The shoes first made an appearance in 1989 in Robert Zemeckis sci-fi hit 'Back To The Future' worn by Michael J. Fox's character Marty McFly. Since then, we longed for the day they would be recreated by Nike.
It wasn't a reality until brothers Mickey and Charles Maloof started a petition to influence Nike to do just that.
By 2006 the construction had begun and a realistic model of the futuristic silhouette with similar features seen on the movie was officially released 8 September, 2011.
Only 1,500 pairs were ever released and nike auctioned off the highly coveted sneaker with all proceeds going towards the Michael J. Fox Foundation to find a cure for Parkinson's Disease.
Nike Air Mags have become an aspired addition to any sneakerhead's collection and are usually only available via resell.
