Nike Structure 20: A Timeline

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

As the United States running boom (initiated in the ’70s) advanced, athletes’ footwear needs evolved and diversified. These realities paired with a greater understanding of over-pronation (the foot rolling inward upon ground strike) led Nike to answer a call for a running shoe with greater stability. The Nike Air Structure, Nike’s most stable silhouette, debuted in 1991.

Since its introduction, the Nike Structure line has earned legions of fans ranging from elite athletes — like long-distance champion Galen Rupp, who has worn iterations of the shoe for the past 16 years — to everyday runners to off-duty athletes who are drawn to the silhouette’s distinctive style. With the dawn of its 20th iteration, the Nike Air Zoom Structure 20 compiles insights from past

Started in 1989, Madam Lee would bake cookies for her loved ones and friends in her kitchen. But sooner than expected, the cookies has reached Johor Bahur and Kuala Lumpur, and even the nearby country Singapore. Due to the growing demands for the homemade specialty cookies, Madam Lee decided to shift from a manually-handled manufacturing facility to a professionally run, technically-enabled state-of-the-art facility. Furthermore, in order to make it viable for the international market, the brand name The Cookies Factory (TCF) was incorporated.

Nike Hyperadapt 1.0 Manifests the Unimaginable

“Innovation at Nike is not about dreaming of tomorrow. It’s about accelerating toward it,” says Tinker Hatfield. “We’re able to anticipate the needs of athletes because we know them better than anybody. Sometimes, we deliver a reality before others have even begun to imagine it.”

Welcome the Nike HyperAdapt 1.0, the first performance vehicle for Nike’s latest platform breakthrough, adaptive lacing. The shoe translates deep research in digital, electrical and mechanical engineering into a product designed for movement. It challenges traditional understanding of fit, proposing an ultimate solution to individual idiosyncrasies in lacing and tension preference.

Functional simplicity reduces a typical athlete concern, distraction. “When you step in, your heel will hit a sensor and the system will automatically tighten,” explains Tiffany Beers, Senior Innovator, NIKE, Inc., and the project’s technical lead. “Then there are two buttons on the side to tighten and loosen. You can adjust it until it’s perfect.”

For Hatfield, the innovation solves another enduring athlete-equipment quandary: the ability to make swift micro-adjustments. Undue pressure caused by tight tying and slippage resulting from loose laces are now relics of the past. Precise, consistent, personalized lockdown can now be manually adjusted on the fly. “That’s an important step, because feet undergo an incredible amount of stress during competition,” he says.

Beers began pondering the mechanics shortly after meeting Hatfield, who dreamed of making adaptive lacing a reality. He asked if she wanted to figure it out — not a replication of a preexisting idea but as “the first baby step to get to a more sophisticated place.” The project caught the attention of a third collaborator, NIKE, Inc. President & CEO Mark Parker, who helped guide the design.

The process saw Beers brainstorming with a group of engineers intent on testing her theories. They first came up with a snowboard boot featuring an external generator. While far from the ideal, it was the first of a series of strides toward Beers and Hatfield’s original goal: to embed the technical components into such a small space that the design moves with the body and absorbs the same force the athlete is facing.

20160315_fy16_inno_snowcap_white_hero_0058_native_1600

Through 2013, Hatfield and Beers spearheaded a number of new systems, a pool of prototypes and several trials, arriving at an underfoot-lacing mechanism. In April 2015, Beers was tasked with making a self-lacing Nike Mag to celebrate the icon’s true fictional release date of October 21. The final product quietly debuted Nike’s new adaptive technology. Shortly after, the completion of the more technical, sport version they’d originally conceived, the Nike HyperAdapt 1.0, confirmed the strength of the apparatus.

“It’s a platform,” Beers says, “something that helps envision a world in which product changes as the athlete changes.”

The potential of adaptive lacing for the athlete is huge, Hatfield adds, as it would provide tailored-to-the-moment custom fit. “It is amazing to consider a shoe that senses what the body needs in real-time. That eliminates a multitude of distractions, including mental attrition, and thus truly benefits performance.”

He concludes, “Wouldn’t it be great if a shoe, in the future, could sense when you needed to have it tighter or looser? Could it take you even tighter than you’d normally go if it senses you really need extra snugness in a quick maneuver? That’s where we’re headed. In the future, product will come alive.”

In short, the Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 is the first step into the future of adaptive performance. It’s currently manual (i.e., athlete controlled) but it makes feasible the once-fantastic concept of an automated, nearly symbiotic relationship between the foot and shoe.

The first generation of the HyperAdapt 1.0 will be available in the U.S. at select Nike retail locations. Appointments to experience and purchase the product begin November 28. Details on how to make an appointment will be announced in the coming weeks.

At UA Run Crew Launch

Last September 21, 2016, The UA Run Crew was launched at Kerry Sports Shangri-La Fort.  The event was started with a crossfit workout lead by UA Ambassador Zoe Pond-McPherson.  We did squats, burpees and sit-ups AMRP (as many repetition as possible) under 10 minutes.  Despite of pouring almost 3 liters of sweat with that workout (I am not exaggerating… promise!), I had fun.  I didn’t expect that I can do 50+ burpees in 10 minutes though those were not perfect ones, I still stink with burpees… hehehe.

After an exhausting crossfit workout comes cardio workout led by coach Toni Saret together with other UA women ambassadors for 10 minutes.  I also had fun doing it.

Reliving the History with Zooper Cruise

zooper

PRESS RELEASE

National Hero Dr. Jose Rizal once said,“Ang taong hindi marunong lumingon sa pinanggalingan, hindi makakarating sa patutunguhan.” (He who does not know how to look back at where he came from will never get to his destination.) This adage is a constant reminder for each one of us to look back where we came from, so that we may learn from the lessons of the past.

Our country has a very rich and colorful history and multi-racial culture as told through history books, literary works, various landmarks, and from the stories passed along by our ancestors through the generations. We may ask ourselves, “How much do we know about our history and culture?” A lot. Or maybe not that much? Decades have passed and most of us can only remember so much about our history and culture relying on books and multimedia sources, among others.

One of the most prominent landmark mentioned in Philippine history books is the Pasig River. National hero and novelist Dr. Jose Rizal even mentioned it in his two books Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo. Due to its geographical location which cuts through several Metro Manila cities, Pasig River became the gateway to the country’s historical, cultural and social life.

Through the years, industrialization has brought so much progress to various sectors of the government and the surrounding nearby communities, thus, Pasig River slowly lost its beauty as more factories were built along or near the banks. But with the recent rehabilitation efforts in place, bit by bit, the Pasig River is starting to gain back its glory.

Now, Zoomanity Group gives us one very good reason to relive and revive our country’s rich and colorful history and culture through the organised tours of the Pasig River aboard the air-conditioned ferries with Zooper Cruise.

Zooper Cruise offers all local and foreign tourists a relaxing, fun, enjoyable and educational tour of the Pasig River and the Philippine history. The tour kicks off at the Valenzuela Station in Guadalupe, Makati to Plaza Mexico in Intramuros. The tour offers a glimpse of the famous Malacanang Palace, which is the official residence of the President of the Republic of the Philippines and the classic architectural design of the Philippine Post Office Building, passing through decades-old bridges. Tour participants can indulge in the specially prepared snacks aboard, a souvenir photo and a sumptuous lauriat dinner in a restaurant in the heart of Binondo to cap off the day. All these for only Php1,999.00 per person.

Currently, there are two scheduled tours on the following dates: October 15 and November 11, 2016, from 3pm up to 9pm. The pick-up of all tour participants is at Alveo Place in Ayala Circuit at exactly 2:30 in the afternoon. A shuttle will then take them to Valenzuela Station in JP Rizal.

Remarkably, part of the proceeds of the Zooper Cruise tours will benefit the conservation projects of CSR-Zoomanity Foundation under the Yupangco Group of Companies.

Zooper Cruise offers special packages for schools and companies such as Educational Tour, Company Tour and Events, Anniversaries, Birthdays and other special occasions.
