Nike's self-lacing shoes are being BRICKED by Android update

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Fashion meets Tech | Posted: Feb 21, 2019 3:31 am

We've all wanted to wear the self-lacing shoes that Marty McFly wore in Back to the Future II, and now that Nike has launched their awesome Adapt BB kicks, there are some niggly issues.




Now that Nike's new Adapt BB sneakers are in the wild, owners are complaining that their shoes are being bricked when being updated over the Android app. There are reports on the Google Play Store with reviews stating that the shoes "stop working after the update". You can obviously still wear them, but the self-lacing part of the Nike Adapt BB sneakers is a big, well, the entire part of the shoes I guess.





I'd be pretty bloody pissed off if I plonked down $350 on a pair of self-lacing shoes that turned out to be duds post-update, and even more so as it seems to be affecting Android users with iPhone owners reporting they have no issues updating the Nike Adapt BB shoes. If you update the shoes through the iPhone and then pair them afterwards on your Android smartphone, you should be alright - but you shouldn't need to do that.

Nike to start selling its PlayStation shoes on December 1

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Fashion meets Tech | Posted: Nov 23, 2018 3:55 am

If you need a new pair of shoes or you're a shoe collector of some sort, you might want to check out the PlayStation-themed shoes that Sony and Nike have worked together on.



The new PG 2.5 X PlayStation shoes are themed exactly like the original PlayStation console, right down to the original gray color and PS logo on the tongue of the left shoe. They look slick as hell, and I'm sure that if you purchased them you wouldn't even want to put them on.


The design of the new PlayStation kicks saw the creators being influenced by the old school PlayStation, with the tongues of the shoes rocking the PG and PlayStation logos that light up. The strap across the top front of each shoe provides stability that keeps your feet locked into the shoes, while the iconic PlayStation symbols are embossed in patent leather on both shoes.

Sony and Nike make official PS2 shoes

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Fashion meets Tech | Posted: Jan 22, 2018 7:18 pm

NBA All-Star Paul George's new premium basketball shoes are inspired from the classic PS2.




Sony has endorsed the PG-2s, a new shoe that Nike and the NBA's Paul George crafted in a bid to highlight the glory of the old-school PlayStation days. The Nike PG-2 colorway has a light-up panel with the PlayStation logo that can pulse with cool blue light--but the best part is that it's activated via a power button behind the tongue of the shoe.


In terms of color and style, the basketball shoes look straight out of the early PS2 days, and feature accents and hues that both match the current and yesteryear look of the PlayStation brand.

Adidas AM4 series shoes are built by robots

By: Shaun Grimley | More News: Fashion meets Tech | Posted: Oct 6, 2017 1:15 pm

I love when innovation and technology come together, I work for an automotive manufacturer where our body-assembly plant is 94% automated and features 279 robots that assemble and weld the vehicles body-structure together. In Germany, Adidas have opened their first robotic factory, dubbed the "Speedfactory".



Adidas plan to use the German Speedfactory to manufacture a new series of Adidas shoes, the AM4 series. These specifically designed shoes feature six models that each reflect six of the world's biggest cities across the globe. First up is the AM4LDN, tailored for London and will be available on October 19. Next is AM4PAR, the Paris designed shoe will be available October 26. Unfortunately, the remaining models are all stated for 2018 releases including AM4LA (Los Angeles), AM4NYC (New York City), AM4TKY (Tokyo) and AM4SHA (Shanghai).

PlayStation 1-themed snowboard looks AWESOME

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Fashion meets Tech | Posted: Oct 6, 2017 4:28 am

Sony is doing something I don't think it's ever done before, teaming up with winter and water sports brand Never Summer to make a limited edition PlayStation 1-themed snowboard.




The PS1-themed snowboard rocks the old school PlayStation logo, beautiful color streaks, and looks like it's been dipped in a pool of molten PS1 consoles.




Sony will be selling their PS1-themed snowboard for $500, with just 100 of them being made, making it a very limited edition run. But those who have $500 to spend and are PS1 fans or collectors, this would be an awesome purchase.
