Nike‘s FlyEase technology add improvements on the new LeBron Solider 10 FlyEase by expanding the mid-foot and heel counter opening, making it easier than ever to put on and take off the shoes.
“One of the key learnings we’ve had in crafting accessible footwear is the importance of easy entry and exit of the shoe, not just simplifying its fastening system,” says Tobie Hatfield, Nike Senior Director of Athlete Innovation according to Nike News. “Eliminating the intricate hand movement of lace tying is important, but if the athlete cannot get their foot into the shoe, lacing becomes a moot point.”
The shoe also features an upgrade to the zipper, which lies at a flatter angle than previous FlyEase shoes. It also makes it an easier pull around the ankle. The FlyEase benefits athletes of all ages to perform well on the court. LeBron James served as a supportive ambassador for the brand and helping kids understand that everyone is an athlete.
“It’s about us empowering every kid and everybody to understand that we are all athletes,” he says according to Nike News. “For myself and Nike to be able to collaborate on a project like this has been special since the very first time it was brought to the table.”
