The above is a YouTube comment on the video below, which apparently indicates that Nike is getting ready to break out the oft-rumored Marty McFly Nike Air Mag 2015 shoe. About a year ago, the shoe blog Nice Kicks got hold of U.S. Patent Office papers for a Nike shoe based on Mary McFly’s power-lacing shoes in Back to the Future II. Speculation was that the shoe wouldn’t come out until 2015, but Nike is making some big announcement tonight, and Nice Kicks says it’s ready to roll out the Air Mag 2015.

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!”

YouTube comment:

Does anybody know WHEN EXACTLY THESE WILL COME OUT, and HOW MUCH WILL THEY BE??? …Cause as a SNEAKER HEAD, and a BTTF NERD, i would trade ALL my JORDANS, NIKES, ADDIDAS just for ONE PAIR of Air Mag McFlys!!!!!!!!!! and i know im not the only one who would!!!! — yungluke09 1 hour ago

    Don’t care what shoes the release. It is the college football unis that are atrocious: the amateurist designs of high schoolers adorning the Oregon and Georgia football teams need to be recalled and those who thought they were a good idea need to rethink. It is odd, or maybe it isn’t, that both Oregon and Georgia lost decidedly. It was the Nike unis.
