From celebrities to us commoners, we are all somehow aspiring to grow our own Nike sneakers collection. Be it your usual Air Jordans, Air Max or Air Force 1 collections, a true sneakerhead will treat their Nike sneakers like their most prized possessions. In probably one of Nike's marvelous new releases, the Nike GO FlyEase is revolutionary in every sense. So what is so special about what seems like any other sneaker? Trust Nike to excel in advance technology that boasts comfort, design and innovation to make a simple pair of sneakers truly unique. The creation of a hands-free shoe is something we probably only imagined but Nike proves that we're in fact living in the future and made this dream come true.
The Shoe Mechanism
The smooth motion is caused by the bi-stable hinge created by Nike that enable the shoes to secure whether it is fully open or closed. This duality is allowed thanks to the Nike GO FlyEase tensioner, a unique feature that supercharges an action we all subconsciously perform - kicking off our shoes. The tensioner reimagines this movement swiftly making this accessible and ensuring this empowering design is an absolute winner. And winner it surely is on the Internet.
The Heartwarming Inspiration Behind These Shoes
While these sneakers are revolutionary to say the least, it opens avenues to many of those who may suffer from a disability. The heartwarming story behind these fabulous shoes is the experience of a then 16-year old - Matthew Walzer, who in 2012 contacted Nike to develop shoes that could help avoid tying shoe laces as he suffered from Cerebral Palsy. As a young boy off to college soon, he was able to overcome many obstacles in his life but remained dependent on his parents to tie his shoe laces. Nike specially developed shoes for him and there began the start to the FlyEase journey where the latest Nike GO FlyEase has been the most advanced shoes yet.
Not only could these shoes make our lives slightly less cumbersome on an action we usually take for granted, it gives opportunity to many more to reimagine their very own collection of sneakers (minus the laces). This revolutionary design went viral for obvious reasons where many with and without Cerebral Palsy praised the sneaker giant for these extraordinary shoes.
We suppose that with just a little thought, the world can be a better place and that too with stylish yet functional shoes to walk around in.
