Sneakers of the Nike Mag series with automatic fastening, which are known to all fans of the fantastic movie "Back to the Future 2", are estimated at a record amount - 104 thousand dollars. According to Dragon8 Auctions' official Twitter account, this is exactly what an anonymous collector paid for when he bought a pair of sneakers at the Hong Kong auction.
The organizers say a portion of the proceeds will be donated to a fund led by actor Michael J. Fox, which is funding research to combat Parkinson's disease. Nike released a limited edition replica of the Nike Mag sneakers from the movie "Back to the Future 2" - only 89 pairs. Some of them will be on display at future auctions in late fall 2016 in London and New York.
Recall that the main action in the movie "Back to the Future 2" takes place in 2015, where Marty McFly and Doc Brown arrive with the help of a time machine. Marty is introduced to many high-tech innovations from the future, including the auto-zip sneakers.
In 2010, Nike patented a mechanism to put this concept into practice.
