Nike release first pair of hands-free runners
Yes, hands-free runners.
Nike has released its first pair of hands-free runners as part of its popular FlyEase range.
The Nike GO FlyEase is made of two sections connected by a hinge that allows users to put them on and take them off without tying shoelaces or using another fastening.
According to GQ, the runner is "ideal for a range of activities from fencing to jogging", while also referring to it as one of the brand's "most revolutionary trainer designs to date."
The shoes have gathered quite a reaction on social media, with some claiming that the term "hands-free runner" is bizarre, however, many were quick to point out that this type of shoe could be particularly beneficial for those with certain physical disabilities.
Nike design lead and American Paralympic triathlete Sarah Reinersten said: "Shoes for a long time have been a bit antiquated in the way that we undo the laces and then lace them up, this is a more modern, more elegant way to get in and out of your shoes and an easier way – you don't even think about it."
They look pretty cool if you ask us.
However, if you're interested, they don't come cheap, with them being priced at approximately €120.
