The advancement of tech is not only limited to just laptops and mobile phones. In the world of shoes, there are several innovations in the market. Self-tying shoes or power laces (self-lacing) are currently available on the market.

These are designed to tighten themselves automatically after putting them on. The idea of these shoes is taken from the old science fiction movie “Back to the Future 11” in 1989. Several show companies are working on this new technology such as Nike, Puma, Powerlace Technology, Power Laces, LLC and Digitsole Smartshoe.

These footwear will be available in stores soon. But they are not for everyone, and they will be quite expensive too so while you are waiting for these shoes to become affordable, check out some other shoes online.

How self-lacing technology works?

The impressive shoe lacing technology starts from the heel of the show to unlock a mechanism. This patented technology uses max strength stainless steel nylon coated wires. The laces are made of durable Kevlar material with a remarkable 250 lbs of breaking strength.

With a lace lock feature, the wearer can also adjust the tension of laces. The shoes have inbuilt thermoplastic pullers that acclimatise to your movements to stay secure throughout your walk and natural flow of feet.

Solid TPU soles feature flex-fatigue and abrasion resistance to enhance your performance during play or work. The self-tying technology activates with the use of the weight of your body. It works without springs, gears, motors or batteries. You can work without any pressure because your shoes become lightweight and comfortable.

With the unique adjustment system added to this product, you can walk confidently and fast. You will not worry about back pain or other body related issues when tying the laces. These shoes feature equal tension distribution to increase your comfort. The self-tying technology ensures that the shoes are convenient to put on or remove.

With dynamic balancing, this technology can also support your natural coordination and movement. TPU soles have a sturdy grip and studs for better control while you are moving on rugged terrain. You can easily maintain your balance on slippery surfaces because of its outsole resistance.

Who will need self-tying shoes?

If you have any trouble while tying or lacing your shoes, this tech is high for you. Self-tying shoes are specifically designed for autistic children or people with arthritis. For these patients, self-tying shows can increase their freedom, and they can also boost their self-confidence. Also, these are suitable for every age.
