Eric Koston Mid McFly – The thirst for the Nike Air Mag is real, and Eric Koston is the next Back to the Future fan to create a custom edition of his signature mid-cut sneaker. The McFly edition of the Eric Koston mid doesn’t have the power laces that Marty was rocking, but the mid-foot strap looks awfully close. The uppers mimic the Air Mag with a soft grey nubuck, and the right shade of blue outlines the Nike across the mid-strap. It’s not the real Air Mag, and it doesn’t have the power laces, but its a nice consolation until Tinker releases the real McCoy.

Besides the carefully chosen textile, the jacket also arrives with a removable liner, traditional fishtail design, and a little bit of fur trim around the hood.
