The new Nike Air Max 90 FlyEase have a collapsible ankle that snaps back into place as you step into them.
The heel is designed with athletes that may have difficulty tying laces in mind, but it’s not just a shoe for people with disabilities. It’s an awesome design that makes everybody’s life easier. I think it looks great too.
I’ve been saying this for years (decades maybe? I am: old), but accessibility isn’t something you should consider at the end of a product design cycle. If it’s integrated into the process well it can lead to innovation that benefits people of all abilities.
Well done Nike. More of this please, everyone.
