Nike + iPod

Written in



“Nike Inc. said on Tuesday that it is making running shoes that will be able to send data about the wearer’s performance to an Apple Computer Inc.’s iPod using a new wireless system called Nike iPod.

Shares of Nike rose over 2 percent as it capitalized on the popularity of the iPod line, which dominates portable digital music players. But one analyst said a relatively narrow section of Nike consumers would be interested in the running products.

Using a Nike iPod Sports Kit, expected to retail for about $29, consumers will be able to access time, distance, pace and calories burned through the earphones of a nano version of the iPod via a sensor in the insole of special shoes that communicate with the digital music player.”

    Wow, first Nike shoes that I’ve actually liked..I guess the sk8 kicks were not bad..but atleast for running shoes they don’t look like they were made for some kinda cyborg/kangaroo mix of killing machine! Just fairly simple and not drastically overpriced.
