Nike Go FlyEase: Slip. Push. Go!

In this day and age, almost everything is turning hands-free. Tesla launched its self-driving cars, and several appliance brands introduced their own Siri and Alexa. All these with reasons to save time, enhance convenience, and for sanitary purposes. 

Nike's attempt at hands-free sneakers started when it introduced the Zoom Soldier FlyEase in 2015. Tobie Hatfield designed this easy-entry footwear to help athletes perform better. Nike also unveiled the Nike Adapt BB in 2019 which features a rechargeable self-lacing technology. The Air Max series also adapted the FlyEase's primary purpose and launched the Nike Air Max 90 FlyEase

In early 2021, the Swoosh tried to push the envelope further by designing a contactless sneaker perfect for everyday use. The Nike Go FlyEase is ideal for wearers who have trouble bending down or don't have the dexterity to lace up their sneakers. It was initially dedicated to persons with disabilities but later broadened its market as Nike saw the potential in this sneaker.

No need to reach down; it's hands-free!

The revolutionary design of Nike Go FlyEase makes slipping it on and off incredibly trouble-free.

Push them down, and you're off to go

This sneaker caught the attention of many not because of its materials or style but because of how you get in and out of it. It has an orange hinge found on the outsole that allows the sneaker to crease in the middle. While it looks broken into half, you can simply slide your foot in and push your foot down, and you're good to go. This seamless wearing is also made possible by the rubber band called tensioner that wraps around the midsole. This flexible tension rubber band keeps the foot locked and secure.   

Meanwhile, taking this sneaker off is as easy as sliding in. Unfussily, use the opposite foot to hold the heel while sliding your foot out of the sneaker. With its groundbreaking hands-free construction, this sneaker is bound to set the trend in the footwear realm. 

It won't fly off as you go unless you kick it off

From our experience, this sneaker gives steady and secure strides. It won’t give you the feeling that your foot is sliding down. 

One word: Supercool!

We also adore the simple yet fashionable style of the Go FlyEase. We actually think that its overall look is reminiscent of the Nike Sock Dart.

It isn't a pain in the arch

All-day walking is painless with this pair of sneakers!

It flexes, bends, curves minus all the tension

Nike added grooves on the rubber outsole to make this pair more bendable.

Goodbye to sweaty, smelly feet

A suitable summer kick, thanks to its synthetic and airy mesh upper. 

It sells like hot pancakes!

Initially, Nike sold this in partial availability, which disappointed countless buyers.

Interesting fact

A teen with cerebral palsy named Matthew Walzer inspired the design of Nike Go FlyEase. He sent a letter to Nike about his frustrations and embarrassment as he always needed somebody to help him in donning his footwear. Good thing the Swoosh listened.
