Bust out your fastest hoverboard and reinsert "Great Scott!" back into your vocabulary, because Nike is paying homage to Back to the Future by reportedly releasing the Air Mag sneaker to the public.
According to TheShoeGame.com, 1,500 pairs of the 2011 Nike MAG will be auctioned on eBay with all net proceeds going directly to The Michael J. Fox Foundation, starting Sept. 8 at 8:30 p.m. PST, and will end Sept. 18.
"The original Nike MAG was worn by the Back to the Future character Marty McFly, played by Michael J. Fox, in the year 2015," G-Roc from TheShoeGame writes. "It came alive, lit up and formed to Marty's foot. The Nike MAG shoe was designed to be a precise replica of the original from Back to the Future II. The aesthetic is an exact match, down to the contours of the upper, the glowing LED panel and the electroluminescent Nike in the strap. The Nike MAG illuminates with the pinch of the 'ear' of the high top, glowing for five hours per charge."
In case you forgot, they're really, really ugly, but really, really awesome, as seen in the videos below.

"After my situation happened, I turned on the TV, and the first words out his mouth was 'sad and disappointing.' I'm like, forget support — how about some concern? I did just have a bullet in my leg. And then I sat in his office, and he pushed back his chair and goes, 'I'm glad you didn't kill anybody!' Man, we're paid too much to be treated like kids. He doesn't realize that we're grown men and actually have kids of our own."

Your incredible Bon Jovi reference doesn't make up for your poor attitude, Sox fan! But it's Friday and it happens to be one of the best Jovi jams ever, so we'll give you some Twitter love. Can anyone ship me a copy of Young Guns II?
