Shoes haven’t undergone such a revolution in decades! While the entire footwear industry focuses on minimalist soles, Powerlace plans to conquer the planet with the very first auto-lacing technology.
The Québec start-up is proud to introduce the first pair of shoes that lace themselves, unveiling a futuristic-looking prototype of captivating simplicity.
Bending and tying is now a thing of the past. Simply slide your foot into the shoe and it laces itself, like magic. There are no complicated, motorized mechanisms. All it takes is foot pressure. A small lever at the heel loosens the laces.
The ingenious Powerlace technology has been extensively tested, both in the laboratory and out in the world. Needing capital to start large-scale production, the company has launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. Pre-order your revolutionary pair starting at $175.
