Unboxing The Nike Mag 2011
We’re all familiar with the infinite wait for THE package to arrive. Twiddling your thumbs while compulsively checking on that tracking number online, wondering if your kicks got lost in the mail because the ‘OUT FOR DELIVERY’ update that was made at 6:37 AM hasn’t been changed, running to your window every time a car passes by, only to realize it’s a wretched school-bus filled with children or a damn Fresh Direct delivery truck. WHY DO YOU TORTURE ME, OH SNEAKER GODS?!? It’s hell. We know. We’ve been there. So imagine if you have an item scheduled to arrive – an item that is undoubtedly the best sneaker release of the year and perhaps of the last decade; the waiting period is a lot worse, but the joy from unboxing your newfound sneaker pick-up is exponentially greater. It’s here. You’re mine. Get in mah belly.
Yu-Ming Wu, founder/publisher of Sneaker News and long-time sneaker aficionado, had not one, but two pairs of the Nike Mag 2011 arrive at his door-step, and he gracefully presented us with a step-by-step unboxing of the Mags – a sinfully indulgent experience that most of us will sadly never witness. A box, inside a box, inside a box is where you’ll find the Nike Mag 2011, which also comes with a booklet of dos and don’ts (don’t wear ‘em in water, don’t try to fly like Michael) and instructions on how to light up your Mags and recharge the batteries. What makes the unboxing of the Mags that much more special? Most packages arrive in a few days. For the Mags, it took 23 years. Check out the full Nike Mag 2011 un-boxing experience below!
I mean the idea is cool, the cause is good, but really, I couldnt see myself ever wearing these, they are pretty damn ugly, especially on foot, id display them maybe ina glass box in a trophy room, but thats alli could do with them, cant see myself walking down the streets of SE DC with some light up snow boots on, just not my style, to each is own, they pulled it off well though, its a win for nike
All this just goes to show me if I had a sneaker blog with tons of ads, I could waste my money on ugly but still kinda cool kicks that light up, too.
ok so just hear me out on this one... when i was younger i always wanted this shoe. for years and years i thought what if? now for the past 2 or 3 weeks every sneaker website has been shoving this shoe down my damn throat. i cant wait till the hype on this shoe ends. because quite frankly i'm sick of it. they've completely sucked the shoe dry of all the fun it once was. thanks hype beats for killing a small part of my child hood. and for what its worth yeah id like to have a pair. who wouldn't? but damn they stuck in our face for almost a month now, let it go hype beasts let it go...
WOW!!! These are crazy nice!!! And I didn't know they had a rechargeable battery. Lol @ trying to fly like Marty Mcfly. Biff would be so jealous. LMAO
Reallly dont care much of how these shoes came in a ups box UNLESS that box is at my front door!!!!!!!!!!!!!
