Adidas soccer shoe and app can see if you’re really on your game
The free miCoach Soccer app for the iPhone and iPod touch allows you to collect data from the miCoach SPEED_CELL, which is chip either embedded in the F50 soccer cleat or can be purchased separately and clipped onto any cleat.
The app can track and measure top speed, number of sprints, distance in speed zones, and total distance covered during training. After a practice or a game, you can share and compare states through Facebook and Twitter. You can even compare your stats against real soccer pros through miCoach.com.
The system is available in Europe, Asia, Latin America, and the U.S. Adidas says it is planning on releasing versions tailored for basketball, football, and tennis in 2012.

I wish they had had this a few years ago!
My son was a midfielder who I know logged 5-6 miles in some games!

I know! As a former midfielder in a youth soccer league, I would have loved to have something like this. The compare feature entices me to strap on the cleats again and join a municipal soccer league.
