Nike is auctioning 1,500 pairs of the sneakers on Ebay from September 8 to 18, 2011 and the net proceeds from the sales will go to the Michael J. Fox Foundation which is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease. The sneakers are based on the ones that Marty McFly wore in the ‘Back to the Future 2′ movie.
Photographs of the ‘Back to the Future’ shoes from Nike’s site are shown below. The lights built into the heel and sole of the sneaker come from electroluminescent LEDs and require a charge when depleted – a power adapter is included with every pair of shoes.
