On show today were the Nike Hyperdunk, which were first unveiled a couple of weeks back. They’re not cheap though – around $250/£190 is what you can expect to pay for these gems, and that obviously includes the little chips and cables needed to ensure your shoes are synced with your iPhone and/or computer.
We also got to try out the new Nike Training shoes cheap nike air max 2011 which are geared more towards general workouts than shooting hoops.
The shoes let you know how high, quick and hard you play. It’s easy to see how these can become addictive – even if you lose a game of b-ball, you can retrospectively ‘challenge’ your buddies by analyzing and comparing your vital stats to separate the slackers from the superheroes.
We wore the Nike Lunar TR1 nike air max 97 shoes, where we skipped, jumped and sprinted on the spot to try and beat the competition. Thanks to a giant screen that displayed the iPhone data, we could easily see how we were faring against each other.
