Nike Releases New Line Of Sneakers For People Who Like Sneakers

NEW YORK—In an effort to combat the growing popularity of sneakers that feature a large hole in the front, Nike reportedly unveiled a new line of sneakers Friday that feature holes in the front. “We’re pleased to introduce our new line of high-quality, ground-breaking, and cutting-edge sneakers for people who don’t like wearing sneakers,” said Nike CEO Mark Parker at the unveiling of a pair of orange, gray, and black cleats, which feature a small opening in the back to allow the wearer to wear a pair of shoes that are much smaller than those in their closet. “The new design is a perfect complement to our new line of classic black and white sneakers that feature a large hole in the front of the shoe, which are ideal for people who simply enjoy wearing sneakers.” Parker also revealed that the Nike KD 8 "Sneaker Snake" is the first model to feature a different color for the heel.

New Poll Finds Majority Of Americans Don’t Know Which Park In Boston To Visit

CHICAGO—According to a new nationwide poll released by the Pew Research Center Monday, the vast majority of Americans do not know which park they will visit in Boston next year. “After extensive research, we have determined that, after a thorough assessment of a vast amount of information, a majority of Americans will not be able to determine which park they want to visit in Boston next year,” said lead researcher Dr. David Baskin, adding that, of those who do know which park in the city, roughly 80 percent will not be able to determine whether it is within walking distance of the other, or if it is “nearby” and could be nice to “just wander up and down.” “It can be difficult to discern whether a person is choosing to visit the same park, as we found that most individuals will not be able to discern whether that park is within easy walking distance of the other, or if it will be roughly an hour’s drive to the other park. It is important to note, however, that, for the most part, people will be able to figure out the park’s name and location once they have been guided to it.” Baskin went on to say that, in any event, 92 percent of Americans are not going to be able to determine whether or not they like the park in question.
