Earlier this year Nike announced that they will be re-releasing the Nike Air Mags inspired by the design in the 1989 Back to the Future 2 movie. Although these exact trainers had already been released in 2011 they did not include the powerlace ‘self-tying lace’ most of the money for the previous design was used to fund these self-tying laces and now all the money raised from these will be donated to fund the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.
The trainers were intended to be released on Back to the Future day 21st October 2015 which was the date when Michael J. Fox’s character Marty McFly travelled to. This release date has been postponed until early 2016.
A pair of these trainers were given to Michael J. Fox to showcase them here is a video of them:
