In its recap of Air Force 1’s 30th Anniversary and the upcoming release of http://freshnessmag.com/2012/11/01/nike-lunar-force-1-fuse-officially-unveiled/” target=”_blank”>Lunar Force 1, Nike unveiled an interesting aspect in the development of Lunarlon sole unit. While a generation separates the introduction of http://nike.com” target=”_blank”>Nike waffle sole and the recent inclusion of Nike Lunarlon, there was one curious aspect both shared.
A milestone in Nike’s annal was how Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman created the first Nike waffle sole when http://freshnessmag.com/2011/03/01/nike-holy-grail-bowerman-family-unveils-long-lost-waffle-iron/” target=”_blank”>he simply poured rubber onto his waffle iron, much to his wife’s dismay. Food preparation was once again a source of insight for the Nike Lunarlon. During its development phase, Nike designers froze Lunarlon molds to stabilized them. In no time, thousands upon thousands of ice cream bar-like foam footprints filled the Nike Innovation Kitchen department. Proving once again that you only need a great idea and countless tinkering to come away with a great invention.
