Puma AUTODISC Auto Lacing Sneakers

Like many of you, we fully expected the Nike MAG to be the first auto-lacing sneaker to hit the market – but it looks like we were wrong. In fact, the title for the first auto-lacing shoe won’t even go to Nike, but rather Puma with their AUTODISC technology.

The footwear label’s patented system uses a servo motor to power a cable arrangement that runs throughout the shoe’s layered foam and mesh constructed upper, letting users automatically lockdown their sneakers with the touch of a button. The prototype version featured here utilizes an onboard battery that is recharged with a micro USB cable, but knowing that wearers would want nothing to do with this kind of setup, Puma promises that the final iteration will include a charging plate. This means no need to plug in the shoes. You can expect Puma to roll this technology out into their sneakers next year.
