Taking inspiration from talented athletes with disabilities, Nike created FlyEase technology to produce smarter designs for their footwear. They utilized this new tech in the Nike Air Zoom UNVRS Shoes, which is the first footwear built from the ground up with FlyEase.
Olympic gold medalist and WNBA player Elena Delle Donne drew insight form her sister, Lizzie, who lives with disabilities, and helped the shoe come to fruition. The Air Zoom UNVRS is easy for anyone to put on and take off, as it’s built with a magnetized heel that folds down and attaches to the midsole, allowing you to slide your foot in smoothly. It also features an articulated strap that works with Flywire cables to let you customize the fit of the footwear with one hand. The underfoot of the basketball shoe features Nike Air Zoom cushioning for incredible comfort and responsiveness while you’re in motion. Expect the Nike Air Zoom UNVRS sneakers to drop in November.
