Nike Mag Sneaker From 1989 Film Set Sells for 90K

first_img Star Wars x Adidas Ultraboost Photos Have LeakedBest Sneakers of Summer 2019 Great Scott! A single Nike Mag sneaker from Back to the Future II sold online for a whopping $92,100.The OG self-lacing shoe—one of only a handful made for the 1989 film—launched a bidding war between 220 sneakerheads.One lucky (and well-heeled) winner is now the proud owner of a disintegrating high top, cracked and crumbling after nearly 30 years. (That’s actually a pile of decayed rubber heeling, not scraps of someone’s lunch, as I initially thought.)AdChoices广告Anyone who outbid 220 people and paid more than $90K for a lone sneaker is not dumb enough to actually attempt to wear the deteriorating relic. (Oh, dear God, please tell me they’re not that stupid.) This work of art should live out its dying days behind glass, inciting jealousy in all who view it.As reported by Sole Collector, eBay seller shoezeum hosted the auction after securing the sneaker from the personal collection of a longtime Nike employee.There is no word on whether the film’s star—a young and ever-adorable Michael J. Fox—actually wore this specific boot. While the Nike Swoosh and triangular cutouts are just about right, the strap curiously crosses the laces; Marty McFly’s kicks featured a strap at the top, around the ankle.Check out more detailed images of the sneaker below.In 2011, Nike auctioned 1,500 pairs of replica Mags (which light up but don’t have self-tying laces), raising funds for Fox’s charity dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease.The formerly fictional footwear, however, became a reality a couple of years ago, when Nike made a working pair of self-lacing sneaks, auctioned off in Hong Kong. The shoes (a full pair) sold for $104,000—a world record.The manufacturer in 2016 released the Nike Hyperadapt 1.0—legitimate self-lacing shoes.This modern adaptation is the most high-tech pair of shoes any sportswear company has developed; not just a gimmick, the sneakers feature advanced athletic technology, and require a power source.View as: One Page Slides1.
