Where to Find Nike Phantom GT Academy “FlyEase”
Nike Flyease has officially arrived – the latest high tech boot addition, allowing you to easily slip into your boots via a wraparound ankle strap. What makes it more interesting is where Nike is using it – on the Phantom GT Academy FlyEase. For those not familiar with different boot silos, the Academy version drops in at a very affordable $79.99, making them accessible to a lot of palyers.
What is Nike FlyEase? Well, it is an easy-entry footwear system designed to help athletes put on and secure their shoes—with zero compromise to fit and performance.
This is a case where Nike are listening to fans and players who need easy access to their boots. To get your foot in, you simply pull the strap loose, lower the fold-down heel, slip your foot in, then pull the strap back around your heel to your desired tightness. There is no hard heel, no laces, just an easy way to get your foot into the boot and keep it locked down inside without laces. There are a lot of players that will benefit from this design, for example players that can’t use both hands or have issue in general tying laces.
But, everything about these screams they are going to sell out. A crazy new tech on a very affordable boot, you know that a lot of people are going to want to test them out. So, if you are interested I recommend not snoozing. No word on whether it is a tech that will be used on other upcoming Nike releases.
