Last year, Back to the Future Day came and went without a public release of the Nike Mags. About a year later and we plebs are getting a chance to finally own simulacra of the most iconic movie shoes short of Dorothy's ruby slippers. Here's the catch: You can only get a chance to buy them by entering a lottery with a $10 entry free. But don't groan. All of those entry fees go straight to the Michael J. Fox Foundation. (I'd make a snarky remark about Nike's karma here, but I'd like to keep this post positive.) You can buy as many entries as you want, and buying a ton of them may be a good idea as only 89 editions of the sneaker have been allotted. Download the Nike+ app to enter by October 11. Oh, and one more catch. These only come in sizes 7, 9, 11, and 13 because Nike doesn't believe in even numbers.
