Nike Creates First Hands-Free Shoe

Nike Creates A New $120 Hands-free Shoe Call Nike GO FLYEASE

Ever since Nike debuted the FlyEase sneaker line five years ago, the brand has made it physically easier to get into a shoe. But it always required at least one hand to zip, tie or strap the shoe closed. The new Nike GO FlyEase takes accessibility to a new place, offering the first fully hands-free shoe.

Using a bistable hinge in the shoe’s midsole, the Nike GO FlyEase can transition from the open—or “ready”—position to the closed—or “set”—position simply by stepping in and down on the footbed. To open the shoe back up, step on the heel’s ledge with the opposite foot, and the hinge releases to allow the foot to slide out.

The footbed remains a single continuous section, whereas the hinge allows the heel to drop away. To get the shoe off, wearers can embrace the natural human inclination of using the opposite foot to push down on a small ledge on the heel to release the hinge and make it easy to slide out of.
