Bidding has now begun for the most famous shoe never made– until now.

Go Michael J. Fox, go!  Money to a great cause…

For 10 days, 150 pairs of 2011 Nike MAG shoes will be listed on eBay. The first of the auctions begins September 8 at 11:30 p.m. EDT. All net proceeds from the auction sales of the 2011 Nike MAG shoes will go directly to The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.

Sergey Brin, co-founder of Google, and his wife Anne Wojcicki, co-founder of personal genetics company 23andMe, are matching up to $50 million in funds raised by the Foundation between now and December 31, 2012. Net proceeds from the 2011 MAG auctions on eBay will be matched, so please bid generously.
Together we’re going to help erase Parkinson’s disease from the space-time continuum.

Verified Pin

Another great one from Nalden.

If you’re on Twitter, you may have noticed that some accounts display a blue “Verified Badge” on their bio (mine does). It’s used to establish authenticity of well known accounts so users can trust tweets are legit. Now, the infamous verified status symbol enters the real world. Verify yourself offline.

All that verification is just 15 Euros! Very clever.

Bote Bathtub Play

This series of floating boats in cork and plastic for Portuguese Company Materia are gorgeous. Sure beats the rubber ducky I grew up with.

Composed by a cork hull and a plastic add-on piece (a sail, a row of engine chimneys or a cabin) Bote is your ticket to plenty of imaginative seafaring. Via Daily Icon

Floating Bench

This bench was visually inspired by the feeling of floating that the main character felt in the French movie, “Le Ballon Rouge”(1953).

Great bench design by Japanese Studio h220430.

In reality the bench is suspended from the ceiling by 4 anchors concealed by the balloon shapes. This creates the illusion of the bench being lifted by balloons. Via Dezeen
