Nike Has Some Major Plans for High-Tech Sneakers

Erin Fitzpatrick

What's in store: Nike recently filed for two patents that shed light on what the company has up its sleeve. According to Quartz, the first patent document reveals that the brand is working on a sneaker with a built-in activity tracker. "The patent suggests it would perform many of the functions of other wearables, monitoring a runner’s distance, speed, and calories burned," Quartz reports. "Nike could use that information to map a run route and allow you to set different goals." The other patent document concerns new, highly detailed methods of customizing sneakers—even down to the pattern and type of material. It's safe to say we'll be waiting with bated breath for these ideas to come to life! In the meantime, click here to shop Nike. [Quartz
