Shoe Pouch: Use Nike+iPod Sport Kit with any shoes


A little over a year ago, Nike came out with the Nike+iPod Sport Kit. The rub? only Nike+ shoes feature a built-in pocket under the insole specially engineered for the Nike+iPod sensor. So, to get the best out of the product you'd have to invest in a pretty pricey pair of Nike+ shoes.

The Shoe Pouch, designed by Grantwood Technology, allows runners and walkers alike to use the Nike+iPod Sport Kit with any type of shoe (Rebok, Keds, New Balance, and my favorite Asics). The Shoe Pouch, made of snug-fitting neoprene, matches the correct alignment of the sensor, completely covers the sensor and attaches through the laces for excellent security.

What I really love is that Grantwood Technology boasts that they've saved their customers well over a $2,500,000 in purchases of new Nike+ shoes. The Shoe Pouch comes in 8 colors and costs $6.99. I've already spent like a gazillion dollars on my iPod and iTunes, so this makes perfect "cents" to me.

Price: $6.99 at Amazon.

this is great! i always want to change up shoes with my kit, and figured I'd just be out of luck when the Nikes wore down. Nice to know this exists.


My husband took out the insole of his running shoes and used a dremel tool to hollow out the spot for the Nike+ . He popped the insole back in and it works great.
