There are many options out there for using NON-Nike+ shoes with your Nike+ sensor and iPod.
From pouches to a ziploc bag, all of the helpful hints out there do everything except replicate the original intent of using a hole in the foam section of the shoe under the sole.

This tutorial will teach you to create a Nike+ sensor hole in whatever brand shoe you have.
This example is for my wife's Asics which she likes much more than her Nike+ running shoes.

There are a lot of steps in this tutorial for the sake of explanation, but the process is fairly simple.


Credits - To Brian Devane for giving me MacGyver skills when I was just a wee lad,
which I needed to pull off such a project.

Step 1: Things You Will Need

Here is a list of things you will need to make your own Nike+ sensor hole!

1. The Nike+ Sensor Kit (UNOPENED... this is VERY important)
2. The left shoe of your favorite pair of running shoes
3. A Box Cutter or Utility Knife (With a new blade preferably)
4. Scissors (for cutting paper)
5. A Dremel tool with a sanding bit.
<p>It's rare for me seeing DIY custom shoes. As i've known many just bring them to their trusted cobblers like the famous nushoe.com in the US.</p>
<p>At the time, as you can see in the pictures, Nike had custom shoes for these tracking devices, but this instructable allowed for people to have the same benefit with other brands of shoes. Thanks for checking it out!</p>
