Here’s The Teen That Inspired Nike’s First Ever Hands-Free Sneakers

Hello new-age Nike shoes

8 years ago, in 2012, 16-year-old Matthew Walzer wrote a letter to Nike suggesting an idea of hands-free hinged sneakers, and Nike just unveiled this brand new adaptive line. The letter was urging the brand to consider producing a pair of shoes that will make an impact on many athletes’ lives – for the better. And, let us tell you, Nike listened in the most beautiful way!

The Nike Go FLyEase is the newest Nike shoe in the market, designed with accessibility in mind! The sneakers were designed specifically for adaptive athletes, to accommodate any athlete’s disabilities. One of Nike’s designers, Tobie Hatfield, invited Matthew to collab on the new-age snaker design after reading the letter!

How cool is that? Not to mention insanely important!

Inclusivity all the way!!!
