Nike has announced their hands-free shoes, Go Flyease. The article, Nike made a hands-free shoe and you have to see it to believe it describes this new shoe. "[I]t's Nike's first pair of lace-less sneakers that can easily be put on and taken off without using your hands. The casual shoe arrives at a time when people are touching fewer things during the pandemic and a revival of comfier counterparts that take minimal effort to take on and off ...." The description and the video demo make it look easy-peasey: "[t]he Go Flyease has unique features, including a tension band that secures the shoe in place of laces. Putting them on involves just stepping into the shoe so that it will snap into place. Taking them off is done by stepping on the heel." Think about the advantages this will for certain folks, beyond those who are trying to limit their touching.
Thanks to Professor Feeley for sending me the article.
