An American named Chris (he hides his last name for safety reasons) won the 2011 Nike MAG self-lacing sneakers from the second part of the iconic Back to the Future trilogy. It is reported by Hypebeast.
According to Chris, he took part in a charity lottery run by Nike. The purpose of the action was to provide financial assistance to the Parkinson's Disease Foundation, founded by actor Michael Jay Fox.
Chris sent only $ 50 to the Fox Foundation and did not expect to become the owner of the legendary sneakers. After the sudden win, the man posted a photo of the Nike MAG on Twitter. And those who wanted to buy shoes immediately began to write to him.
According to the lottery winner, he has not yet decided whether to sell the sneakers or keep them for himself. However, Chris did not dare to wear them around the house. “I tried to put on just one sneaker - I'm really afraid to ruin them, because I can sell them profitably,” he said.
The Nike Mag, which features the fantastic concept from the comedy Back to the Future, was officially unveiled at the end of September 2016. A special technology allows the drawcord laces to individually respond to the movements of the shoe wearer in such a way as to adapt to them and provide a comfortable wearing condition.
The most expensive pair of self-lacing sneakers was auctioned in Hong Kong for $ 104,000.
The sneakers will be on sale in late autumn.
