Look Ma, No Hands: Nike Is about to Drop Hands-Free Shoes

Read next

As a brand, Nike has always been a forerunner of innovation. In 2015, the company launched the first products in its FlyEase line that was largely inspired by teenager Matthew Walzer who was seeking an easy way to put on shoes.

Now the collection is expanding not only with a new style, but one that is completely hands off. So how does the new Nike GO FlyEase work? Check out the amazing video below.

Nike uses a bi-stable hinge that allows the shoe to be secure in fully open and fully closed states. The shoe also used a signature Nike GO FlyEase tensioner which uses the motion of kicking off a shoe to redefine function.

The innovative new footwear is perfect for athletes, people on the go and especially moms who have their hands full. The initial launch comes in three colorways: white, Celestine Blue and Volt, black, Dynamic Turquoise and Hyper Crimson, and black, Anthracite and Racer Blue.

For now, the Nike GO FlyEase shoes will only be available by invite for select Nike Members, but the brand will roll out to the general public within the year. Stay tuned for pricing and availability.
