The Nike Glide Flyease is another addition to the sneaker lineup that makes the culture more inclusive. Nike’s US Olympic athletes are wearing these in Tokyo including on the medal podium. The message is that these are for everyone who wants to enjoy convenience. But the Flyease program was originally intended for those with disabilities. We can all do our part in getting these to the right people who truly need them.
Check out Chris’s thoughts on the Glide Flyease in the video and article.
