Dharma-Burger! Nike’s new “Zen” sneaker

This new shoe, Nike tells us, was “inspired by the practice of meditation and the concept of Zen….  Almost every part of the shoe reflects an aspect of a tranquil Zen garden: a modified Waffle outsole made to look like stepping stones, an insole that mirrors a raked rock garden, and slightly different midsole side lengths-a juxtaposition of seriousness and playfulness.”

Perhaps Nike will also take further inspiration from Buddhism-confluent lines and do what it can to halt its involvement in the propagation of suffering.
