NIKE MAG 2011 The Nike Mag 2011 is a sneaker released in that same year styled after the pair that the character Marty McFly (played by Michael J. Fox) famously wore in Back to the Future 2. A limited run of 1,500 pairs were produced and sold exclusively on eBay, with all proceeds funding the Michael J. Fox Foundation to fight Parkinson’s Disease. The sneakers closely mimic those seen in the film, with a futuristic LED glow kit embedded in the design.

Will sneakers ever get any love in the film industry? Don’t hold your breath for a newly-minted footwear category in the Academy Awards, but some shoes definitely deserve something along the lines of a ‘Lifetime Achievement’ award. This past weekend, The Good Will Out presented the ‘Kicks On Film’ showcase – a full exhibit paying homage to the Nike Mag and its bridging the gap between kicks and movies. The Mag went from being an amazing movie-prop to one of the most celebrated sneaker releases in Nike’s history, but don’t expect the brand to stop there (Tinker hinted at another 2015 release). More of Kicks on Film below, so take a look and let us know what other sneakers deserve honorable mention.

Air Yeezy 2 + Air Mag Sneaker Hypebeast Art by ROM

hypebeast art rom Air Yeezy 2 + Air Mag Sneaker Hypebeast Art by ROM

What exactly is a hypebeast? It’s a term that’s been around for over a decade and happens to be the name of a well-respected urban culture/streetwear e-publication, but it isn’t necessarily used as a term of endearment. If anyone can remember those ‘hypebeast’ drawings from 2004 and beyond (an annual piece-by-piece detail of such an individual), you’d be well aware that a hypebeast is an uncontrollable animal feasting on whatever is ‘hot’ in materialism – mired in a cycle of ‘following’ and perhaps devoid of individual taste.

According to artist and sneaker customizer ROM The World, two sneakers that might’ve coerced the inner extreme hypebeast is the Air Yeezy 2 and the Nike Mag 2011; using his distinct style, ROM has created two awesome pieces of artwork titled the Yeezy 2 Hypebeast and Air Mag Hypebeast, in which he transforms the sneakers into rabid creatures ready to devour anything hype-worthy in sight. Do you agree with ROM’s assessment that the Mags and Yeezy 2s are the most hyped sneakers in recent memory? Check out full shots of his work below (it’s worth hypebeasting over) and let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

We may not need roads, but we’re gonna need more storage space if Nike continues to pump out these outstanding Back To The Future-inspired sneaker releases. Beginning with 2008′s Hyperdunk ‘McFly’, Nike Basketball has continued to produce these Mag-styled kicks like the Hypermax and Hyperdunk 2010, and it wasn’t until September of 2011 that Nike went all-out and created the actual Nike Mag shoe from BTTF II. Ross, a devoted reader of Sneaker News, just hit us up with his sick ‘Back To The Future’ Collection, which features all four of these amazing high-top kicks with a dope DeLorean poster acting as a back-drop. A look at this outstanding crop of McFly joints are just below, so take a look!

Nike Mag “Flux Capacitor” Customs by Mache

nike mag flux capacitor customs by mache 1 Nike Mag Flux Capacitor Customs by Mache

You can always tell that a sneaker customizer has real confidence in their work when they opt to touch up a pair that already has a good amount of inherent value rather than grabbing some outlet outtake. This all new creation from Mache is pretty much the ultimate statement in that regard, touching up the ever-so-coveted eBay only Nike Mag 2011 that was rolled out in charitable fashion just last year. The work done, commissioned by St. Louis Rams cornerback Cortland Finnegan, puts the pair even further to the mythos of the movie; with a flux capacitor design winding around and reflecting the souped up Delorean that let Marty McFly and Doc go back and forth through time on the regular. Click through with us to check out the full shots of this insane custom and let us know if you think it’s an upgrade to the Nike Mag 2011 design.

Over the past couple of weeks there has been one definitive space-age sneaker for the celebrity set, and you already know what that sneaker is. Taking it back to one of the few sneakers in recent memory that can stand up to those in terms of excitement and exclusivity is the singer/producer The-Dream rocking the Nike Mag 2011, a sneaker that swerves around the glow in the dark treatment for some straight up LED’s in the soles. The setting proved proper to show them off, with the dim stage lighting at the vitaminwater Uncapped event in LA put on by Fader letting the Nike Mag glow that much more. Click through for a photo breakdown and let us know how you think history will treat the Nike Mag 2011 vs. this year’s monumental moon boot release. Additional photo: Orisue
