[ great scott! ]

in 1989, nike designer tinker hatfield was asked to design a shoe for the second chapter in the Back to the Future series. he created the power-lacing, self-illuminating, Nike MAG. 
riding on a pink hoverboard, michael j. fox made them the most famous shoe never made.
1500 pairs of the 2011 Nike MAG were made (minus power lacing). for 10 days only, 150 pairs will be auctioned off on ebay each day with all net proceeds going to the michael foundation to further parkinson’s research.
