Nike has been teasing the release of Nike MAG since 2011. However, the shoes at that time did not feature the self-fastening power laces which are one of the shoe most prominent features in the film.

During that time, a total of 1,500 pairs were auctioned on eBay in order to raise money for The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s disease research, Business Insider reports.
Aside for the power laces, the Nike MAG shoes also feature an electroluminescent out-sole, space age materials, and a rechargeable internal battery good for 3,000 hours which is the first for Nike.
