Grinding up old shoes to serve a second life as a treadmill mat is brilliant, and we applaud it fully. However, the Nike Grind is an equipment mat designed for a gym environment. While it is thicker than flimsy 2 mm mats that are often sold as treadmill mats, it isn't as thick as we'd like, it's too large for any office treadmill base we've ever seen, and it has color flecks of old sneakers that make it just a bit gaudy for the office environment. The fact that no warranty is provided leaves us wondering how durable this mat will really be after a few years of use.
Dr. McBabe’s Walking Desk Product Review
At WorkWhileWalking we've gone through great efforts to educate treadmill desk enthusiasts on the importance of proper equipment selection and ergonomic settings. Then along comes a product that brings it all into focus by literally violating every piece of sage advice that we've ever passed along to prospective treadmill desk users. In short, the only way in which Dr. McBabe's Walking Desk Platform is superior to a roughcut plank of wood with two adjustable straps is that it won't give you any splinters.
