I bought a couple of Nike+ holders but found that the Pod would just fall out or the bod would fall off my shoe. They were also bulky and bounced around a bit messing up the data the Pod gave.
In the end I made one

Take a piece of elastic 1" wide by 6" long
cut it into 2 strips, 1 4" the other 2"
take the 4" strip make it into a loop with a 1-2cm overlap and stitch the 2 end together.
You now have an elastic band about 2" long when flat.
While the band in flat take a pen or pencil and put it in the elastic band
Stitch a line across the band at the pencil. The when you take the pencil out you have somewhere to thread your bottom shoelace.
Put the Nike+ pod in the band lengthwise so it will be running in the same direction as the shoe.
Stitch along the top of the Nike+pod (it will be easier to take the pod out while stiching.
You now have a band with a slot for your bottom lace, a place for the Nike+ and a slot for the top lace but there is noting to stop the pod falling out.
Take 2" piece of elastic and sew it into a band.
Slide the 2" band up onto the middle of your 4" band and hey presto your Nike+ is snug and secure.

I've got my Nike+ sensor on my non-Nike shoes now. The best way to do it IMO is with Self Adhesive velcro. You only need a small piece. Stick it to the back of the sensor then stick the other side to the tongue of the trainers. The laces give it extra security but isn't really needed tbh.

Hope that helps.

...or you guys could just buy the official Nike peripherals. It might be a little bit pricey but it is worth EVERY penny!

A link to this non-existent peripheral would be appreciated. Nike only supply the shoes to put the Nike+ sensor in. Any serious runner will have a preference for the shoe they use and this is not normally dictated by whether or not they have a hole in the insole for a sensor.

Why don't people check the facts before firing off smart assed and pointless posts?

How was any part of my comment "smart assed". It was a suggestion to help the OP as opposed to him having to make the "fix" himself.

Grow up. If you want an argument go elsewhere.

OP - for my non-Nike running shoes, I use one of these. They do the job nicely.

I tried it and it doesn't hold the pod securely so the data that is recorded is more inaccurate than it needs to be.

The reason I made the "fix" myself is because it seemed to be the best option, although I like the idea of velcro on the back. In the end I gave up with the Nike+ and bought a Garmin 305. Way more expensive but much more accurate and has a heart rate monitor as well.

magicjay, I have nike+ running shoes now but my last pair of trainers weren't Nike. It isn't always about price but comfort. Some people want nike+ on their ipod but don't want nike trainers.

Do have to say that I managed to find a pair that I like though Pegasus25+, so I can have both now. :-D

I have a Marware pouch and works fine, i got it as a bundle for £11ish with the arm strap, but it can be bought separately for a slightly steep £7.

Sports direct offer the pouch instore in both black (exact same as in magicjay's link) and a gray one with pink detail for £3. They were behind the cash desk in my local one.
They also offer quite a good selection of the Nike+ trainers.

I picked up a new pouch for my OH who uses the Sportband version of Nike+ and I got myself a spare Nike+ armband (for the iPod version which I use) today in the Hayes store.

If you do have problems - do as I did before I got my Nike+ trainers. I attached the bracket at the back only to the middle section of my laces and actually fastened my laces over the pouch at the top and bottom, so both ends were strapped down. Perfectly secure and accurate.
