Here's an alternative to the alternative....
Yeah I'm going to grab a pair. I can look past them not being marked and hopefully since they are official they are better quality than the imports. If not then being out $100 is better than being out over $200.
Could Nike mag letters be made out of urethane or something and then glued on?
Question: Has there been any proof that these are officially licensed other than just a business's website saying so?
the only think i don't like is the round side holes. maybe i can take them to someone and have that fixed.
Check this out: http://www.cnet.com/news/back-to-the-future-air-mag-shoes-can-be-yours-for-under-100/
"While the shoes are officially licensed by Universal Studios, they aren't a Nike product. You'll notice the lack of swoosh or any Nike branding. The phrase "Air Mag" doesn't appear anywhere in the product description. Nike brought out its own high-end version of the Air Mag in 2011, but it was destined only for people with deep pockets. The shoes were sold in a very limited edition of 1,500 pairs through eBay with the proceeds going to the Michael J. Fox Foundation, a charity dedicated to treating Parkinson's disease."
So they are licensed by universal NOT Nike. The article points out that there is set to be a release of Nike Mags in 2015 with power laces!
"The power laces were conspicuously absent from the 2011 Air Mags, but we might not have to wait much longer for them to become a reality. Tinker Hatfield, a Nike designer famous for his Air Jordan contributions, was asked about power laces at a recent event in New Orleans. His answer, according to Sole Collector, was that we should see them next year."
Why buy and support such a crappy product in the first place?? :facepalm
Come to think of it, I may actually get a few pairs and do an "adidas" edition and a "puma" edition just for the fun of it! lol!
