UNIVERSAL DESIGN FLYEASE
Nike FlyEase extends Nike’s long-standing commitment to “always listen to the voice of the athlete” by formulating fresh insights from the disability community about how shoes should function - innovation stems from rethinking norms. Nike FlyEase is an example of how sustained development and research focused on accessibility can advance footwear for a wider spectrum of people. FlyEase is driven by a design ethos that champions the value of a suite of systems that work toward a common goal: making shoes easier for everyone. With innovations that make products accessible and more hands-free, FlyEase enables more people to make sport a daily habit. Since its debut, FlyEase technologies have been employed in more than 20 footwear styles across basketball, running and sportswear. Our most recent hands-free design, the Nike GO FlyEase features a patent-pending bi-stable hinge and midsole and is a testament to footwear innovation in service of athletes with disabilities. Sophisticated, accessible solutions, like those in Nike GO FlyEase, are emblematic of the “better is temporary” mentality that drives Nike FlyEase technology. The Nike GO FlyEase is available initially via invite for select Nike Members, with broader consumer availability planned for later this year.
