Nice Kicks- When Nike gives you a call at midnight, you know it’s something good. With just a few hours notice Nike flew me out to LA for “a big announcement.” When they won’t tell you what it is until you get there, you know it’s something bigger than a new colorway of Dunks. Upon arriving in the room, I found a box waiting for me with an iPod Shuffle with a personal message from Dr. Emmett Brown: “Welcome to Los Angeles. If my calculations are correct, over the next 24 hours you are about to see some SERIOUS SH*T!” Inside the box was an invite from to “IT’S ABOUT TIME…an unveiling that could change the course of time” as well as metal shield glasses. The table of goodies that included mid 80′s candy, Throwback Pepsi (forumla from 1985), and a copy of Back To The Future all but confirmed the suspicions. About a year ago we shared with you these documents of the Marty McFly Nike Air Mag shoes registered with the US Patent Office. It looks like we’re getting closer to 2015 than we thought!
I cannot fucking believe it. The most iconic shoes from my whole childhood. The kicks I have dreamed about since I was like 10 are becoming real. Granted hoverboards are so far from becoming real that blogger doesn't even consider it a real word. Shit, I'll settle for the invitation gift pack with Doc Brown's bad ass glasses and a bottle of Retro Pepsi. And I'm pretty sure I saw some of the candy where you dip the stick in the packet of pixie stick sugar.
You know these things are gonna run like $250. Especially if they have the automatic laces. Shit, the Space Jams were $175 and they were just from a movie for a little. These have been in the works for like 20 years.
Of course, if these don't have the automatic shoe laces Nike as a whole can go fuck themselves. But if they do, get at me. I will blatantly advertise the shit out of these fucking things. Get at me Nike. Let's do this.
