Back in the day, we spoke about Nick Young wanting to hoop in a pair of Nike Air Mags. That hasn't happened yet and if he signs with adidas, that may never happen. But if the Air Mags release, that may happen. October 21, 2015 is the date that Marty McFly, the character played by Michael J. Fox in the Back to the Future trilogy.
It doesn't help that Nike has teased fans with this tweet:
.@realmikefox see you tomorrow.— Nike (@Nike) October 21, 2015
In case they do drop, it's expected to be at 4:29 PM PST (the exact time Marty travels to). Nike has been incredibly secretive and nothing has surfaced until this tweet. With that, they have singlehandedly created a buzz with one name and three words.
In 2011, 1510 pairs were produced without the movie's Power Lacing feature. They were auctioned off and the proceeds were donated to the Michael J. Fox Foundation For Parkinson's Research. The actor suffers from the disorder himself. The disorder affects the central nervous system which affects movement and creates one to tremor.
Sneaker enthusiast, Jacques Slade created a video with everything someone needs to know about the Air Mags. From the background to his thoughts, it's entertaining all done within six minutes:
With all this hoopla and hype, these have to drop or else the community will be disappointed. The let down would be massive.
