Puma Fi self lacing trainers unveiled

Puma Fi self lacing trainers unveiled”

This is $20 less than Nike's Adapt BB basketball shoe (via AppleInsider). "It's fast and changing all the time", said Charles Johnson, global director of innovation at Puma. Now implemented in a beta stage, the shoes come with a micro-motor that powers a "uniquely configured cable system" to lace up the shoes. It comes with a smart sensing capability that learns the shape of the foot of each user and adapts the fit of the shoe to the individual.

A successor to Puma's AutoDisc, the first wirelessly connected adaptive fit shoe that was shown off in 2016, Fit Intelligence will eventually make its way onto footwear in various categories across the brand.

Tying your shoe laces is the most boring thing to do. It's also an interesting approach that looks beyond what some might consider a gimmick. His scene with self-lacing Nike "Air Mag" shoes in the 1989 movie Back to the Future Part II had moviegoers imaging one day never having to fiddle with laces again. To make things even more athlete-friendly, users can make on-the-fly adjustments with their Apple watch.

The wonders of modern technology!

Puma is about to get more high tech.

The self-lacing shoes also feature a breathable upper section and an "industrial grade" fiber support system with a forefoot lockdown band for a snug fit.

Of course, this is also a way to sell pricier shoes. The Puma Fi Has been created to offer consumers a training and light running shoe which is expected to be available to purchase during the spring months of 2020 priced at around $330 a pair.
