So with all that is happening in fashion it wouldn’t be  cliché that we are taking it “Back to the Future“…. If you havent seen the movie you have missed out on an essential piece of childhood. In the movie Marty McFly travels to the future…. 2015 to be exact and while there he needs to play the part so he has to dress to impress. Here is where the Nike Mag sneaker comes into play. The movie shows Marty McFly played by Micheal J. Fox putting on the sneakers which activates and the power lace tightens making no need for tying shoe laces, to add to the effect the shoes light up in a cool futuristic blue… As a kid everyone wished they had a pair!

Flash forward to our present day Nike will be issuing the Nike Mag sneaker exclusively on-line through E-bay where many hopeful buyers will have their chance of owning a pair.  There is a limited quantity of 1,500 being sold. Unfortunately there is no powered lace however the sneakers will light up for up to 5 hours powered by rechargeable  LED lights. The sneakers are rumored to be sold at a whomping $5000 a pair!!!! All proceeds will go to the Micheal J. Fox foundation….

Which of my sneaker heads will take the plunge on these pricey kicks????

    I can’t imagine going back to light up LA Gears, especially not at $5000.00. Hmm, I think I can see Kanye rocking these.
