Nike’s GO FlyEase is a totally hands-free sneaker. It snaps onto your foot without laces by using a hinge in the sole. The sneaker was designed with people with disabilities in mind—but anyone can wear them!
This shoe is the latest in the FlyEase series, which go on and off with ease. Nike developed the first in the series in 2012, in collaboration with Matthew Walzer. When he was in high school, Walzer was concerned that not being able to tie his own shoes because of his cerebral palsy would keep him from going away to college. Walzer asked the company to create an accessible shoe. Nike responded by inviting Walzer to help test prototypes. “If Nike hadn’t reached out and helped, I probably would have had to live at home for college,” says Walzer, now 25 and a college graduate.
