With an aim at making it easier to put on, Nike Basketball has given the LeBron Soldier 10 a FlyEase reworking.

“One of the key learnings we’ve had in crafting accessible footwear is the importance of easy entry and exit of the shoe, not just simplifying its fastening system. Eliminating the intricate hand movement of lace tying is important, but if the athlete cannot get their foot into the shoe, lacing becomes a moot point.”
-Tobie Hatfield

The accessible design revision increases the size of the opening, stretching from the mid foot to the heel counter. The zipper has been given a flatter angle on the design to make it easier to pull.

The FlyEase edition LeBron Soldier 10 also includes an asterisk on the heel…

Subtle graphic hits, a small asterisk, appear on the heel, heel tabs and on the Velcro® under the ankle strap. These nod to the asterisk that appears next to the word “athlete” in Nike’s mission statement and references Nike’s belief that “if you have a body, you’re an athlete.”

LeBron James debuted the sneaker at the Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital for Rehabilitation, giving away pairs of the sneakers to the young patients.

The sneaker just launched and can be found in both adult and kid sizes through Nike.com and Nike Basketball dealers.
