In the second film of the Back to the Future trilogy, which starts off in 2015, Michael J. Fox’s charcter Marty McFly puts on a pair of high-top Nike sneakers that lace themselves. Nike has commemorated one of the greatest movie-sneaker moments with sneakers such as the “Marty McFly” Hyperdunk. However, after a 21 year wait, we are (probably) soon going to get a look at the much-loved Nike Air Mag. In the past couple of days, various sneakerheads, such as Matt Halfhill of Nice Kicks, have been flown out to Los Angeles by Nike, and received a special invitation to a Nike event that is happening tomorrow night in LA, straight from famous sneaker designer Tinker Hatfield. In the special box came an invitation card, a Back to the Future trilogy DVD, some movie candy, and a special pair of metal shield glasses, like the pair that appeared in Back to The Future II (I believe). The theme of all of this?: “It’s about time.” In addition, a video leaked earlier tonight that portrays a whole room full of Air Mag’s. (text via Sole Camp,Pics via Highsnobiety).
