Posted by New Scientist on Thursday, March 02, 2021 00:13:53One of the most striking features of Nike’s latest shoe is the way it blends the style of its signature shoe with the power of the swiping.
In the new Nike Swipa, the foot uses the same design as the shoes that come with its swag: the heel swipes across the ground.
The result is that you feel more like you’re swiping through the air when you step on the shoes, and less like you’ve been tapping your feet against the ground in a bid to get your phone to stop working.
It’s a clever design, but it does make it difficult to see if you’re actually tapping into your phone, and there’s a risk that it will make it hard for your phone’s GPS function to work properly.
In the real world, swiping is often not necessary for many tasks.
In many of the world’s largest cities, most people use their smartphones to navigate.
If you have to get out of a car and you don’t want to get distracted, it’s better to use a map or use a compass rather than swiping across the street.
But in a few places, such as New York, swiped is increasingly important.
New Yorkers are generally more likely to swipe when they want to see the sights, and in some places, people also swipe when going through busy intersections.
And a lot of people in the US swipe when buying food and drink, so it’s worth thinking about what your local authority will require of you.
If you’re unsure whether you can use the Swipas to your advantage, check out the official Nike Swopas site.
The shoe will be available on March 13, and you can get the swopas for £150 in either black or navy, which makes them a great value.
