Laceless Handsfree Neutral Sneakers

Nike Launches the Go FlyEase Sneaker in a Sand Drift Colorway

— September 28, 2022 — Lifestyle
Nike introduces a new tonal iteration of the Go Flyease sneaker model in a neutral Sand Drift colorway palette. The shoe is a hands-free design created by Tobie Hatfield, which caters to those with disabilities who are unable to put on shoes by themselves.

The intuitive design drew in a lot of attention and features a kickstand heel, black tension band, and bi-stable hinge -- all of which help hold the shoe open. The uppers have a laceless look and feature a blend of both waxed and perforated mesh materials. A nylon strap is added to secure the heel section of the shoe. Rounding out the design are the branded midsoles and black traction outsole units.
