Since 2015, Nike has released accessible performance shoes under its FlyEase line, and the new Go FlyEase takes things even further. This one doesn’t just replace laces with a zipper and strap, and unlike the shoe designed for Seattle LB Shaquem Griffin, it doesn’t even require one hand to put on.
Thanks to a bi-stable hinge and midsole tensioner, the shoe is strong enough to wear for athletic activities or casual wear, but can go on your foot hands-free. Whether your concern is any disabilities that prevent bending over and undoing fasteners, or just stepping out of the shoe at the end of the day without touching it, this sneaker has other fitness wear beat.
Putting them on is just a matter of stepping into the shoe, as the hinge and tightener do all the work. To take them off, you use your other foot to hold down the “kickstand” heel and step out of the shoe. According to Nike the Go FlyEase will cost $120 when it goes on sale for “select” members starting February 15th, before it becomes more widely available later this year.
