…Nike wants you to be a part of The Human Race?

The Human Race

On August 31, join a million of your closest friends for Nike’s The Human Race, a 10K that takes place in 25 cities around the world, as well as in your own backyard thanks to Nike+ technology.

If you can’t make it to one of the designated areas on the day of the run, but you’ve got a Nike+ kit, simply register for the event, synchronize your watch, and run when everyone else does.

The goal is to get 1,000,000 people to run together, and to raise money for The UN Refugee Agency, the Lance Armstrong Foundation, and the WWF.

Think you’re up to the challenge?

Then sign up, and start breaking in those long lost running shoes once again.

…The Olympics have got sole?

Nike Sole Materials

Nike has designed an entire line of custom shoes for each sport in the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

While that doesn’t seem like anything special, keep in mind that in addition to the usual sports like Track and Field and Basketball, sports like Gymnastics, Wushu, Kayaking, Wind Surfing, Taekwondo, Equestrian, and Fencing also need unique shoes to enhance the athlete’s abilities.

For a full rundown, check out NOTCOT for a look at both the shoes, and the unique sole materials that help each athlete perform at their peak.

…Death From Above looks amazing?

Death From Above

Phu! And SBTG’s line of “Death from Above” Nikes is going to be one hot shoe release.

With the Death Seeker AF1s battling the Phantom Mirage AM90s, each side is limited to just eight individually numbered pairs, and at $500 a piece, they’re not exactly cheap, but when features include “weathered fuselage as an armor and cloaked in an urban desert storm camouflage” and “armored with metallic olive drab, battle dressed in desert storm and accented in a venomous acid green chompers”, it just might be worth it.

Available March 30th from Royalefam Shop.

(Be sure to check out Phu!’s Vinyl Is The New Canvas for some fantastic behind the scenes shots of what goes into a pair of very custom kicks.)

…The iPod Shuffle loves to touch?

iPod Touch Shuffle SaleIf you’ve had your eye on a new iPod Touch, then it’s time to pull the trigger, because Amazon is offering up a free 1GB Shuffle with the purchase of a 32GB Touch.

(It’s also a good time to note that the Shuffle is now just $49, with a $69 2GB version in the works. I used a Shuffle a lot for running, and it was the perfect player until I decided to get the Nike+ kit (which only works with the iPod Nano), so if you’re looking for a no hassle, easy to use MP3 player, then the Shuffle definitely gets my recommendation.)
