While we are all awaiting the official media debut of the Nike Mag 2011 tonight, Nike Sportswear at 21 Mercer in Lower Manhattan featured a special showcase of the shoe as well as a Delorean, fully decked out in time-travel technology with a hoverboard sitting on the passenger side. The Nike Mag 2011 was up for display beside the car as well as inside the Nike Sportswear retail store, available for public viewing. As the mystery box was opened at approximately 5:30, pedestrians walking the street as well as the handful of eager fans who waited on line at the store were treated with a nostalgic visual surprise, as the Delorean, with doors flung open, blinked with neon lights and switches while the famous Back To The Future theme music flowed from the Delorean’s sound system.

Those who waited outside the store and in front of the well-kept secret box crate were treated to a limited edition Nike Mag 2011 figurine, packaged in a yellow box with ‘Magnetic Anti Gravity’ alert label planted on the face of the box. As we reported earlier, the Nike Mag 2011 will be up for sale exclusively on eBay, with 150 pairs being sold per day for ten days. All proceeds will go to Michael J. Fox’s charity to fund Parkinson’s Disease research and awareness. Fox, who is currently in New York for a taping of The Late Show with David Letterman, will further detail the special Nike Mag 2011 project and eBay auctions during tonight’s episode.

nike air mag 03 Nike Air Mag / Marty McFlys Sneakers Finally Releasing

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.
