As one of our eight NikeUNITED Employee Networks, the Disability Network seeks to empower a culture of belonging while championing universal inclusion and accessibility for the well-being and success of all. Disability can be apparent or non-apparent, temporary, or permanent, and most importantly, everyone’s lived experience is unique. The Disability Network’s mission is to celebrate and empower the diverse experiences of our global disability community. This employee-formed and managed network provides community, information, resources, and education to all NIKE teammates through a variety of events, partnerships and outreach activities. The network also promotes opportunities for teammates to contribute as volunteers, champion NIKE’s global Diversity, Equity & Inclusion efforts, and support the development of a diverse and highly effective workforce.

Nike FlyEase is changing the perception of what it means to be an athlete* with each successive design creating more sophisticated solutions that balance the rigor of FlyEase criteria and Nike's overarching performance standards.


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.

NIKE Go Flyease

It's intuitive easy on, easy off and evidence of how design, innovation and engineering can meet to answer an ambitious North Star: the creation of a hands-free shoe.
