Thanks to a plea from a teen with cerebral palsy seeking shoes he could put on his feet independently, Nike is introducing sneakers designed specifically for people with disabilities.

This isn’t an app and not quite the type of AT we typically think about. But if you stretch the concept just a bit… if adaptive shoe laces are assistive technology, then a special shoe could be assistive technology, right.
I thought this was a great news post about a teen with strong determination and self advocacy skills. Kudos to the teen!
Looking forward to seeing these shoes on store shelves or web based stores!
