Nike completely revolutionized the sneaker game when it introduced FlyEase — a footwear technology that is geared towards those with disabilities to assist them in getting in and out of their shoes with little to no struggle. The tech has been implemented into various Jordan Brand and Nike products — the latter of which was recently spotted in the kids-focused Dynamo Pack — and now the easy on-off entry has finally made its way to the Converse family for the first time via its all-new Chuck Taylor All-Star CX FlyEase.

The silhouette is cut with a low profile and comes prepared with canvas uppers. The main element of the shoe is the heel as it now comes equipped with a FlyEase cage that collapses and springs back up so that wearers have easy access into them. Padded tongues and stretchy collars are also integrated to provide more support and flexibility. Lateral heel areas also spell out “Step In FlyEase” and are accompanied by a tiny Converse logo. Black and white colorways have been unveiled, both of which are designed with split-designed midsoles that come produced with a bold orange hue towards the rear.

“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,” says Phil Russo, Converse’s Global VP of Design & Innovation.

The Chuck Taylor All Star CX FlyEase is dropping in China, Korea and other global markets come February 24, followed by launches in Western Europe, North America via Converse on March 17.

In other news, Converse’s “Rubber Patchwork” Chuck 70 has been revealed.
