Of course with all the mass hysteria surrounding the Nike Hyperdunk 2015 a.k.a. McFly, the owner of the original full working movie prop (not a replica created by an enthusiast) is letting a half-pair go on eBay. The McFly/Hyperdunk 2015 has been beaten to death in online media world hitting every single corner, however this auction provides an interesting story as the owner of the shoe was an actual electrical technician on site at the Nike Sport Research Lab and was behind the building of the shoe. Originally created for a scene that never materialized, the Nike Mag (as seen on the heel and named for its magnetic properties) was supposed to be used in a fictional game of Slamball which is likened to 3D racquetball. As mentioned only one shoe is available and not in the best of conditions however definitely a one of a kind piece to own. Oh, worth mentioning, a photocopied sketch of the original plans by designer… yeh you guessed it Tinker Hatfield will also be provided. What HASN’T the guy done?
