New Shoes and Pedometer...

I bought some new shoes. After trying on a few pairs and jumping around the store. I chose.. The Nike Air Max Moto +5.

Nike Air Max Moto 5 + Wide - Dick's Sporting Goods

And they are oh so cozy so far. I went for a walk tonight.. because I can not run until next week (doctors orders because of an enlarged spleen and tonsils)

I was also looking into buying a pedometer.. but no one had the one I wanted in store so while purchasing my new shoes... the store manager showed me the new NIKE + series for IPODS. I had never even heard of it.. but apparently its (basically) a pedometer that you physically put in your Nike + shoes, that connects to the Ipod and tells you how long, distance, calories, and pace all while listening to music. It's pretty cool. I walked 2 miles just to test out and I played with it almost the whole time. See...

Step 1.
Insert sensor into sole of shoe.
*Put sensor in left shoe.

Step 2.

Attach receiver to iPod nano.
*Attach receiver to IPod Nano. Set Workout.

Step 3.

Runner with Nike plus
*While you run it does all the work.

Okay so I feel like I am working for Nike in promoting this product.. sorry.. I just wanted to let everyone know it is really neat. And the shoes are really fabulous.. and so cushiony. Love them so far. I will let you know just how great it is after I can run again.

warning: the Nike+ is addicting! It is pretty darn cool and works way better than a pedometer. Have fun with it. I hope you feel better soon and get back to running.

I just got off the Nike+ site messing around and all...mine is new as well and I am loving it. I can't believe I went so long without one.

Glad you are taking it easy- don't overdo it though, even with the walking!

I can't run in nike shoes but have an attachment that goes on my shoelaces with this cool gadget in it..I echo the sentiments of others...love this! Not to mention it's only about 35 dollars!

I loved the technology of it but found (I have had it since it came out about a year and a half ago) that you do have to re-calibrate it fairly often.... Just be sure to occasionaly double check the distance it says with something else so if it does need to get re-calibrated you can :) just my 2 cents

Maybe the technology has improved, but my friend had this a couple of years ago and said it didn't seem to calculate distances accurately. She decided to buy a Garmin instead. But if they've worked out the kinks, it sounds like a lot of fun. If only I had an iPod . . .

I need new shoes- and I lost my pedometer-so wanting to get another one- so thanks - I think I may try this whole set up w/ my nano. looks really cool.

I can't give my two cents for the Nike+(I'm a Garmin girl) but I can say that I recently bought the Niek Voomero shoes and I love, love, love them. I hadn't worn Nike in years because I hated how they fit but the salesman said they'd totally revamped their running shoes so I gave em a try and I am now hooked. All you Nike doubters should try them out if it's been a while.

Isn't the Nike+ fun? You should ask Sticky Niki about her's... she is totally addicted to it! Have you checked out the "Challenges" they have at the website? Niki is doing them all the time.

Nike Air Max Moto is looking super cute!! I wanna see them in my shoe collection!!

There is another option. It's called the Shoe Odometer. It's a very small pedometer like devices that is worn on your running or walking shoes. It does the regular things like a pedometer, but it also monitors your shoe wear so you know when it's time to replace your shoes. Since it's worn on the shoe it is more accurate than regular pedometers. Everything is automatic, so you can start using it right away. It can be found in some specialty running stores and online: www.shoeodometer.com
