From the ground up

With today being Back to the Future day, there was some speculation about a release of the famed Nike Mags, which we now know are officially called “Mags,” not “Air Mags.” Courtesy of a letter from designer Tinker Hatfield to Marty McFly himself, Michael J. Fox, we see that the real Mags will be first arriving to the man himself followed by an auction in 2016. Proceeds from the auction will be awarded to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson Research.

See Tinker’s entire letter to Fox below.

UPDATE: Michael has his Mags!

UPDATE 2: Michael tests out the Power Laces!

UPDATE 3: Michael will be on tonight’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! at 11:35 p.m. EST and likely be showing off the Nike Mags – set your DVRs!

Not NYC, not LA.
