TSR Fashion: Nike has definitely stepped its game up with this one, Roomies! The sneaker company has just unveiled its very first hands-free sneaker, the Go FlyEase. The sneaker uses a “bi-stable hinge” that allows the shoe to open and close virtually on its own.
According to a press conference from Nike, the Go FlyEase combines “design, innovation and engineering” to solve the issue of having to use your hands to put on sneakers. Ultimately, Nike sites that the shoe not only saves us energy, but time as well.
“In the Nike GO FlyEase, this translates to serving the broadest range of active lifestyles possible–whether the wearer is champion fencer Bebe Vio, a student racing to class or a parent with their hands full.”
Bebe Vio gave Nike a personal anecdote about her personal experience with being a professional athlete and the difficulty of spending time putting on her shoes.
“Usually I spend so much time to get in my shoes,” she said. “With the Nike GO FlyEase, I just need to put my feet in and jump on it. The shoes are a new kind of technology, not only for adaptive athletes but for everyone’s real life.”
The shoes have only been released for select Nike Members, and the company plans to open availability to more customers later this year.
Would y’all cop these, Roomies? Let us know in the comments!
