Grantwood Technology today announced the release of their new Shoe Pouch which allows users to attach the Nike+iPod sensor to the laces of any brand of running shoe.
According to their website, the Shoe Pouch is made from “stretchable fabric” and attaches to the shoe by threading the laces through what appear to be four elastic loops. There’s no indication on the site as to what material the pouch is actually made of, or whether it is water-proof.
At $5.99 (plus $2.00 shipping), the Shoe Pouch is quite reasonably priced compared to Marware’s $10 SportSuit Sensor+, but is still pricier than the widely available Case Logic USB Drive Shuttle ($4.00). Additionally, since both the Marware and Case Logic products attach to your laces using velcro, they are easy to remove from your shoe and don’t require un-lacing to do so. Still, the Shoe Pouch appears to be a practical and affordable solution.
The Shoe Pouch is scheduled to begin shipping on November 1st.
