COMES WITH THE 2011 NIKE MAG SHOES?The 2011 NIKE MAG shoes come with a Premium Cardboard box with magnet closure system, Charger, Certificate of Authenticity, DVD (((((Back for the Future trailer)))))))), product video and interview with Tinker Hatfield), Manual and Lapel Pin.

    It’s official….I’m heartbroken…its great that the money will go to fighting the disease, but an eBay auction…really…just imagine how much money could’ve been generated toward the cause w a general public release…what a fail for the Nike brand…but they’ll heal my heart w the concords

  8. Ty

    That is total bullshit
    These bitchez couldn’t do one fuckin public release!
    I’m sure we wouldve paid the amount they were asking for
    That’s the bitch shit I’m talkin bout

    Nike air mags
    Nike air yeezy

    No. For the power-lace feature you will have to wait until 2015.

    • CORRECT.? And Read
      the fine print…the battery that operates the power laces and the
      lights…only lasts for 3000 hours if unworn. That is only 125 DAYS!!
      Rip Off.

    • Oh absolutely.? If they made these, with power laces and in different styles and colors.? Their profits and earnings would BLOW UP!!? As it stands the entire product is a rip off.

      No power laces.? Battery life of only 3000 hours (when NOT being worn) that is 125 days total.? And they are not made to be worn as everyday footwear.

    A: “…… The 2011 NIKE MAG shoes are not designed or intended for normal wear and use as footwear.”

    Obviously Nike weren’t even considering the sneakerhead community. True sneakerheads rock theirs.

  11. One pair is already up to $75,000! I hope all this money really helps. I’m looking forward to 2015 so hopefully everyone can get a pair. Prayers go out to all this with Parkinson’s.

  12. Just peep them .Thats true no?General?release?sucks yo.And as long they been working on these no Power laces .It must cost more then the 7 dollars it takes to make said shoe .The?Maloof milloners been trying to get Nike to make these .What happen to the power laces?patent??

    If anyone watched Letterman tonight and watch Fox on there, it is hard to say anything other than this is an amazing cause. ?EVERY pair will probably go for 50 grand if not more (dont believe me, check out the size 11s that are already over 75 grand). ?Thats 75 million dollars for research and lets just say they did a gr and retailed them at 300 bucks a pair thats 250,000 pairs which is insane. ?Lets not forget the guy from google is matching up to 50 million. ?I hope every pair goes six figures, not like anyone here actually thought they were getting a pair, why not root for a good cause?

  14. Serg_fon

    the 75,000?is a ebay pice. they only made a few of these. they will be realese to us (sneakerheads in 2015 we just have to wait so far they are Will Smith, Kobe,Tom Hanks ect ect?ect buyers

  15. Nes Cortez1

    I would rock these shoes!! I remember always cracking up watching this movie!! Wish they had many more movie like this<3 Micheal I pray they find a cure every might for all the disease in the world<3 It breaks my heart God Bless and I pray each pair sales for millions.

  16. Crush452003

    Wish I could buy m. And help out a good cause. But I’m not ballin like that. Just happy to make it with my family.

  17. Tom Wilsons

    I think the unofficial Nike back to the future shoe a year or two ago looked more more like what you see in the film.

  18. Honestly, good looking is something I woulnt use in context with those shoes.
    Yes they are fantastic, and something everyone would geek out about, to qoute scott pilgrim, but I would never wear them.
