Although many were disappointed that the Nike MAG’s would not be a surprise release and they would have to wait a few months to even have a chance at bidding on a pair at auction the reveal did not disappoint. Nike slyly tweeted messages of the pairs being in New York and allowing Michael J. Fox to reveal them to the world in his own way was the right move. A tweet and video brought the right type of attention to the Michael J. Fox Foundation.

And for those that don’t happen to be on social media or had time during the day, Jimmy Kimmel was doing his show in Brooklyn that week and a “surprise” visit from Marty McFly and Doc Brown.
