Nike Brings Back Flyease Zippers To The LeBron Soldier Series

Nike Basketball and LeBron James changed the lives of disabled athletes everywhere when they created a special edition of his Nike LeBron Soldier 8 for Matthew Walzer last year. Dubbed Flyease technology, the model featured a unique zip-up system that would allow those with limited hand funcitonality the ability to slip into a pair of sneakers and tie it themselves for the first time. It was a feel-good story all around, one that even Time Magazine recognozied as a notable technological advancement. Now the Flyease movement continues with the Nike LeBron Soldier 9. The silhouette remains rather unchanged for a similar aesthetic, with the straps helping witha lockdown fit complete with a certain ease of slip-on use. An added zip construction hits the medial side, wrapping around the heel and connecting to the upper-most strap. Two colorways will debut this Spring 2016 season with more to follow at retail.
