|mcfly2015.com - Did they make it happen?|
I bet the guys from the McFly2015.com campaign from back in 2007-2008 are crying right now. Tears of joy of course. Why? Because The Shoes are real. There was a campaign/petition back a few years ago started by the Maloof brothers (out of Montreal??). Don't know where that went, nor what happened to them, but today Nike came through in realizing their dream. Flurry of activity on the net after a mysterious video showing an animation of a room of shelves of the shoes appeared on YouTube.

And all the sneaker freaks out there? A tear and some drool too no doubt. The ultimate retro/sought after/dreamt about shoe item of all time probably?

NiceKicks.com has been on top of it all day and has some good pics and previews of Mr. Michael J. Fox unveiling the shoe on Letterman later tonight. http://www.nicekicks.com/2011/09/nike-air-mag-officially-unveiled/ An auction and tons of proceeds to his Parkinson's foundation reported. That's great. What's next? Mattel and the hoverboard most would say. It's not even 2015 yet.
