Nike 'Back to the Future' Air Mag shoes are real.

Nike fills our expectations just in time for Back To The Future Day.

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

A once in a lifetime holiday happened yesterday, October 21, 2015.  It was the day Marty McFly went to the future in the second movie of the Back To The Future trilogy.  Even though life today is much different than in the movie (we don't have flying cars, and hover boards aren't mainstream), we do have the 'Back to the Future' Nike Air Mag.

The self lacing Nike Air Mag was first seen yesterday, with no other model than Marty (Michael J. Fox).  Right now Fox is the only one with a pair of these shoes, and the only release will be an auction-style charity this coming spring.  All proceeds from the limited release will go to the Michael J. Fox foundation, witch is dedicated to Parkinson's Research.
