What’s up with my Sneakerhead fam? It’s been a minute, my apologies for the short hiatus. My birthday was last month and I like to celebrate all month lol….now that all festivities are over, it’s back to business.
Today is October 21, 2015 “Back To The Future” Day. The day Doc and Marty McFly (Michael J Fox) went back in time.
In the Sneakerhead world this is a big deal because there was rumor of the Nike Air Mag releasing today. The shoe worn by Michael J Fox in the movie and is an extremely rare and expensive shoe. The shoe was once released back in 2011 to auction on ebay. The sales from the shoe totaled over 4 million dollars that all went to the Michael J Fox foundation dedicated to finding a cute for Parkinsons disease.
The thing that sets these apart from the 2011 is that this edition will have power lacing, just like in the actual movie. Could you imagine?! Having a real life power lacing shoe!! That has to be on the top 5 list of every Sneakerheads dream as far as shoes go. Not necessarily the shoe, but having a shoe that has power lacing. Either way, you see why this release has become such a big deal. Especially with there being a rumor of the shoe being obtainable by anyone with enough money.
Regardless of the price, the Sneakerhead community is in a frenzy because of tweets between Nike and Michael J Fox twitter accounts. Plus a letter posted by Michael that he received from Tinker himself.
Fact of the matter is……the Nike Air Mag with power lacing isn’t releasing today. Today is just “Back To The Future” Day and the release of the other shoe Marty wore in the movie the “Nike Bruin”
plus the NYC showcase of the Nike Air Mag, along with Michael J Fox receiving his pair and Tinkers’ letter being shared. To my knowledge the Nike Air Mag isn’t set to release until Spring 2016 and will only be available through auction, I could be wrong so don’t quote me on that. But to me it seems like a whole lot of hype prematurely, it’s fun to watch everything unfold nonetheless.
