Nike New Hands-Free Shoes and the Disabled Community
Nike has always been a trendsetter for new styles of shoes and is currently focused on helping the disabled community by developing an innovative style of shoe called the Nike Go Flyease.
The Nike Go Flyease is designed to make it easier to put on and kick-off your shoes because the shoe remains locked in both the open and closed positions. The designers of Nike have incorporated a new tensioner and bi-stable hinge (think of it as a large rubber band) into their shoes. It allows the shoe to open and close easily. Nike’s goal is to help individuals with disabilities with the process of getting their shoes on and off safely and quickly.
