Nike Inc is to follow up the launch of its new Shox trainers with the launch of another range of new technology trainers known as Nike MORF (Multiple Option Replaceable Footwear) at the 50th NBA All Star basketball game in Washington DC on February 11. The new design, based on the current Air Zoom GP II design, consists of an inner shoe covered by a removeable outer shell, which is held in place with a 3M gripping material. The removeable outer shell means that the basketball players can replace the worn out outer shell without the need to buy a new pair of trainers.
