Nike to make all running shoes iPod compatible this year

Nike executives said last week that the company plans to make its entire line of running shoes compatible with the Nike+iPod Sport Kit by the end of this year. The AP reports: “It was the 22nd consecutive quarter of year-over-year revenue growth for the company. Nike leaders were equally enthusiastic about its retail changes as it is about its product lines for the coming year. Nike Brand President Charlie Denson said the company is entering a year of what could be its ‘best product lines ever.’ The company wouldn’t disclose everything that’s coming but hinted at changes from Nike Shox and in apparel. Nike did say it plans to make all its running shoes compatible with its Nike+ technology by the end of the year. Nike+ allows runners to track their workouts with Apple’s iPod.”

Great I just ordered a pair of Nike ID Shox with Nike + iPod compatibility. Oh well, they’ll probably wear out in time for me to buy a new pair when the new line comes out.

Fit is subjective, and while I do miss my Asics, my new Air Equalon+ are pretty great, they certainly don’t seem to be noticeably inferior in the build or anything.

I would never buy those shox things as a serious running shoe.
