When it comes to grails, very few pairs come close to the Nike Mag, the legendary auto-lacing sneaker that proved all things science-fiction can one day be made reality.
Featured in the film Back To The Future 2 and worn by lead character Marty Mcfly, the sneaker features a grey and blue colourway alongside an auto self-lacing system.
The 1989 shoe, which was designed by iconic Nike designer Tinker Hatfield for the year 2015, was way ahead of its time, and despite new releases of actual self-lacing pairs, the original one that started it all is arguably the most coveted pair there is.
This exact original pair of the Mags which is used from the film is up for an auction on eBay by Shoezeum and is currently bidding at US$17,000. An auction last November saw the pair’s price tag rise up to US$200,000.
This time around, however, the shoes will only be available for an in-person pick up at the Portland area in the US.
The original pair is in a very fragile state, with the heels being broken into pieces. Check out below.
