nike mag 2011 full story summary Nike Mag 2011   The Full Story

There is no doubt that the Nike Mag 2011 is the biggest release of the year and perhaps of the last two decades.

Kid Cudi Wins Four Nike Mag 2011 Auctions

September 12th, 2011 by | 59 comments

kid cudi nike mag 4 pairs 03 Kid Cudi Wins Four Nike Mag 2011 Auctions

During his interview on the Late Show with David Letterman, Michael J. Fox pointed out that the 1,500 pairs of the Nike Mag 2011 that will auction will bring together three major populations: the Parkinson’s community, the Back To The Future fanatics, and the sneakerheads. Kid Cudi is primarily a member of that third group as his sneaker travels as a noted connoisseur have been well documented here on Sneaker News, and the fact that he settled for not one, not two, but four pairs of the Nike Mag 2011 just proves that his sneaker fever is rather serious. Having the money of the popular hip-hop star sure does hurt either, and his recent visit to 21 Mercer to see the Mags for himself (thanks to Freshness for the heads up) only shows that he was serious bidder from the start. After the opening rounds of the Nike Mag 2011 auctions, the final prices have fallen just a bit now that the excitement is starting the ease, so if you’re ready to shell out a few thousands for your piece of Nike history and to contribute to Michael J. Fox’s charity, head to nikemag.ebay.com.

Nike Mag 2011 Launch – Day 1 Recap

September 9th, 2011 by | 14 comments

nike mag 2011 launch day 1 recap Nike Mag 2011 Launch   Day 1 Recap

The phrase “timing is key” seems to be amiss with the whole Nike Mag 2011 release. Back To The Future II took place in 1985, but was released in the year 1989, and they traveled through time to the year 2015, but the Nike Mag in 2011. Before you confuse yourself with all that math, don’t worry, because Tinker Hatfield suggested that a self-lacing version, like the one seen in BTTF 2, will be available in 2015. 1,500 pairs of the Nike Mag 2011 have been produced and 150 pairs went up for sale just last night, and we kept a keen eye on one particular pair that shot up beyond $75,000 in auction just hours after the opening bid was made. Tinie Tempah also won a live auction for a pair of the Mags, shelling out $37,500 for charity. This release just didn’t bring out all the hardcore sneakerheads, but as Michael J. Fox stated in his interview with David Letterman, it was the combination of three different populations – sneakerheads, Back To The Future fanatics, and philanthropists in the Parkinson’s community.

An initial unveiling at 21 Mercer in SoHo, NY and a media unveiling out in Los Angeles was the first look at the Nike Mag 2011 by the public, deeming this release as Nike’s best kept secrets in recent memory. Nike also put together a hilarious ‘lost’ episode of the Back To The Future saga, in which Doc Brown travels to the year 2011 and runs into Kevin Durant (doing his best Marty McFly impression) at a Nike retail store in Lone Pine Mall. As we mentioned before, 1,500 pairs will be released, with all proceeds going to charity, and Google has announced its intention to match every single dollar from the auctions up to $50 million. The Nike Mag 2011 release has proven to be Nike’s most successful charitable cause ever, unifying three distinct groups in the Nike and Parkinson’s Disease Community, and will stand as a milestone event in Nike’s lifelong history. For more information on Michael J. Fox’s charity, visit MichaelJFox.org, and to place your bid on a pair of the Nike Mags, go to www.nikemag.ebay.com.
