The trainer’s design might date back to the early ‘90s, but it will actually be Nike’s first self-lacing shoe that can be remotely operated from the Apple Watch, or by simply telling Siri it’s time to lace up.

Adidas’ FutureCraft Loop Trainer Talks a Big Recycling Game

As much as I like trainers, one problem with the modern running shoe is that after your kicks get worn out, you can’t resole them like you can a nice dress shoe.

If a large part of your day is spent on your feet, a good pair of shoes can only do so much to keep you comfortable.

Puma Is Re-Releasing Its 32-Year-Old Smart Shoe That Was Lightyears Ahead of Its Time

The concept of today’s smart, connected wearables just didn’t exist back in the 1980s when text-only operating systems like MS-DOS were still popular. But that didn’t stop Puma from releasing what was possibly the world’s first modern fitness tracker by strapping a chunky computer to the back of a sneaker. Thirty-two years later, Puma is bringing those kicks back with the same design, but with updated tech inside. Read More >>
