Supra TUF Vaider — Black/Black-White
Part of Supra’s 2008 Holiday collection. It features a black/black base and a white midsole, along with a new sliding tongue logo.
Nike Terminator Hybrid — 2009
These are set to release sometime in 2009. It features a contrasting stitch, new midsole, hybrid boot uppers, along with various detailing similar to Nike’s ACG models.
It seems that Nike is set to release its Fall/Winter 2008 line of snowboard boots. They promoted their new line via some toy boots (as in the photos in this post). I wonder who Nike will get to join their team. For sure not Shaun White as he just inked a 10-year endorsement deal with Burton early this year. That, and it’s just going to be weird seeing him go with Nike as Burton has been there since he was a little kid.
I have to give it to Nike though, they’ll probably attract some share of the market as they are a well known brand. I just don’t know if they will attract those season-riders (such as myself) as I have been a brand-whore with ThirtyTwo in terms of snowboard boots. They are just damn comfortable and does what it needs to do to have me ride all day/night long.
Anyways, time will tell if Nike’s snowboarding line will be a hit or miss1.
Apple introduced its new fourth generation of iPod Nanos today in 9 flavorful colors. Here are the features that set it apart vs. its predecessors1:
Colors of course! Silver, purple, blue, green, orange, yellow, pink, (PRODUCT) RED and black.
Built-in audio recording features.
“Genius technology” which automatically creates playlists from songs in your music library that go great together, with just one click.
UI/UX improvements with the help of the accelerometer. This allows it to behave like the iPhone/iPod Touch between switching from Portrait to Landscape modes.
Improved 24 hours of music playback or four hours of video playback.
I just wonder if its still necessary to buy the Nike+ piece since this new Nano now have an accelerometer built-in. If any, they should modify the Nike+ piece to work with an iPod 1GB+ Shuffle; which will be tempting for me to buy and use when running. Better yet, just a standalone Nike+ piece that can sync on its own to the Nike+ site.
