Let me start with the bad news. The bad news is that they don’t actually have power laces. They’re just… really ugly shoes with lights in them. Also, the chances of you having a chance to buy them anyways are almost nil.
The good news is the reason you can’t buy them is because Nike is auctioning them off on eBay — 150 pairs a day for 10 days — to benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation in hopes of curing Parkinson’s disease. Today’s pairs are already pretty much up to $5,000 — yes, all of them — and it’s not quite 10am EST. So… yeah, the shoes without the power laces are kind of a gyp, but they’re a gyp for a very good cause. So… yay?
