“Power laces? Alright!” Marty McFly wouldn’t be so overjoyed if he knew how much those Nike “Mags” actually cost.
Online auction site Invaluable has put up an original pair from the production of Back to the Future Part II, and bidding starts at $30,000. Yeah, pretty heavy, right?
What’s more, they’re expecting the final bid to cap off around $50,000, a price tag that in some circles on eBay could actually get you up to three DeLoreans, depending on the seller you buy from. So, think about your future.
Still, these “Mags” were worn by Marty McFly himself, and as the auction insists, “These represent only the second pair of Nike Mags we have encountered and are the finer of the two.” What are you afraid of? If this thing works it’ll solve all your financial problems.
Or, you could wait until Nike delivers on their word and releases a line of self-lacing Mags themselves. After all, innovation chief Tinker Hatfield confirmed plans earlier this year to release the Nike Air MAG sometime in 2015.
But you could have them now. For only $50,000. What are you … chicken?
