A total of 1,500 pairs of the 2011 Nike MAG shoes will be sold via eBay, a new video confirmed.

The two-minute clip starring Kevin Durant, Bill Hader, Tinker Hatfield, Donald Fullilove and Christopher Lloyd as Doc Emmett Brown confirmed that proceeds from the sale would be donated to the Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research.

The shoes are available in sizes 7-13 and eBayers can bid now for the footwear.

Every day until the auction ends on September 18, 150 pairs of the 2011 Nike MAG trainers will be put on the eBay Fashion Vault. All donations will be matched through a previous $50 million sum given to the foundation.
