Nike Did It: Self-Lacing Technology is finally here (February 12, 2019)

02/12/2019 Leave a comment

Remember the self-lacing shoe that Marty McFly wore in Back to the Future II? Well Nike is finally releasing a shoe to the public with similar technology. It’s called the Nike Adapt BB and it will have a smartphone “control” option as well as wirelessly charging every couple of weeks (due to the micro motors imbedded into the show.).

It will be released to the public on February 17, 2019–which happens to coincide with the 68th NBA All-Star game and GOAT Michael Jeffrey Jordan’s birthday (MJ will turn 56 on Sunday).

It will come at a cost though—$350.

Man! I’d want one but I don’t think I can ever justify wearing a pair of shoes that worth roughly P17,500 (Philippine Pesos).


Another one bites the dust: Saying goodbye to Nike Forum Greenhills (February 6, 2017)

There is a saying that the “only constant thing in life is change.”

And last Friday evening, there was yet another clear reminder of that fact when I caught a glimpse of the covered up windows and doors of Nike Forum.

As I don’t go to Greenhills as much as I used to, I was so surprised and saddened that the 9 year-old Nike Forum branch had finally closed its doors for the last time last January 31, 2017.

That familiar sight will most certainly be missed as the store and I had history. I even have one of their prestigious–at least in my eyes–Nike Fourm discount cards to prove it. (A privilege card given out to loyal customers who had met a certain sales bracket within a given calendar year).

The world is changing too fast man. Remember to always give pause and put a premium on the present.
