'It's about time': Nike's limited-edition BTTF sneakers


4:30 PM on 09.09.2011



The wonderful Back to the Future series has been receiving a welcome renaissance over the last few years. With its 25th Anniversary passing by -- commemorated with a Blu-ray collection -- and the welcome addition to the story through Telltale's episodic puzzle adventure, now Nike is releasing a replica of the infamous shoes from the second movie.

They're called the 2011 Nike MAG, and are now available as a limited-edition item on eBay as part of a special auction for the Michael J. Fox Foundation For Parkinson's Research. The ten-day auction started on September 8th. However, being a limited-edition shoe of such an iconic film prop, the auctions so far have amassed on average a crazy $5,000 per pair.

Though many of us won't be able to afford that, Nike confirmed that another version, complete with the trademark "power laces," will be coming in 2015. Whether or not they'll be as spectacular remains to be seen.

In the meantime, enjoy the classy short film above, and a special message from Marty McFly himself -- the one and only Michael J. Fox.

Limited run, 20th anniversary PS4 is a PS1 throwback

Just for a second I thought this was colored like the silver PS2 I always thought was kind of sucky (or the recent Dragon Quest PS4), and then I saw those PlayStation Japan live stream pictures (via Kotaku) with that ma...more

Splatoon might just be Nintendo's most promising new game

When Nintendo announced its wacky four-on-four shooter Splatoon at E3, I thought it looked cool -- spraying ink on the battlefield and then swimming around in said ink is cool -- but I didn't freak out like some people. Havi...more

Shovel Knight looks great in 16-bit, Aegis Defenders just looks great

Oh my goooddd. How did I miss this until now? It's like a Nausicaa game. Thank you sir Shovel Knight for making a cross over appearance (above) in Aegis Defenders, which is how it came to my attention.  The Kickstarter already passed its initial funding goal and its PS4 stretch goal. Local co-op and a Wii U version are up next. Here's hoping. This looks amazing. more
