Profile of the Nike Air Precision FlyEase

The Nike Air Precision FlyEase is a shoe model specially designed for athletes with disabilities. The pair may be below $100, and some are calling these basketball shoes cheap, but it promises a significant level of comfort and ease. It has Nike Air technology in the midsole, and it has good cushioning. On the upper is the FlyEase system that promises an easy entry for the foot. With only one hand, the shoe can be put on and secured swiftly.

Performance

Cushion. The responsiveness of the Nike Air Precision FlyEase comes from the full-length foam in the midsole of the shoe. It is described by the company as lightweight, and it has Nike Air technology in it for superb cushioning. The technology is basically pressurized air inside a sturdy and flexible bag.

Traction. The Nike Air Precision FlyEase has a firm and solid outsole. It promises such durability that withstands the pressures of the wearer’s multi-directional footwork.

Fit

Length and Width. The Nike Air Precision FlyEase comes in the standard width. It will be a bit tight for wide-footers but going up half a size is a quick solution. As far as the length is concerned, the shoe is true to size.

Lockdown. To securely hold the foot in place, the Nike Air Precision FlyEase has two straps: one for the midfoot and one for the ankle. The ankle strap connects to a wraparound zipper that extends up to the heel counter. This is what Nike calls the rear-entry FlyEase system. This provides convenience in getting the foot in and out of the shoe.

Material

The upper of the Nike Air Precision FlyEase is made of mesh and foam, delivering excellent breathability to the feet. The mid-top design of the shoe promises reliable ankle support. The collar of the shoe has padding that provides comfort to the wearer.

Style

The Air Precision FlyEase has the Nike Swoosh on both the lateral and medial sides. The strap on the midfoot has an AIR PRECISION callout. The ankle strap has the Nike logo with asterisk. The asterisk stands for the asterisk in Nike’s mission statement, which introduces this definition of athlete: “If you have a body, you are an athlete.”

The shoe has elastic shoelaces on the forefoot delivering ease of getting the foot into the shoe.

Story

Nike CEO Mark Parker told designer Tobie Hatfield that they need to help Jeff Johnson, the first employee of Nike to suffer a stroke. Hatfield had a lot of ideas that take inspiration from doors on hinges. Johnson told him that the design should not just for him but also for everyone else who could benefit from the design.

For a few of years, Hatfield had been developing a design for those who have trouble using their hands. Then there’s teenager Matthew Walzer who has Cerebral Palsy. He posted a letter for Parker on social media, asking if Nike can help him with a basketball shoe with good ankle support that he can wear to college. Because of Walzer, the FlyEase technology came to life and debuted on July 2015.
