If you haven’t tried on some Nike LeBron X, then you’re missing out on some super-comfortable shoes. That being said, if you’re looking for something unique, and Nike ID doesn’t do it for you, check out these customs.
I was really impressed when I first saw the Nike Flyknit Trainer, with its completely woven upper that is virtually seamless. It looks like Nike is planning on taking the technology to a new level, by integrating it with even better soles.
It looks like the Nike+ FuelBand is working well for consumers, and people who like to track their physical activities are rejoicing everywhere because nothing sucks more than buying tech that just doesn’t work (like the Jawbone UP).
Nike+ is receiving a major update this year, which includes pressure sensors and an accelerometer. The sensors will be mounted inside dedicated basketball and training shoes. Of course, you’ll be able to track your progress directly on your iPhone.
The Nike Sole was designed to fit on Össur’s Flex-Run prosthetic running blade, which is used by competitive amputee athletes. That being said, I wonder if future robots will be using this technology to outrun their human prey?
I was pretty happy that I held off purchasing a Jawbone Up wristband because users have reported massive failures. Since then, Jawbone has had to offer full refunds to anyone who made a claim. The Nike FuelBand reminds me of the Up, but unlike the Up it might actually work.
Remember how a little while back, Nike finally released its Back to the Future-inspired Nike MAG sneakers. Sure, it was for a good cause, but you’re probably not wearing a pair unless you had had a few thousand dollars to spare.
We were pretty excited when we heard about Nike’s new Back to the Future inspired MAG shoes. I just wish that they had power laces and that I could afford a pair. If that sounds like you as well, don’t despair.
Well, I was pretty excited earlier when I read all about the new Nike Air MAGs, the Marty McFly sneakers from Back to the Future II, but now that Nike has revealed the full details about the Air MAGs, I’m sad to report that they won’t feature functional power-laces.
How much would you pay for a pair of Nike Air Mags, aka the Marty McFly shoes in Back to the Future II? I don’t know, but since Nike also patented power laces (laces that will tighten themselves), I’m expecting something big in the coming weeks on the sneaker front.
Back in November, we mentioned the HEX silicone watchbands that had launched to turn your iPod nano into a geeky wristwatch. Watchbands for this purpose have become very popular since the new nano landed.
Remember those awesome kicks from Back to the Future Part II? You know, the ones that laced themselves up automatically? After seeing this DIY hack, it’s impressive that Nike has actually been working on a design for these shoes.
Like many football fans, I was caught up in the World Cup fever and didn’t realize how cool this installation was when it first made the rounds a few months back.
This 65-foot sculpture was on display in a shopping mall in Johannesburg, South Africa and was made by Ratcliffe Fowler Design for Nike.
Apollo 11 member astronaut Buzz Aldrin teamed-up with sportswear giant Nike for the Rocket Hero, a modified version of the Nike 6.0 Mavrk show. The Rocket Hero has Aldrin’s footprints on the moon adorning the insoles of the shoes.
