The Glide FlyEase, unique in its ease of donning, is specially designed for the medal ceremony.
The 2020 Summer Olympics (date saved for marketing reasons) was postponed due to the pandemic, but will still take place in Tokyo in July-August 2021. For sports brands, this long-awaited event will be the best opportunity to equip athletes from different countries with sportswear and shoes. This year, the American team was equipped with comfortable sets of white clothes made from eco-friendly materials. Nike. However, sneakers in which athletes will go to the medal ceremony deserve special attention.
The shoe of choice for the occasion was the Glide FlyEase. These shoes are partially made from recycled materials, but this is not the main feature of this shoe. The sneakers have a specially designed shape, thanks to which they can be put on easily without the use of hands. In order for the sneaker to be on the foot, it is enough just to step into it. This is a great solution for those who for some reason cannot wear regular shoes, for example, for people with physical disabilities, and for ordinary buyers who do not want to mess with laces and appreciate comfort, FlyEase sneakers will also be a great solution. .
The Glide FlyEase model, which the audience will see at the medalists in Tokyo, is created on the same principle as presented earlier this year FlyEaseGo. However, the new model uses a flexible rear instead of "bistable hinge" technology. When the athlete steps into the shoe, the shoe adjusts itself into position, and the elastic cord that runs along the foot ensures a snug fit.
On sale Glide FlyEase, according to Nike, will appear later, and the possible retail price of sneakers was also not disclosed. But the earlier model FlyEase Go will be available soon at a price of $120. Initially, these shoes were presented in a limited edition, but the company was criticized for the fact that people who really need such shoes cannot get access to them. In connection with such a response, Nike promised the imminent appearance of the next batch of self-dressing models.
