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.
