Nike Air Mags Releasing Everywhere 

Year: 2011

It took decades before the fictional shoe every sneaker and tech geek lusted after finall dropped. The rollout of the sneaker and the philanthropic gesture that accompanied it might make it one of the greatest sneakers of all time beyond aesthetic reasons. While people were dropping mortgage payments to grab a pair, rumors started surfacing that if you held out long enough you could grab them at a retail price of around $300. We can't blame people for trying to force Nike's hand, but it was going to cost to get on your Marty McFly-ness.
