Shoe (Pair), Flyease, 2015
FlyEase was inspired by Matthew Walzer, a teenager with cerebral palsy, who wrote to Nike to help solve the challenge of tying his shoelaces. The result was a shoe with a wrap-around zipper system that allows easy entry and exit of the foot from the back rather than from above, giving Matthew a new-found sense of independence and benefitting many.
