PRODUCT OF THE MONTH
Nike has released three more shoes with its FLYEASE entry system, designed for both kids and adults with disabilities. FLYEASE is a type of zipper that goes around the heel of the shoe. This makes it easier for someone to easily pull the shoes on and off.
In July, Nike introduced FLYEASE on its Zoom Soldier 8 model, inspired by 16-year-old Matthew Walzer, who has cerebral palsy. Walzer wrote a letter to the company asking Nike to consider developing a shoe design for people who may have trouble tying shoelaces.
Nike shoe designer, Tobie Hatfield, read Matthew’s request and started developing a prototype for a shoe Matthew and other people with disabilities could wear comfortably.
Now, the FLYEASE technology is available on the Lebron Soldier 9, Pegasus 32 and Flex Run shoe models, too.
