Update: TODAY IS THE LAST DAY TO BID!
The race for the Nike Mag has officially begun, as the first wave of this charity-driven sneaker release just became available at 11:30 PM EST. Since it’s sudden introduction late last night, Sneaker News has kept you on top of all the Nike Mag 2011 release information and updates, but the only thing that hasn’t been set in stone is the actual price. That’s because in an auction, an item with a selling price directly proportional to the demand, so prepare yourself to shell out at somewhere in the four-figures as some pairs have eclipsed $75,000. The Nike Mag 2011 release will not only bring out hardcore sneakerheads, but movie buffs, 80’s babies, and Marty McFly geeks, so expect quite a battle because the field of opponents is a lot bigger than your typical eBay sneaker auction. Google co-founder Sergey Brin and wife Anne Wojcicki generously donated a 50 million dollar match grant to the Michael J. Fox Foundation, through the match grant, the foundation can potentially receive up to 100 million dollars to fight Parkinson’s Disease. Let us know if you’ll put in bids on these auctions, and if you’re ready to throw down on the first round of Nike Mag 2011s, head to nikemag.ebay.com.

this isnt shit for a good cause. if nike spent just 2% of there earnings For last month it surely would out gross all earnings for this charity. this is a way for nike to promote itself by using consumers to earn excess for a charity. im not flattered.
These shoes are going for stupid paper. I really would like to know who is actually buying them because not everyone has 50grand plus sitting around... Someone should try and finance these! ROFLMAO.
I started a video petition on my YouTube channel FreddyTV for the 2011 Nike Mags. Swing by and participate. These shoes need to be released to the public!
Im a hard core head but im not dropping that type of money on my favorite kicks. Its for a good cause but at what price?
I dont get how people are willing to spend that much money on a shoe NIKE payed about 15$ toma n china.. or some cheap labor country thats kind of messed up.. i mean if you have the money go ahead but the real snakerheads wont be able to get em cuz they cant afford em.. maybe some can though
NIKE dropped the ball on these by :1 making them auction only 2.making only 1500(wouldve made 2015). but with that said, these are hot just because they really do come close or damn near exact to the back to the future 2 film. to bad they not power laced, but man if i can get a pair i would in a heart beat. but these are for the super rich or those who have 10-80k to spend without worrying about rent or car note next month
THIS IS SOME COSTUME BULLSHIT...THAT LOOKS SILLY A HELL WITH JEANS ON!!! NIKE YOU MIGHT AS WELL BRING THE NIKE " AIR PRESSURE" PUMP BACK OUT FOR THE KIDS WHO REALLY OUR SNEAKER HEADS LIKE MYSELF... BTW CHARITY OR NO CHARITY ANYTHING OVER $150-200 FOR A PAIR OF KICK MADE OF PVC AND RUBBER YOUR CRAZY AS SHIT. DONT GET ME WRONG THIS IS A GREAT CHARITY TO SUPPORT, BUT SHIT YOUR ROBBING US WITHOUT A PISTOL IN THE DAY LIGHT. NIKE IT TIME TO SHOW YOUR CUSTOMERS LOVE ON SHOE PRICES & BRING BACK THE ORIGINAL QUALITY TEXTILES FOR THE KICKS LIKE BACK IN THE DAY...THATS WHEN YOU WERE REALLY THE BEST!!! just being honest....
I think a lot of corporations will buy these for big bucks, then give them away in raffles and promos. They'll filter down to be awarded to plebs... eventually.
I agree how about doing aids charitys or charitys for poverty strickin naborhoods in America or even a charity for familys who loose love ones at war. Mike j Fox is suffering from a horrible disease but the prices for these shoes r stupid high. Thanks Nike for ruinig a good thing!!!!!!!!!
I have to say, tinker hatfield is a hell of a shoe creator. He had to make a shoe of the future back in 1989 for 2015. Its almost 2015, but these look like they are the shoes for 2050!! tinker made a design way past the future!
This is what happens when an article is written too soon. None of these when for anywhere near 75K. Starting auction hype and fraudulent bidders pushed the initial numbers to astronomical heights. Once the auctions were said and done, the most expensive barely topped 10K. Huge difference... HUGE.
If these are going at 75k without the power laces... I cant imagine the prices when they do have the power laces... Scary!
Honestly if i had cash to shell out like that id buy a pair i mean its goin to a good cause i know a couple people with Parkinson's disease and what they are doing is a good idea good luck to the people actually buying them.
Now looking at it, I think 75000 was typo: 7500 WAS the price. Ebay sometimes do that. But still, that is a crazy price. Maybe resell will be 75k lol.
hey its great that its going to parkinsons disease but there are much bigger diseases in the world then parkinsons, lets be real. and any dumbass who pays 75k$ for a shoe....just gtfo...imma rob a nigga fa these thats the only way ull see me rockin em
Yo...this joint looks like the wack as muska skytop got raped by the cat in the hat boots, and the skytop had the baby. I want everyone that likes this monstrosity to post a pic of them self cause you got to be a nerd. Playa you wouldn't catch a rude boy shotta dead in deez joints man. thats word.....
i feel yea... i paid 2200 in a size 13... its 200 more then i wanted to go but i got them & dumb satisfied
MJ Fox been around Hollywood a long time man, trust me there are a lot of folks with very long paper bidding on these.
lol I know, I was like maybe if I sell a few shoes... I'd have to sell a house or a few cars to afford them
