For years, people across the internet have been begging Nike to make the pair of shoes Marty McFly wore in Back to the Future. On September 8 the shoes made their debut on eBay. The auction of 1,500 pairs will benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research. 150 shoes will be auctioned off each day until September 18.

In one promotional video, Saturday Night Live's Bill Hader acts as shoe salesman to Oklahoma City Thunder's Kevin Durant. Christopher Lloyd makes a surprise appearance in full Doc Brown character.

In another video, Fox urges fans to take part in the promotion both to grab themselves a pair of the kicks as well as to donate to his foundation.

Will you buy a pair? They'll set you back approximately $2,500 at current bid levels.
