Nike caused quite a stir earlier this year with the announcement of its first sneaker made with hands-free technology. Designated as the FlyEase, certain trainers feature a flexible heel that collapses when you step in then snaps back into place to secure your foot. Others boast a wraparound zipper and 2 straps to secure a custom fit. 

Manufactured for the disabled and special needs community in mind, Nike took a number of their popular shoes and incorporated FlyEase capabilities to make it accessible for every consumer. From the iconic Air Jordan 1 to the always popular Air Zoom Pegasus running shoe, take comfort in knowing that you can comfortably play basketball, soccer, train and walk around without concern of shoelaces coming undone or other risks.

We linked eight popular FlyEase sneakers below, include the Air Jordan 1 previously mentioned and the Glide FlyEase Premium Team USA wore during the Tokyo Games. If you're seeking a verified opinion, we also included helpful feedback from satisfied customers. Shop the entire FlyEase collection at Nike and snag favorites before they sell out.

"Great shoe! Feel like an Olympian and wear what the athletes wear. Comfortable, sleek and lightweight. Although, I’d recommend a half size smaller for a more snug fit."

"I was skeptical of FlyEase but wanted to try it. Very impressed. Always find Pegasus to be great running and gym sneakers. Use them even more for my workouts than for running (usually 1-3 miles followed by gym/weights etc). Comfortable, light and well cushioned with great support. The fly ease is a really cool addition that doesn’t take anything away from the shoe. Still supportive with a good fit. Recommend these without hesitation."

"Great looking sneaker with easy on and off functionality. Wonderful for everyone, but especially for people with special needs and may have disabilities. The materials are nice and soft and the detailing is beautiful. They are some of the best Jordan 1s on the market. Very good for TSA and security systems where you’re asked to take your shoes off."
