Nike introduces its new FlyEase technology adorning the Air Zoom Pegasus 35 sneakers -- the functionality is designed to cater to those with limited dexterity, especially in their hands. It also pays attention to those who lack strength in their fingers, ensuring that the technology will inform additional footwear models in the future.
This progressive design was recognized by Sophie Hahn, a Paralympic athlete, explaining her experience with FlyEase as something that "makes you feel confident, I can just turn up and not worry about tying or untying them [...]The fact that Nike has developed this product for athletes like myself who find it difficult to tie or untie trainers or spikes means a lot." The special enclosure system is a hook-and-loop strap system that wraps around the ankle to fit around the heel comfortably.
