Nike has released a trainer for people who are constantly on the move. The Nike Go FlyEase kicks are the brand’s first-ever hands-free shoes that allow you to put your shoes on and off without having to bend down.
A shoe for everyone
Created to include people of all abilities and those who have difficulty getting in and out of shoes, Nike has replaced traditional laces with zippers and cable functions.
When the sportswear giant announced their new design this week, many Twitter users expressed that the sneakers could change the lives of family and friends currently living with disabilities.
The unique design features a bi-stable hinge that remains open and extended when the shoe isn’t worn and closes when it’s on your foot. The shoe also has a kickstand heel, which Nike expressed, “mimics the action many intuitively perform to kick of their shoes, but by design and without compromising the heel.”
The shoe will make its way to South Africa later in the year and retail for R 1 800.
Watch how simplistic the shoe’s design is:
