Since its inception in 2015, Flyease, Nike’s accessibility technology for people with limited mobility, has been applied to various shoe models. Nike’s latest hands-free shoe, the Go Flyease, is a culmination of this technology. However, until now, one of the brand’s most iconic shoes has not been updated with this technology – that is, until the recent release of official images showcasing the Nike Air Force 1 Flyease. The shoe is designed to provide easy access for wearers in everyday settings as well as on the basketball court.
The Nike Air Force 1 Flyease continues the iconic “Uptown” color blocking of the classic 1982 silhouette, with a triple-white color scheme that closely matches its predecessor. The only noticeable differences are the black Nike Air and Flyease branding on the tongue tab and insoles, as well as the metallic chrome dubraes, which pay homage to the original design by Peter Moore. Despite lacking some of the systems found in its Air Jordan 1-shaped counterpart, the Flyease model is still easy to slip into, thanks to the collapsible heel that operates invisibly from the outside.
Nike’s Flyease technology is usually designed to be visible on their footwear. However, with the Nike Air Force 1 Flyease, the collapsible heel conceals the Flyease modifications completely, making them invisible from the outside.
