VIA: ...or something like it.
If you're hoping to put together a Marty McFly costume for Halloween, but don't own a pair of Nike MAGs, you're not out of options. HalloweenCostumes.com will soon sell a run of 'Back to the Future 2 Light Up Shoes' for $99. That's right, an officially licensed replica by Universal Studios, sans Swoosh branding. They even come equipped with rechargeable LED lights.
According to the site, stock is expected on September 30.
Released by Nike exclusively through eBay in 2011, the MAG currently fetches an average of about $8,000 on the open market. The model is also rumored to be returning next year — this time with power laces.
With the official release being a pit pricey, is an affordable, functional replica worth owning?
UPDATE 9/30: Universal's officially licensed Air MAG replica released as expected at halloweencostumes.com today. Not much different from Saturday mornings, sizes sold out within minutes and the site crashed temporarily. They're advertising a re-stock for earlier November.
As of now, there are no less than 50 pairs already listed on eBay. Prices range from $275 to $2,500.

Via: You’ll be shocked to hear this everyone but LaRon Landry got popped for using performance enhancing drugs. I mean, if LaRon Landry’s not natural, then I just don’t know anymore. IS NOTHING REAL?! The eight-year veteran will sit out four games for the Colts and will return in Week 9.
Here is a before and after collage of LaRon Landry. I don’t see much of a difference, do you?
