There’s a new video that’s burning up the list of popular YouTube videos, all because of the title, which claims you can get a pair of auto-lacing Nike Mag shoes for $10. Well, that’s partially true, at least for the fortunate folks who win a pair of the Nike Mag shoes after donating $10 or more.
As noted in the video, viewers can visit the Nike Mag page and enter the contest to win a pair of Nike Mag auto-lacing shoes using their Nike account.
The video is currently sitting in the seventh position on YouTube’s list of 200 popular videos.
As seen on the YouTube channel of Casey Neistat, the video highlights the best features of the Nike Mag shoes, which were first envisioned in Back to the Future Part II.
As reported by Sneaker News, the last day to enter to contest to win a pair of Nike Mag shoes is Monday, October 10. However, according to KHOU, the contest for the Nike Mag shoes doesn’t end until Tuesday night at 11:59 p.m. ET.
Casey’s video, meanwhile, opens with Neistat showing off the best features of the Nike Mag shoes.
“Loose laces, tight laces.”
The video highlighting the Nike Mag shoes — among other things — was uploaded to YouTube on October 9. It has swelled to enjoy more than three million views in about 24 hours.
Apparently, loads of people are interested in the $10 Nike Mag Raffle with all of the proceeds going to benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation, so folks can feel good about spending a pretty penny towards trying to win their own pair of Nike Mag shoes.
Of course, the person or persons who win the Nike Mag shoes can always try their luck at selling their Nike Mag shoes on eBay and making a handsome profit.
There are already some versions online, such as the “Nike Mag 2011; McFly; Yeezy; Back To The Future; DS; US 10” eBay listing going for $9,699.99 as of this writing.
Pricier eBay listings of Nike Mag shoes exist, such as the “BNIB DS Nike Mag Air Size 8 #0166 Back to the Future 2 Marty Mcfly Tinker” listing for $14,999.99, which is quite pricey for a pair of shoes.
The eBay listing titled “Nike Air Mag 2011 Back To The Future Marty McFly Size 9 417744-001 Brand New DS” is currently listed at $8,599.99 — with many of those eBay listings having quite a few folks watching the eBay listing to see how much the Nike Mag shoes finally sell for.
One such eBay listing titled “Nike Air Mag Size 8 #0195 Back to the Future 2 Marty Mcfly Tinker,” with a price of $3,999.99 as of this writing, currently has 79 people watching the listing on eBay.
The Nike Mag shoes automatically tighten around the wearer’s feet once the person steps inside of them.
Casey’s video also features a pair of live lobsters that a viewer has sent him. He freaked out when he read the instructions that told him he needed to boil the lobsters alive.
The instructions from the official website explain that each contest ticket cost $10, but contest entrants can buy as many tickets as they like. Since there’s a one-time processing fee of $1 that is added to each donation, entering a desire to purchase one ticket for $10 results in Nike explaining that the total cost will be $11 for that single donation.
“TAKE PART IN THE DRAW FOR YOUR CHANCE TO WIN THE NIKE MAG: In partnership with the Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF), Nike will provide everyone an opportunity through The Draw to win one of the only pairs of the adaptive-lacing Nike Mag. In total, there are fewer than 100 pairs available. Each ticket costs $10, and there is no limit to the number of tickets you can buy. Most importantly, 100% of the proceeds will go to the MJFF to help find a cure for Parkinson’s disease.”
After asking how many Nike Mag tickets a person wants to buy, the choice to select from men’s shoe sizes from seven to 13 is presented.
“Due to the adaptive lacing technology, if you are between these sizes, please select the next size up.”
Finally, the Nike Mag contest entrants must enter their payment information.
