Nike+ System Hacked To Open Car Doors

Using an Arduino, hacker knowledge and a Nike+ iPod Serial to USB adapter, Nathan Seidle was able to rig up a system that constantly checks for his keyfob. When Nate gets close enough to his car, it opens up. When he walks away, it locks. The system worked flawlessly until he realized that while at work, the car would randomly ...

Nike Killshot Trainers Reissue

Oh me! Oh my! Let’s get down, people! Originally made back in 1979, these Nike Killshot trainers are making a comeback in a really nice color scheme. I love how the maroon is dominant in surrounding the subtle gray and creme tones. They’ll certainly look awesome with a pair of jeans. If you can find a pair (they’re limited reissue), ...

Nike and Nintendo Power Up

It’s no secret that we here at Gearfuse are no fans of the Nintendo Wii. So really, it comes as no surprise that when Nike teamed up with Nintendo for its new Blazer sneaker, the end result was an ugly ass shoe. Look at that dull blue sole! And the Nike stitching on the back heel? It looks like it ...

Flight Lite High: An Ode To The ’90s

Paying an ode to the Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes classic White Men Can’t Jump, these Nikes will have you ballin’ on the court with diamonds in your grill (such silly lingo!), Called the Flight Lite High, these shoes are as high as a pair of high-tops can get. Seriously. Reebok’s Pump doesn’t have jack shit on these puppies. Check ...

Now Nike is telling me that I’m an idiot and that these $400 Mercurial Vapor SL (“Super Lite”) shoes are the next generation of Nike. Designed for soccer, these ...

What If Your NES Played Shoes Instead Of Cartidges?

Nike is crazy about Nintendo. Not only does it make shoes that emulate the retro stylings of the classic NES controller, but now it’s producing t-shirts modeled after the packaging of the classic Nintendo Duck Hunt game. The only difference is Nike shoes have taken the place of the traditional packaging showcasing the NES cart. Oh, that and it now ...

NES Air Max Sneakers Are Not As Cool As They Try To Be

At first, these shoes don’t look much like a classic Nintendo Entertainment System. Look closer. These kicks have D-pads printed around them. Look even closer. See the “Start” button? It’s trying very hard to look like the one on the controller. Definitely a cool design, but is it cooler than Hennessys Cognac Kicks? Absolutely not. Not even close. There is ...

Nike Truck Crushes Little Kids

Mountain Dew’s Action Sports Tour is headed our way and Nike really wants to make peoples’ jaws drop. For their campaign, they hired the ad/design firm Hub Strategy who worked on this armor-plated war truck, turning it into a mobile extreme sport HQ. But, what makes this monstrous truck so extreme? It’s not the skateboard ramp on the back or ...

Nike’s Back To The Future Basketball Shoe

I don’t know about you, but I happen to think the Back To The Future trilogy is one of the greatest achievements of modern cinema. The only thing I didn’t like about it is how the whole world is supposed to end if Michael J. Fox meets Past or Future Michael J. Fox, but when Jennifer meets Future Jennifer nothing ...
