Anyone who saw Marty McFly slip his feet into a pair of Nike MAGs in Back to the Future Part II and saw them lace themselves up has probably been coveting them ever since. And now, Nike and Michael J. Fox are auctioning off 1,500 real pairs of the super sweet sneakers to benefit Parkinson’s Research.
Michael, who lives with Parkinson’s, showed off the shoes on the Late Show With David Letterman last night, and explained how the money will go even farther, as Google founder Sergey Brin will double the proceeds up to $50 million.
He also laid out how the eBay auction will attract a huge amount of people, from shoe fanatics, movie fans and those active in the Parkinson’s research community.
Nike has also released an ad starring Christopher Lloyd back in action as Dr. Emmett Brown, Saturday Night Live funnyman Bill Hader and NBA star Kevin Durant.
Check out the awesomeness in the clips! Will you take a stab at bidding on these cool sneaks?
