Nike Says Its $250 Running Shoes Will Make You Run Much Faster. What if That’s Actually True?
I love the interactive charts and stats in this article. The change in performance graph is the most telling: 85% of runners who switched to the Vaporfly go faster.
Also, I am really surprised how well the Adizero shoes performed – I haven’t heard as much noise about that shoe. I like the Adizero’s looks a lot. There is an Undefeated collab version that I’ve been eyeing.
This is so much what I’m into at the moment: sneakers, interactive stats, and great writing.

This super interesting (and not too long) video about ramen is what I’m about. I love ramen. In every form. I always have some in stock. I am going to eat some today for lunch. Via Kottke.

And finally, I absolutely love these long-exposure traffic light photos by Lucas Zimmermann.
That’s it for this week. I hope you found something interesting. Forward this to someone you think would enjoy it for me 😊
