Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!
Nike has recently unleashed the LeBron Soldier 10 FlyEase, which is an updated, more accessible version of their FlyEase shoes. The original FlyEase design relied on a wrap-around zipper to fasten the shoe.  It also included a larger opening at the back of the shoe to make it easier to slide feet in and out.
The new Soldier 10 FlyEase shoes open from the heel to the midpoint, and use a flatter zipper and Velcro straps to secure the shoe around the foot.  It looks just like the traditional Soldier 10, but with a far more generous opening for the foot.
