Because life’s been seriously unkind at the mo, Nike’s looking to ease your burdens with the release of some new tech footwear that marries the comfort of sandals with the flex of a hype sneaker. And boy, is the Nike’s Go FlyEase aiming high with its hands-free approach by making the task of slipping in and out of your footwear look like an art. And such is the blueprint of this innovation that you might even start to question the existence of laces (and that self-lacing shoe that Marty McFly helped turn into a reality). Thanks to what it calls a bi-stable hinge, the Go FlyEase opens up in a manner that looks like you’re wearing a pair of sandals within the sneaker. Simply by stepping on the heel – just like how you normally do when removing sneakers – the footwear snaps open to allow your feet to exit. And just by slotting your feet back into the shoe, it snaps back into place without any fuss. Nike plans to release these to only invited Nike members on February 15 but expect it to hit the mainstream in the later part of 2021. For now, you can try practising the same moves on your ol' pair of Nikes like you always do anyways.
