Nike is about to revolutionize the sneaker game once again. Nike is set to release its first truly handsfree sneakers on February 15.
It's intuitive — easy on, easy off — and evidence of how design, innovation and engineering can meet to answer an ambitious North Star: the creation of a hands-free shoe.
Behind the shoe's smooth motion is a bi-stable hinge that enables the shoe to be secure in fully open and fully closed states.
This duality allows another signature detail: the Nike GO FlyEase tensioner. The tensioner’s unique flexibility super-charges an action many might take for granted (kicking-off a shoe) and completely reimagines this movement as basis for accessible and empowering design.
Jimmy Fallon took his 'The Tonight Show' to preview the model. He stated that he approached Nike about creating something similar. Nike reps then showed him the tech that they have been working on ten years prior. Check the video below for the full story.
Also, Nike also released images of two other colorways. The new colorway and a few more images are below.
