Meet the Powerlace: a pair of auto-lacing shoes to make your life easier. As soon as you insert your foot, the lacing system’s mechanism is automatically engaged. You don’t have to use your hands to tie your shoelaces when you have Powerlace shoes. So how do you remove your feet? Just activate the small lever at the lower back end of the shoe to loosen up your shoelaces.
Powerlace shoes rely on a special presser, puller, lever, sole, lace lock, and heavy duty shoelaces to get the job done. The tongue of the Powerlace is designed to loosen up once the pressure from the laces is released. You don’t need to rely on batteries or moving gears to use the Powerlace system.
