Nike's new Apple Watch bands are made to go along their new running shoes
In case you felt a shortage of Apple Watch bands, there's no need to worry now. Nike just announced four brand-new straps that will go on sale June 1.
Costing $50 each (not too unreasonable of a tag considering general Apple Watch band pricing), they are made to go along with the brand's new Air VaporMax Flyknit "Day to Night" shoe collection. Apparently, their iridescent colors have been "inspired by a shade of the sky, from dawn to dusk." And if you ever lost sleep over being unable to match your wrist strap to your sneakers, now you can gleefully do so. According to Nike, you will be "making a statement" by doing that. How delightfully unpretentious!
The bands are made of the same material that Apple uses for the Sport bands and are also perforated for better ventilation and provoke less sweating. the bands will be available on Apple.com, in Apple retail locations, authorized resellers, and specialty department stores from June 1 onwards. Same goes for the $190 running shoes, although these won't be sold at Apple stores because Cupertino won't be getting into the shoe selling business just yet.
