Due to the Nike Mag’s extremely limited nature and costly aftermarket value, many readers may not be able to get their hands on the self-lacing “Back to the Future” sneakers. But what if we said you could get a similar look at a fraction of the price?
LeBron James’ latest signature model, the Nike LeBron 14, is available now in a “2015” style that takes some rather obvious cues from the Mag. The color scheme is identical, boasting a gray upper with white accents and ice blue hits. It even features a paint-splattered midsole, erasing any doubt over this pair’s futuristic inspiration.
Further references to the Mag include branding on the insole resembling the “Back to the Future” shoe’s LED lights and a unique tag behind the tongue.
If you’re not ready to cough up the exorbitant resell price for the real Nike Mag — it’s currently selling for right around $30,000 — then you’re in luck. This Mag-inspired Nike LeBron 14 can be found now on eBay for less than its retail price ($175).
