We’ve all shamelessly done it. Rather than take the the extra 10 seconds to carefully untie our trainers after a tough workout, we instead kick them off from under the heel, leaving the laces perfectly looped together.

Thanks to the latest innovation and engineering from Nike, you no longer have to decide if it’s worth taking the extra effort to loosen the laces. The Nike GO FlyEase is the brand’s first hands-free shoe and as with every drop, the design features alone set Nike apart from a competitive market determined to be one step ahead from the rest.

Equipped with FlyEase’s patent-pending design, additional features include a bi-stable hinge that keeps the sneaker securely open upon entry/exit and closed when in use. Nike’s instinctive kickstand heel mimics the action you naturally perform to kick off any shoes, but by design and without compromising the quality of the heel over time. Finally, a tensioner band holds the trainer open and closed, snapping the shoe into position each time without fail.

Whether taking off on an outdoor jog or running errands, the range of capabilities in the Nike GO FlyEase make it one of the most coveted kicks of 2021. Priced at $120 a pair, the Nike GO FlyEase will be available to select Nike members in the United States beginning February 15. Expect a broader consumer availability as the year progresses. In the meantime, check out the images of the shoe below and make your calendars for two weeks from today.
