The new DK+ footbed from SOLE Custom Footbeds allows users to transfer the Nike+ system to any pair of running or hiking shoes. The DK+ features an integrated pod that securely holds a Nike+ sensor underneath the arch support of the footbed.  SOLE married this pod with its successful Dean Karnazes Signature Edition Footbeds, which feature 1.6 millimeters of Softec cushioning, an X-Static moisture wicking topsheet and SOLE’s simple, do-it-yourself heat moldable custom fit.
