So, is it just me or does Nike have some sort of announcement quota they are trying to hit?  Whatever the case, they are definitely doing a good job sparking my interest.  Just to bring you up to date since September 2011 (when they sent out their apology letter, which I attached below) Nike has updated the Nike+ app for … Read More

It looks like one of the wishes on my “Minimalist Wish-List” might be coming true. Today, Nike announced their newest technology, Flyknit, and the associated shoe, the Nike Flyknit Racer. I am intrigued by the video for this shoe, as it seems to suggest that the Flyknit Racer will be a minimalist shoe. The video begins by showing the bare … Read More
