Reebok has a new accessible line of affordable sneakers that will make it easier for people with disabilities to put on and take off their shoes. Fit to Fit is the company's first ever adaptive footwear collection, and it features two sneakers with side zippers for easy on and off.
The shoes were designed in partnership with Zappos Adaptive, a branch of Zappos that sells accessible shoes, clothes, and accessories. The less expensive of the two sneakers are the Club MEMT Parafit shoes, $65 lifestyle sneakers that come in both men and women's sizes with a side zipper, extra 4E wide fit, and leather upper. They come in three colors.
The $90 Nanoflex Parafit TR are trainers with a side zipper, mesh upper, and heel pull tab. These sneakers come in four colors in men and women's sizes.
Both sneakers have lace closures that can be tied once and left alone to use the zipper with pull tab instead, high-abrasion rubber outsoles for better traction, and removable sock liners for orthotics or a customizable fit. The shoes are low-cut for better mobility. The goal of the collection is to help people gain independence in whatever they do — from everyday life to fitness and sports.
