Grantwood Technology has announced the Shoe Pouch, a new product to allow runners and walkers to use the Nike+iPod Sport Kit with shoes other than the Nike+ shoes. “For any number of valid reasons, many people prefer to wear Asics, New Balance, Saucony, Brooks, etc. and even Nike shoes that are not Nike+,” says the company. “We wanted people to be able to use the Nike+iPod Sport Kit with any style of shoe.” Made of neoprene, the Shoe Pouch attaches through the laces of one shoe and is priced at $6.

Is the Nike+iPod even accurate? I mean most of those mile counters aren’t. People can just shake them and say hey I walked so many miles today. But anyways I hope the pouches go on sale at major retails stores, then I might actually buy the Nike+ipod system.

Yeah the Nike + is pretty accurate. Mine was only about 3 meters off over 400 meters so that’s not bad right out of the box.

Of course you could shake it and tell people how far you’ve run but that doesn’t make it inaccurate it just means you’re dishonest grin

This like the Marware one look like a great idea, as not everyone like the Nike+ trainers!

The Marware ones are a little expensive especially when shipped is inc to the UK.

So I thought great a cheaper ‘version’ but why the extra $2 for the international one?

Are they made from a different material, maybe?

Seems rather odd to me!

The extra $2 for international is explained on the site (they are charging a fixed post rate so have to increase the cost to cover the extra postage)

“We wanted people to be able to use the Nike+iPod Sport Kit with any style of shoe.”

You know, as long as your shoe kind of looks like the one in the picture above where it’s not totally glaringly obvious you’ve stuck something to your shoe.
