Nike PreCool Vest

Nike PreCool Vest

This years summer Olympics in Beijing doesn’t only cause political commotion, but it is also a commercial event. A lot of brands will use the media coverage to launch new products. This is the new Nike PreCool Vest; not your average sports equipment. The design was inspired by a 1960s mini dress and medical packaging. The triangles have a double layer, on the inside there is frozen water, the outer layer is just air for isolation. The purpose? With core cooling, athletes can often last 21% longer.

XX3

A few weeks ago, Nike launched the Jordan XX3, the last signature Micheal Jordan sneaker ever (ok we’ll see about that). Ofcourse they made a website to go along with it: XX3. Blast Radius did an excellent job there!
You arrive in some sort of hall from where you can enter 4 diffentent rooms. And when I say rooms, I mean 3D rooms where you can ‘walk’ around thanks to a nice interface. For those of you who don’t like this kind of explorative browsing, there’s a nice and clean alternative navigation at top of the page.
I think this is one of the best implementations of 3D Flash I’ve seen since a long time. It looks like Papervision3D, an open source 3D flash engine, is getting some real momentum here.
And as a bonus: the Nike M4 website, a few months old but definitely worth checking out too.

Nike Tech Pack

September 3rd, 2007

techpack.jpgNike launched its Tech Pack last weekend. It’s a collection based on innovative performance materials, diverse fabrication and design techniques. And it must say that most of the stuff looks great. So it’s a real let down that the website isn’t on par with the apparel. Some thumbnails don’t load, the videos stutter … hello buffertime … and why o why is it Flash 9?
Boo Nike!

Gone Running

August 31st, 2007

gone_running.jpgNike Women has this little feature on their website: ‘Gone Running‘. It’s basically a clock that you can hang up, to let others know when you’ll be back from running. On the website you can drag the clock and see a tag line for every 15 minutes. The best one: ’9:45 PM – The internet will be here when you get back. Promise’.
You can also get one in your snail mail … but I haven’t figured out how.

It’s been a while since I was excited about some new Nike Air Force 1 releases … ok, I’m still waiting for these Supreme Berlin ones. But these Supreme Canvas ones, damn hot! This picture doesn’t really do them any justice, the detailed ones at the Nike1Love blog do.
