The original release for the Nike Air Mag happened on September 8th of 2011. They were released on ebay, auctioned off and were limited to 1,500 pairs, with monies going to The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s disease research. 10 additional pairs of Nike Air Mag’s were packaged in deluxe presentation boxes and sold exclusively by Nike at live auctions around the world. $4.7 million was raised in the online auctions on ebay. Sergey Brin, co-founder of Google and his wife Ann Wojcicki matched all donations to the Michael J. Fox Foundation, bringing the total to $9.4 million dollars.
