The last day of Nike Mag 2011 auction. You still have a chance to cop a pair of these instant classics. The prices have settled a bit since the first day of auction and you can now get yours for a mere sum of 3000 USD (or even less). Even celebrities like Kanye West and MLB pitcher Brian Wilson (of the San Francisco Giants) have been spotted rocking the shoes. But these people can easily afford the 10k USD shoes. I read that Wilson actually bought two pairs of which one is in use where as other remains in ice.
But what about the story behind the shoe? I shared some of the background before, but there is so much more to this shoe than the movie and web forums can tell. In the below video, the minds behind the shoe tell the story of the Nike Mag 2011 as it should be told. Although the idea was damn cool, I bet even the team could not have imagined how popular the shoe will actually become.
I am sure the shoes just like the movies will continue to inspire people from all fronts. Below just one example of the influence this release has had. A very cool billboard by Brent Rollins for Undefeated.
I have a sudden urge to actually bid for the shoes, but I guess I won’t go about doing this to retain the domestic peace. However if you have some cash at hand, maybe it’s a good time to invest in shoes that take you Back to the Future…
