Only 1500 pairs were ever made, and none of them got to the store. They all were sold on the auction with all benefits going to Michael Jordans Fox foundation for research for finding cure of Parkinson disease. Fox is a star of Back to Future, and he also has a Parkinson disease. Sneakers come with anti-gravity magnetic case, battery charger and commemorative pin.
Leading up to the release of the Nike Air Mag, a 50 million match grant was given to the Michael J. Fox Foundation by Sergey Brin and Anne Wojcicki; they will match all donations to the foundation, up to 50 million dollars, through the end of 2012. "We wanted to translate the excitement people have for the 'greatest shoe never made' and for the Back to the Future into positive action," said Mark Parker, CEO of Nike. "But the long term objective is to raise awareness so the Foundation can achieve their goal of eradicating Parkinson's disease. The Air Mag is the first rechargeable footwear from Nike were designed as an identical replica to the originals seen in the Back to the Future II movie. Some of the constant elements include the upper contours, the glowing LED panel and the electroluminescent Nike logo in the strap. The Nike Air Mag actually illuminates with the pinch of the "ear" of the high top, glowing for five hours per charge.
