In 1989, Back To The Future II was released – a sequel to the iconic original that concluded its story with Marty McFly and Doc Brown returning to an alternate life in present day 1985. In contrast with the original film, Back The The Future II focused on moving forward in time – October 21st, 2015 to be exact – when Marty must save his future children. In this futuristic world, Marty encounters some new and improved gadgets, like the hovering skateboard and the Nike Mag – a state of the art Nike sneaker that featured a hands-free self-lacing system. The Nike Mag is considered to be one of the most memorable figments of the entire Back The The Future saga and continues to maintain its significance in Nike archives despite it not even being a real shoe! Well, things are about to change…
The Nike Mag has continually been a ‘tease’ for devotees of the Swoosh and of the popular film trilogy, with sneakers like the Nike Hyperdunk and Nike Hyperdunk 2010 being released in ‘McFly’ form. More recently, Nike 6.0 released a ‘Delorean’ edition of the Dunk SE, which featured a one-piece upper in tonal metallic silver, set to mimic the famous Delorean time machine. Well enough beating around the bush: the Nike Air Mag, Marty McFly’s sneakers from BTTF II, will finally release this year, and apparently Doc Brown traveled forward in time and created a YouTube account to give us a look into a private room with shelves packed with thousands of pairs of the Mag. Continue reading for the video as well as some stills and be sure to stick with Sneaker News for what is one of the most exciting sneaker releases in history.
Im not going to get excited until I get a release date. Once a release date drops...............Im buying as many as that establishment allows
These better be going for a FIXED PRICE and not an auction, cos that just isn't fair. Normal people deserve these shoes, not just celebs and fat businessmen's spoiled children.
This is a BullShot, I'm not denying that this shoe don't exist but what is showing here is clever use of CG. It's no way that they would have over 2k shoes sitting in a wharehose all powered up and draining the battery when they won't come out for another year or two.
BAD F!@#$%G NEWS NIKE CEO MIKE PARKER JUST LETS US NOW THAT THIS WILL BE A 1500 PAIR RUN TO BE ACTIUON IN EBAY FOR M FOX FOUNDATION. !@#$%^ YOU NIKE!!!!!!

If you have anything bad to say about any 3 BTF'S Or These Shoes Kill Yaself, That's Means Don't Even Compair Them Like We Do Retros Just Sit Back And Enjoy This Till Nike Puts Them On Some Retailers Wall.......ok hypebeast you may continue what you were doin
i am a real OG sneakerhead from way back and its always been a dream of mine to get a pair of these ever since i seen them when the movie first came out !!!!!!!!!!!!! god has finally responed !!!!!!!!............................................peace23
Man i need these man! Ima big BTTF Fan and a REAL sneakerhead... i'll pass up on the BLK Cement 3s AND the Concord 11s for this shoe... ima be broke as all get out but for something so groundbreaking as these... its WORTH it.
I guess it's just me, but that video looks kind of suspect, on some pixar animation sh--... Here's hoping I'm wrong.
Not only will this change the game of SNEAKERS... this is gonna change the game of the FUTURE... Im willing to pass up on the BLK CEMENT 3s ANDDDD the CONCORD 11s for this shoe. it would mean the world to me especially since im a big BTTF FAN and REAL Sneakerhead.
Did anybody notice the RED numbers at the 4 corners at the toward the end of the video. Just maybe Nike is trying to say something with those #'s????
WHAT ABOUT THE FUCKING BOX OR CAPSULE THING??? THAT THE SHOE COMES OUT FROM?? YOU CANT PUT THESE BABIES ON THOSE WHEAT COLOR SHITTY NIKE BOX!!!!
Really!!! This is some fake uly ass kicks. Theres a other company that has it down pack to much like the movie one. These high tops go all the way up to the top of your caves. Looks like a fake promotion too. Wake up people can't you see it.
now nike is just being super greedy now. Yeezy 2s, DB4s, concords, blk cements, zoom rookies, last shot 14s etc.,,with all this heat droppin late this year u cant possibly tell me that nike couldnt wait until 2015 and release em properly. i cant front, imma copp cuz they are grail status but a dudes wallet gon be lookin anorexic come january smh
Please Nike...Have them come with that Sports Bag..How else can we re-charge these?... Im sure retail on these will be $450-$500... CANT WAIT!
Idiots. You don't have to be an 80's baby to deserve this. I was born in 1990, I grew up watching the BTTF trilogy over and over, and not because of the shoes. Does that mean I don't deserve paraphernalia from my favorite movie series ever? NO.
wow these are hideous and they go up to your knee, really people are willing to pay top dollar for this? i can respect its different but wtf. looks like a huarache on crack from the future. if i see anyone wearing these im gonna make fun of them, REGARDLESS let the HYPE COMMENCE!!!!!!!!!!
This right here was the ENTIRE reason I got into sneakers. From the moment I saw these on film back in '89, I've been a sneakerhead. I would give away every last pair of everything I have for a pair of these...weeell, this and the cement IVs, but that's it. lol. Tinker Hatfield is a design GENIUS.
Ur probably the type of guy who gets NO pussy, and has NO kind of HEAT, whatsover... thats gets OFF on BASHING shit u CANT AFFORD...
