The movie Back to the Future did feature some weird Nike early concept for their future shoes. One that caught all our eyes was that hands-free shoe the movie featured. It was a camera gimmick at the time but Nike in the year 2021 has come up with a close reality.
The brand new Nike GO Flyease is a hands-free and laceless shoe that uses a tension band to replace the traditional laces to fit in and remove the shoe without using our hands. Nike also embedded zoom technology to improve the comfort and durability of the shoe.
The shoe is inspired by a 16-year-old Matthew Walzer suffering from cerebral palsy, who back in 2012 wrote to Nike to design a shoe that carter to his specific need.
