Nike launches easy-don Flyease high-tops

Beaverton, OR-based Nike began selling its new Flyease athletic shoe, designed for quick no-lace donning by people with disabilities, in limited quantities on on July 18 .

The shoes, which are sold as part of the LeBron James Nike series, were inspired by Matthew Walzer, a high school student with cerebral palsy who was tired of asking friends to tie his shoes. He wrote to Nike in 2012, a move that resulted in the release of a basketball high-top designed for rear entry and easy closure.
