…It’s Things Thursday: Dr. Martens For Life?

Dr. Martens For Life

Nothing lasts forever, but at least with the new Dr. Martens For Life boots and shoes, your footwear can last as long as you do.

Thanks to added weight and thickness in the inner core of the sole and a highly resistant and supple leather called Hardlife, the new For Life line comes with a lifetime guarantee, meaning when they eventually wear out, Dr. Martens will repair them, and will continue to repair them for the rest of your life – guaranteed.

…The Olympics have got sole?

Nike Sole Materials

Nike has designed an entire line of custom shoes for each sport in the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

While that doesn’t seem like anything special, keep in mind that in addition to the usual sports like Track and Field and Basketball, sports like Gymnastics, Wushu, Kayaking, Wind Surfing, Taekwondo, Equestrian, and Fencing also need unique shoes to enhance the athlete’s abilities.

For a full rundown, check out NOTCOT for a look at both the shoes, and the unique sole materials that help each athlete perform at their peak.
