The letter Michael J. Fox received from Nike & Tinker Hatfield

Michael J. Fox received a letter from Tinker Hatfield, one of the main designers for Nike today.

Hey Michael,
Almost thirty years ago we embarked on a journey to create a glimpse into “the future.”

Although the project started as science fiction, we’re now proud to turn that fiction into fact.

As the first, most celebrated wearer of the Nike Air Mag, we wanted you to be the first to receive a living pair, “I meant Nike Mag” (I must have Air on the brain).

What is so special about the Nike Air Mag is it’s impact continues to resonate. We may never know it’s final legacy, but we continue to work on projects that carry and progress some of it’s principles.

As you well know, innovation never stops at nike so we’re excited about what lies ahead for this idea. We know if you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything.

In addition to your personal pair, we’re creating more pairs for support in aid of the Michael J. Fox Foundation in 2016.

We hope that the combined effort will raise even more than the $9.4 million collected in 2011 and contribute to in some way eliminating Parkinson’s Disease in our lifetime!

Your Friend,

PS. If my calculations are correct, your pair should be with your shortly
