I recently visited the NikeTown store in Dubai, Mall of the Emirates. A guy walked up to me and tried to sell this new gadget by Nike that links your shoe to your iPod, I must admit at first I thought he was out of his mind, but then I gave in.
Yesterday I connected the Nike + iPod gadget and slipped on my compatible Nike+ shoes, and went for what has been the run of my life.
Basically what it is, is a little chip if you will that goes into your shoe, but not just any shoe a Nike+ shoe. Then you need a iPod Nano, which you connect the receiver too, you don’t need to install anything no wires no fuss. It is the easiest thing in the whole world, and I’m not kidding. While your running this lady, or a guy’s voice if you prefer, tell you that you have ran 2 Kilos, the time and your pace. You can create playlists for each work out, you can set goals and track them online, you can have a “power song” that you play when you need to go wild !!!! this thing is AAAMMMMAAAAZZZZZIIINNNGGGG !!
Now let me introduce to you the shoe, I have the Nike+ Air Zoom Moire .. nothing has felt so light, so comftorable, so foot forming like this thing I’m totally in love. Truly feels like I was running on Air.
For the wise guy commenter, I did not get a single dime for this, I sometimes wish I did. Maybe then each and every one would drive over the Six-K Gym walk in, be greeted, no testosterone small minded guys with tight shirts to stare at you, all happy people wanting to share the same dream, live dj 3 times a week .. and plenty of treadmills and lots and lots of encouragement, instead of us being at the mercy of time + weather 😉 … we’ll get there don’t worry 😀
