What happens when Team Cozy meets Team No-Phone? You get the Nike Offline. Nike’s new mule-like slip-on seeks to help you do… nothing. Everything about the Offline is designed for one purpose, relaxed comfort. From the exposed-foam padded tongue to the cushioned adjustable strap.
Armed with two sets of unique sensory drop-in midsoles, the Nike Offline adapts to your specialized brand of chill. Sensation 001 offers a massage-like experience; while Sensation 002 sports a nub pattern that’s better suited for slow walks down quiet trails.
As you can see, the Offline surely won’t help you run faster, but the story here is bigger than miles or seconds. Nike wants you to unplug and unwind with the Offline, and we’re going to tell you why. Disconnecting from the internet has a grip of benefits that’ll improve your mental well-being and overall health. Lets take a look into some of those benefits along with some additional photos of the Nike Offline.
A committed disconnect from technology can improve your sleep quality. Binging Breaking Bad for the 1,000th time in a dark room on your tablet destroys your ability to achieve and hold deep sleep. Turn that streaming service off and get some quality Zzzzs in a dark room. Going offline instantly raises your listening stats. When was the last time you had a conversation without a phone, TV, or computer? Eliminating tech distractions will make you a better active listener. Also, going offline (especially while wearing the Nike Online) will open up so much free time. Use the time away from social media to start a project you saw… on social media. Go learn a new skill, go learn a new language – do something to better yourself.
Think about the benefits you’d receive from ditching the ‘net for a bit. Look for Nike’s new Offline on August 28 via the Nike App for $120.
