Great Scott!! Nike is rolling out Marty McFly's sneakers for sale (auction) to consumers - UPDATED

According to web reports, the Nike Air Mag will be hitting shelves soon with and unveiling in the next 24 hours.  These are actual sneakers you can purchase, based on those worn by Marty McFly in "Back to the Future: Part II".   Big question: Will they be self-lacing?  Below is a trailer for the sneaker, that was hinted at in a Tweet by one of the producers of the BTTF2.  That's right there is a teaser for a SNEAKER.  If my calculations are correct when these suckers hit stores shelves in the next few months, we're gonna see some serious shit.

UPDATE: Apparently, Nike has only produced 1,500 pairs of the sneaker and is auctioning them off with proceeds benefiting the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research.  As most people know, Fox has been dealing with the disease for over a decade - so dig deep.  I myself do not think my pockets are going to be deep enough - the first pair was auction off to an unnamed buyer at $37,500.
A description of the sneaker in the press release says, "The 2011 NIKE MAG shoe was designed to be a precise replica of the original Back to the Future II. The aesthetic is an exact match, down to the contours of the upper, the glowing LED panel and the electroluminescent NIKE in the strap."  Pretty cool, but I have to pay off my student loans first.  If only I had a time machine and a Sports Almanac.  Good luck bidders.





They are legit, here is your first look:

Any idea on the cost of these sneakers? Size 13 specifically.

The eBay site is not yet live, and there is no indication as yet what the reserve price (if any) will be. According to NiceKicks.com, 1,500 pairs of the shoe will be sold on eBay.
