Since the London 2012 Olympics started 10 days ago, I have been spending a lot of time watching the coverage on two different channels. New products and technology have always been a favorite interest of mine and I spend a lot of time reading and writing about them online. One thing I have been paying close attention to during this year's Summer Olympic Games is the advancement in the technology behind the athletes uniforms and how that technology can help the athletes perform better. One item stat stood out for me this year in paricular is the fluorescent yellow shoes that almost all of the runners from every country in the world have been wearing.
At first I thought the shoes may be custom made by the countries for their teams but upon further research I fond that the shoes are made by Nike and are called Flyknit. The running shoe world has never seen anything like these before!
The shoes are available at Nike stores (or online at Nike.com) and most sporting goods and shoe stores for around $150 USD. The shoes are available in over 10 different colors.
Have you seen or tried out these new shoes? Leave your comments below and let me know what you think!
