Many don’t know that there is a heartwarming story behind the introduction of this no-lace, hands-free sneaker. In the year 2012, a 16-year-old boy, Matthew Walzer with Cerebral Palsy wrote to Nike that he dreams of going to college without worrying about who will tie his shoelaces through the day. In his letter, he wrote, “At 16 years old, I am able to completely dress myself, but my parents still have to tie my shoes. As a teenager who is striving to become totally self-sufficient, I find this extremely frustrating and, at times, embarrassing.” The letter inspired the team to create a sneaker that addresses the needs of people like him.
