You know how some ideas just seem to make sense? You see it and you get it.
Even though they seem to be a no-brainer, sometimes they catch on and other times they languish. Here is the Nike Sertig (circa late 20th century - my computer dates the photo at 1998) a high-top trail running shoe or light hiker. We will see a return to this thinking from a few other brands. Nike did not invent it, but did it very well here. As they say, history repeats.
