Nike Air Mag shoes, 1,500 pairs of them, will be auctioned on eBay from Sept. 8, 8:30 p.m. PST until Sept. 18.

The shoes, dubbed the 'greatest shoe never made,' made its big screen debut in the 1989 movie Back to the Future II. The shoes were worn by main character Marty McFly, played by actor Michael J. Fox, in scenes showing events in the future year of 2015.

In the movie, the shoes lit up and wrapped themselves to McFly's feet.

The 2011 Nike Air Mag shoes will not be self-wrapping.

However, it does have lights that glow for five hours per charge. It's also a precise replica of the original from Back to the Future II and the aesthetic is an exact match, down to the contours of the upper, the glowing LED panel and the electroluminescent NIKE in the strap.

Why was the Nike Air Mag released in 2011 and not 2015?

The Michael J. Fox Foundation, which funds research for Parkinson's disease, received a $50 million match grant Sergey Brin and Anne Wojcicki for funds raised by the end of 2012, which explains their hurry.

The mythical shoe that originally captured the imagination of audiences in Back to the Future II is being released - and they're here to help create a future without Parkinson's disease, state Nike's Web site.
