Black and white ad for Nike sneaker.  Ad features close up of shoe.

Back to Nike, I wanted to highlight their awesome Nike FlyEase ‘accessible’ sneakers that have been available for a few years.  This particular sneaker series is designed for individuals that are not able to fasten and unfasten traditional laces and/or struggle getting traditional sneakers on and off with ease..  The FlyEase system incorporates a unique zipping system that also includes a portion of the shoe (with expandable openings) modified to allow easier entry and exit of the individual’s feet.

 In more recent years, the FlyEase sneakers have become very affordable starting at approximately $80 and going up to a couple of hundred dollars.  This series of sneaker includes youth and adult sizes. Popular running shoes such as Nike Pegasus and very trendy basketball shoes such as the Lebron James ‘Soldier’ are included in this accessible lineup.

One of my previous coworkers had a pair of these accessible shoes a few years back and they were much more expensive than recent times — it’s awesome to see that the Nike FlyEase sneakers are now affordable, readily available and comes in children sizing, too.  If you want to review the product line, check them out here!

Thanks for reading,
