There are two major reasons to swap out the headphones that came packaged with your MP3 player. The first is sound quality, and the second is fit. The two are not mutually exclusive, but you may place emphasis on one over the other depending on your device usage. If you mainly use your MP3 player at the gym, getting a pair of headphones that both fit securely and offer some sweat resistance is key. The $40 Nike Aero Sport Headphones certainly fit the bill there, and although music doesn't sound great through this set, the sleek and sweatproof design … Read more
Leave it to Nike to make a video game fashion collaboration stylishly cool. Earlier this month, we showed you a pair of its surprisingly appealing Nintendo-inspired sneakers. Well, Nike just announced its second design in the series and this one is a little more unique than the first.
The Air Max Terra Ninety takes a couple of Nike's most popular models and mashes them into a hybrid shoe reminiscent of the Air Max 90 and Max Air. The overall colorway retains the familiar Nintendo controller palette and also incorporates the Nintendo D-pad design into the midsole. Unlike other streetwear collaborations, Nike won't require you to mortgage your firstborn son to pick up a pair of the Air Max Terra Nineties. They're available now for an affordable $130.

When someone mentions a pair of video-game-inspired sneakers, the end result usually isn't something worthy of slipping on your feet. However, these new Nike Air Max sneakers not only pay tribute to the classic Nintendo Entertainment System console, but they actually look pretty slick.
These new sneakers sport a D-pad pattern emblazoned on the toe and side of the shoe along with a reference to the "start" button toward the top. The NES Nike Air Max sneakers are definitely among the most tasteful articles of geek fashion we've ever seen, and word is you won't … Read more
When the rebel becomes king, it doesn't mean the people will suddenly be smiling.
Nike, once the brand that championed all who challenged authority, seems to have suddenly taken on the mantle, as well as the athletic supporter, of a regime not known for its fondness for allowing people to just do it.
The story begins with tears and might end in many more.
Many Chinese faces were moist when Liu Xiang, a very pretty 110-meter hurdler, suddenly withdrew from the preliminary heats of the Olympic competition.

Sportswear maker Nike looks set to steal the limelight at this year's summer Beijing Olympics with its latest innovation, the Flywire track shoes. The company will supply the U.S. track and field team with two pieces of Flywire footwear--the Zoom Victory Spikes and Zoom Matumbo.
Already creating quite a buzz in the industry with its revolutionary lightweight construction, the Flywire design is said to be inspired by the cables from a suspension bridge. It basically makes use of a strong Vectran thread arranged in a fan-shaped pattern at anchor points around the shoe. The result is a shoe … Read more

MARIN HEADLANDS, Calif.--It is sometimes amazing to discover what is right in your backyard.
I grew up in San Francisco, yet it was only recently that I discovered that just a few miles north of the City by the Bay, the United States' only fully restored Nike missile site is nestled into these gorgeous green hills, in plain view of the Pacific Ocean and one of my all-time favorite beaches.
It's always nice (and rare) to see a manufacturer actually release a product when promised. And Nike says it will be doing just that with the April 10 debut of its "Nike+ SportBand," which had been promised to come out this month.
It seems pretty much as billed before: The main difference between this latest portable fitness system and previous versions from Nike is that it doesn't require a media player to work. The armband gauges such stats as speed, distance, time elapsed, and calories burned while giving runners access to features on Nikeplus.com for … Read more
