Nike's Free 5.0 Are So Flexible They Can Fit In Extra Tiny Shoeboxes

The Nike Free 5.0 is billed as the most flexible shoe in the world. To show off the minimalist runners, Nike had a special new box designed, which uses one-third the material of other boxes.


Nike's Lunar Shoes Make You Feel Like You're Walking On The Moon

To celebrate the 45th anniversary of Neil Armstrong walking on the moon, Nike has made a pair of shoes that will make you feel like every step you take is on the moon. Because of the all over lunar print, the silhouette of the shoe completely disappears and makes it look like the shoe is made from moon rock.


Nike's New Baseball Glove Comes Already Broken In

Nike’s new Vapor 360 fielding glove is specially designed to be used “straight out of the box,” according to Nike. Forget stashing it under your mattress for weeks until the leather loosens up — this glove is broken in from day one.


Nike 3D Prints Three Unique Football Bags For The World Cup

When you’re one of the world’s top footballers, there are a lot of perks. One of these perks is some extremely cool bespoke kit from the world’s top sporting goods manufacturers. Made exclusively for Ronaldo, Rooney and Neymar Jr., Nike’s new Rebento sports bag has a supple leather upper, but a plastic base entirely 3D printed and integrated into the black and fluoro green nylon mesh.


Report: Nike Is Killing The FuelBand

Nike has fired the majority of the team responsible for its FuelBand fitness tracker according to a report from CNET today, which also claims that the company is jettisoning wearable hardware for good. An anonymous source says that roughly 55 employees were let go from Nike’s Digital Sport hardware team, which covers industrial design and engineering for wearables.


Nike's Aggressive New Cleats Help Gridiron Players Turn On A Dime

The use of 3D printers has allowed Nike’s designers to prototype and test new footwear designs with a remarkably quick turnaround. And the latest shoe born from that new process is the Vapor HyperAgility cleat featuring re-engineered studs that Nike claims will give football players the necessary grip to explode off the line, but also stop and turn on a dime to evade an opponent.


Nike Designer Says Marty McFly's Power Laces Are Coming Next Year

If there was one disappointment about Nike’s awesome Back to the Future II Air Mag, it’s that the shoes didn’t have Marty’s power laces (and that they only made 1500 and neither you nor I own a pair). But Nike designer Tinker Hatfield says that’s about to change — power laces are coming in 2015. The future is here!


How 3D Printing Supercharged Nike's New Super Bowl Cleat

Almost a full year ago, Nike introduced its first shoe ever built with the help of 3D printing technology. The thing was, that cleat, the Vapor Laser Talon (seen below), was built for an absurdly specific purpose and market — just the 40 yard dash, just for NFL players. Now, though, Nike is bringing what it’s learned from the VLT to the consumer market — innovations that, without 3D printing, we might not have seen for years to come.


Nike Fridge Magnets Let You Design The Perfect Sneaker

Nike doesn’t realise it yet, but it could single-handedly make your fridge the most entertaining spot in your home — at least if you’re a sneaker freak. Because instead of poetry or Scrabble, the shoe maker has created a wonderful set of magnets that lets anyone be a sneaker designer, as long as you’re OK with never being able to wear your creation.


Nike FuelBand SE Review: More Style Than Smarts

The FuelBand was Nike’s first foray in fitness trackers, a sleek, stylish piece of wristwear that served as a constant reminder to be less lazy. The FuelBand SE is its wearable tech successor. But aside from a new splash of colour on the band, it doesn’t offer many more ways to make you move your butt.
