Nike has just invented the perfect commuter shoe: the City Knife. And they aren’t just perfectly portable—they’re fashionable too! Nike’s soft sneaker is designed to fold up into half its original size to fit more easily into your purse than a Prada wallet. Plus: the sleek style appeals to even the most sophisticated shoe-lover, and the City Knife comes in so many colors, the shoes will coordinate with any ensemble.

PRICE: $90
Opinions?

I hate Nike. And not only for that child labor thing either. I simply find their shoes plain hideous.

(Come to think of it, I dislike running shoes in general.
I wonder if that means I'm a snob... )

Purple's a snob. :-P

I dont like many of Nike's shoes... I only have Nike Shox and Nike Waffle racers (Great names)

I think this shoe is hideous and probably horrible to walk in. Picture those awful awful water shoes... and WALKING in them to work... that's what people do right? Walk in sneakers... change to dress shoes at work.

I haven't really liked any Nikes since the original Air Jordans, which I loved, especially the blue/black ones.

They seem to have re-released them under a different name and in new colors, but I am past it.

Nike is like the McDonalds of shoes IMO.

I guess I'm a snob too.

i used to love cordless trainers but both those styles
seem a bit hard to put on..
i get all upset when i need to shove my foot in cordless trainers,
gets in my nerves, they always need somekind of 'opening'
to become comfortable.

thanks for the topic & the photos guys

I prefer Adidas over Nike anytime.

And those shoes... are they meant to look like they've been slashed?

thats what i thought Pandera when i read the article!!


that shoe is super old as u say even though i prefer the first city knife to the newer models

i tried them on once... and they didnt look that good on.. even though i might give it another try. just cos i need a pair of "okay" lookin trainers to sit in my car for whenever its driving time


tnx igni

They remind me of the scrubs that you have to wear on your feet in the operating room

Those are pretty bad looking. The one I posted looks just okay for me, yet, I'm sure it'll be all over the place.

I don't know how they would look on the foot, but the way they fold up is very

cool- the sections are like Buckminster Fuller structures !
