    what do you think about this???...personally i think its just a gimmick to boost the sales of both companies...the trainers cost about $200 plus an ipod kit for an extra 100 bucks...

    I would hope so. The shareholders wouldn't be too happy if the companies did things that weren't designed to boost sales.

    I think it's a cool idea - and this article says the kit will only cost $29 and go into the shoes that start at $100. But then again, I'm a sucker for almost anything Nike!

    Shouldn't this be discussed under the Streetwear forum?

    I usually hate stuff like this (i.e. the Thomas Pink iPod tie), but this actually seems like it would be pretty useful. I run with my iPod Nano almost every day and it has a stopwatch function, but that's about it - the new application will keep track of distance, speed, calories burned, etc. and automatically log it allowing you to keep track of your performance over time.

    From the article, it sounds like the shoes will be $100+ but the kit will only be $29 - if the shoes are decent, I might think about getting it.

    This is one of the few iPod accessories that I actually think is a good idea. I would buy it if it didn't require special shoes. If it was just a tiny object that I could attach to my shoes while out walking or running then I would get it. I'm fickle about my feet and Nike hasn't been comfortableLikely, though, if it becomes successful there will be more than a few kinds of shoes that are Bluetooth-enabled fairly soon. . Isn't the idea of Bluetooth-enabled shoes ridiculous when you actually consider it?

    It seems like a pretty cool idea to me. It's gimmicky, to be sure, but this gimmick could be beneficial to people.
