The FlyEase has always been known as a Nike technology. The top sports brand has released the Nike GO FlyEase in different colorways and we can expect more pairs will be introduced. For the first time ever, Chuck Taylor is using the same technology designed to be easy to wear and take off.
Chuck Taylor is joining the Jordan Brand and Nike in the roster of brands that are coming up with FlyEase versions of popular shoe models. This proves that progress and innovation are possible even in shoe design. Sneakerheads are probably getting excited at the idea of acquiring but for those people who are main targets of the FlyEase tech, this pair from Chuck Taylor is a new option for them to really use.
The easy on-off entry is the greatest advantage of the new Chuck Taylor All-Star FlyEase. It’s one accessible pair for those who really need it. The hands-free version of the Chuck Taylor All Star now joins the Air Jordan 1 Hi FlyEase, Nike GO FlyEase, and the Nike Air Max 90 FlyEase and we believe it won’t be the last.
The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star is one of the many must-have classics sneakerheads or non-sneakerheads should buy. But let’s admit it, tying those shoelaces can be time-consuming. For people with different abilities, it can be a pain. That is why the FlyEase technology is invented—to make wearing and removing the shoe easier for everyone.
Hands-free wearing can be done now with your Chucks. The ease the innovation offers is added to the classic look and feel of the Chuck Taylor All Star with its star-stuck ankle patch and canvas upper. The heel flexes feature a FlyEase cage that collapses when you step in. The canvas collar’s material is stretchable for added accessibility. To provide a more secure fit in the absence of shoelaces to tie, the tongue is padded. The heel tab and the heel overlay have also been modified so it is easier to slip into the shoe.
Nike’s FlyEase technology isn’t just for the kids and those lazy people who hate shoelaces. It’s also for the athletes who need efficiency, speed, and convenience. It’s also for the disabled or differently-abled people as it is easier to wear and take off.
Just like those from Nike and Jordan Brand, the FlyEase shoes from Chuck Taylor are better-designed, smarter, and more adaptive. The new pair maintains the silhouette’s visual heritage. You won’t think it has something more special because the profile is almost the same with the addition of color on the sole and of course, the FlyEase cage. Inside, there is the adjusted sock liner and insole with CX foam. These improved elements allow for more comfortable wear.
Converse Global VP of Design & Innovation Phil Russo has this to say about the release: “By blending Nike FlyEase with the Converse CX comfort platform, we’ve crafted a progressive design, one that marries a suite of comfort-innovation technology with the added benefit of ease of entry, making the Chuck Taylor All Star more accessible to Converse fans of different abilities.”
The Chuck Taylor All Star CX FlyEase has yet to launch in key markets beginning February 24. The pair will be out in South Korea and Greater China first. If you live in North America and Western Europe, you can start checking converse.com on March 17 to purchase. Available in either black or white version.
