It seems every piece of technology is succumbing to the touch screen effect. The iphone, the new blackberry, the teeny tiny TV's on British Airway planes. Once you go touch- you can't go back I tell you. We are definitely a generation of the future. What I didn't expect to turn touch screen were sneaker shoes. Not just any sneakers of course but good old Nike ( I am pronouncing it Nike not Nikey) to touch screen you own design onto your sneakers.
Days before heading back home to Bahrain I went about trying to spend every last penny on a new wardrobe for when I come back home - silly habit I know. And after frequenting a sample sale at the Hospital Club and buying a ballerina inspired black dress at Rokit I walked across the Nike store in Covent Garden in a hurry to meet my friends at The Apollo Theater. ( We are rushing to see Josh Hartnet playing Tom Cruise for the theater adaptation of Rainman). And in my hurry , there was rain, shopping bags, and uncomfortable boots involved, I actually stopped to watch some people touch screening a colorful wheel outside the store window.
