From the ground up

Looking for details? Here’s another look at the new Nike MAG sneakers. We focus in on the details that will make the MAG some of the most sought after sneakers of the year. The glowing LED panel is there as is the electroluminescent NIKE logo on the strap. The foam support in the ankle and toe box have been increased for comfort which differs from the original in the “Back to the Future” movie.

The MAG is illuminated by pinching the “ear’ of the high top. The feature itself makes it the first rechargeable footwear from Nike. Each shoe holds a five hour charge.

As well, it should be noted that this made not be the last we see of the MAG. We still have to wait for the “self-lacing” and it is still not “2015.” Think on that for a moment…

Finally as Mr. Rubin made clear to us, there will be 150 pairs sold on Ebay for 10 days (bringing us to 1500 total pairs). They will be auctioned live on at 8:30 PST and 11:30 EST.
