The Best Shoe Design Recommended by Our Texas Product Design Specialist
It’s no surprise that one of the top sports and apparel companies in the world, Nike, are looking for new and innovative ways to help athletes around the world have the best products to train with. A common issue that most runners constantly deal with are leg injuries, and shin splints that can cause serious damage to one’s ability to run for prolonged periods of time. Research reveals that having the right type of shoe can change and improve one’s stride when running which helps with avoiding injury. Thus, Nike created the Reach Infinity Run. This shoe is specially designed to reduce injury by 52 percent! The design includes a 24 percept more cushy foam than the regular shoe and includes a wider footbed, a rocker with a 9mm drop, and a cushion that can last you up to 600 miles. Our Texas product design specialist loves the design of these because not only do they help keep injury away, but also enhance your stability while running!
A Mako Client Product that Our Texas Product Design Specialist Loves!
Created by one of our loyal clients, Harp Gahunia, Harp had a clear vision about creating a wearable tech device that surpasses the hundreds of wearable tech watches out on the market today. His vision was guided by observing the faults and problems that existed within popular models of existing wearable tech and focusing on eliminating those problems in order to give consumers an easier and elevated experience when using their devices. Thus, Kharaband was invented. Our Texas product design specialist shares that the genius behind the Kharaband lies in its smart design in that while the watch features a super sleek and modern look, it performs the same functions like any other current-day wearable tech watch, except that the watch is designed to be more durable, offering an extended and more powerful battery life that lasts the user up to 5000 hours of wear and usage!
A Product to Help Improve Your Running Pace!
Improving one’s pace is ultimately the goal of every runner, and with so many different methods out there, finding a good tech product to help is surely a smart tactic to help with improvement. Designed Byeongjun Kim noticed that a lot of runners actually face a lot of inconsistencies that exhaust runners while running instead of helping them. Thus, he designed the ‘Nike Baton’ as a way to help maintain and improve their pace. Our Texas product design specialist loves The Nike Baton because of how it helps each user receive feedback of their run through small vibrations. It uses the beginners’ pace to help aim to keep them at a consistent pace for the entirety of their run rather than slowing and speeding them up. It is designed in an easy, minimalist aesthetic that functions through a heart rate monitor on the side that works through contact of the users’ palm for an accurate reading.
A Product Made to Help Your Nutrition for Better Athletic Performance!
Fans of nutrition and fitness know a lot about how much maintenance and effort goes into maintaining and regulating a healthy diet. Those who take the extra effort to track and count how much of what they’re eating definitely understand how much time in their day goes towards counting the exact measurement needed for their fitness and nutritional diets. Weighing food can come with a lot of errors and without the right product; weighing food can be a tedious job. Intellipan is a genius idea that our Texas product design specialist loves! The Intellipan fuses both a functional cooking pan with a built-in scale to help you weigh your food while you cook. Not only is the Intellipan the perfect solution for nutrition and fitness fans but also is a smart and efficient product that can help quicken and speed up the cooking and meal prep process for people everywhere.
