Get in Gear: Shoe Pouch for the Nike + iPod Sensor

I am in love with the Nike + iPod Sports Kit. It comes with a receiver that attaches to your iPod nano, and a sensor that fits into your Nike sneakers. It allows you to keep track of the time, distance and calories burned during each of your workouts. You can even send your data to NikePlus.com, where it stores all your workouts and allows you to set personal goals. The only bad thing is you have to use the Nike Sneaks that are specially designed to hold the little sensor.

What if you don't like Nike sneakers because you've always been a New Balance girl? No problem. You can still use the Nike + iPod Sports Kit with your favorite sneakers. You just need to purchase a separate holder that attaches to your shoe.

I just found this one called the Shoe Pouch ($9.95). It's made of neoprene and has little loops that you slip your shoelaces through, so it fits snug against your shoe and stays put. The sensor fits inside the slit in the back of the pouch, and even has a Velcro closure to keep it extra secure.

Fit's Tips: If you run and walk in the rain or in wet areas, you may want to consider getting the RunAway ($7.99) instead. Although it may be waterproof, it only slips over your laces (not through them), so it doesn't fit nearly as securely as the Shoe Pouch.

does anyone know if they are going to make a Nike+ that's compatible with an ipod? I run with my ipod and don't feel like buying a nano just for this program.

I just sewed up my own! It took about 30 seconds and used the tiniest bit of scrap fabric and a piece of velcro. It's been going strong for 6 months now, with no problems whatsoever. I posted photos at the bottom of this page if you'd like to copy it: http://www.fehrtrade.com/gallery/39/smock-the-boat-dont-smock-the-boat-babyI absolutely LOVE my Nike+ and can't run without it now, but I've never once been prescribed Nike shoes. Asics and Sauconys suit my feet and gait much, much better.

Wow, what a coincidence! My mom has this exact Nike+ sensor holder, because just like me, she hates the way Nike shoes fit her feet. We both tend to wear Saucony or Adidas shoes, and we both use the Nike+ system for running. She's had this holder for a few months now, and I've been meaning to ask her where she bought it, but now I don't have to. Nice find, thanks fitsugar.

A word of caution about the RunAway (which I ordered after reading your post about it, Fit): It takes forever to arrive! It ships from somewhere in Asia, which they never say on their website. It took about 5 weeks for mine to arrive - and despite repeated attempts to contact the company, no one ever responded to my emails. I was very disappointed. I ended up ordering the Shoe Pouch, and LOVE it. I definitely recommend it as a product, and I recommend the company for their great customer service!

Hello fitsugar! I've been reading sugar network for a while now, especially fit 'cause I want to loose weight, right now I'm trying to be a vegetarian but my parents make me eat meat and I eat fish too. I eat healthier than before I guess. I've to be honest: I try to do exercise but I just don't have time, I only exercise in classes (sport class) or in the free time in school (playing volleyball). I wanted to have more time but it's kind of impossible to me. Anyway, I know that we shouldn't eat bread if you want to loose weight but as many people can't stop eating chocolate or candy I eat a lot of bread, what should I do? I like to eat salted roasted peanuts too, are they very unhealthy? My food isn't very salty so I guess it's not very bad right? Thank you and keep going with this, it has giving me a lot of tips. I'll try to comment more!
