Designed by Nike shoe veteran Tinker Hatfield, these shoes represented a futuristic take on the classic Nike brand. Several versions were created in order to achieve the various special-effects requirements for the self-lacing sci-fi shoes; this pair is a light-up walk-around version. The high-top sneakers feature a soft grey canvas panel with the Nike logo glued to the side, and blue-flecked foam sole around the perimeter. The sneakers are outfitted with LED lights on the side of the heel, and an illuminating 'NIKE' logo on the ankle strap. The heels showcase 'NIKE MAG' adhered to the foam.
These shoes have underdone sympathetic and stabilization, especially to the blue-speckled foam soles which had hardened and cracked throughout the years. Additional electronic work has been carried out to restore the light-up elements of the shoes. The EL sheets have been replaced, however the originals are included with the lot. One of the original EL sheets is marked with the date '11-7-88'. The lot remains in good restored condition and includes a custom-made display base. Dimensions: 25 cm x 30 cm x 24 cm (10" x 12" x 9 1/2")
