If you are a sneaker head over 25 you have been waiting for these your entire life! The Back to the future II NIKE MAG’s!!! c’mon! you remember the feeling you got when you saw Michael J Fox slip these on for the first time and THEY LACED THEMSELVES UP!?!?! That moment may be one of the main reasons you’re a sneaker head today! unfortunately they only plan on making 1500 of these bad boys in all there glowing futuristic glory (minus self lacing goodness) for sale on ebay with proceeds going to Michael J Foxâ€™s Parkinsonâ€™s research foundation.
It should be noted that this made not be the last we see of the MAG. We still have to wait for the â€œself-lacingâ€ and it is still not â€œ2015.â€ Think on that for a momentâ€¦
Finally asÂ Mr. Rubin made clear to us, there will be 15o pairs sold on Ebay for 10 days (bringing us to 1500 total pairs). They will be auctioned live on nikemag.ebay.com at 8:30 PST and 11:30 EST.
Expect Kanye West to buy the first 1,499. And Mattel better come out with the goddamn hoverboard next year!!!
More pics and video after the jump! (more…)
This sneaker is old. It came out in 2009, but since we are on the topic of ATCQ, Michael Rapaport’s documentary Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest, I thought I’d bring these back, for those who may not have known about them. In our roundtable discussion “Roundin’ Out: A Tribe Called Quest” participant Fresh Daily rocked a Midnight Marauders shirt. Well, these are the kicks that go with that shirt. Pretty freakin’ dope if you ask me. Thanks to KicksonFire for the cool video.
After the anticipation from the “Francesca Frigo as Mars Blackmon” promo a few months back, Playboy has finally released their top 23 Jordans ever list, complete with pin up girls and even a bit of nudity (if you decide to sign up to their cyber club) but if you just want to see how the kicks rank you can check out the gallery sans nekkidneshere.
New from Nike comes their Sky Force â€™88 Vintage model in a medium grey colorway. Comprised of an entirely suede upper, the kicks are distressed subtly in signature Nike Vintage style, complete with a pre-stained midsole. The Sky Force â€™88 is one of the more classic Nike basketball shoes â€“ a little chunkier than a Blazer but less conspicuous than the Air Force 1. Although they can be heavily reminiscent of the â€™80s when released in color-saturated models, the Sky Forces are surprisingly versatile in this monotone grey colorway. For those interested, the kicks are scheduled to drop sometime in the early fall.
