This week in Hong Kong footwear manufacturer Puma has unveiled its new Fit Intelligence (Fi) line of self lacing trainers which build upon the company’s first HyperAdapt 1.0 self lacing training shoes unveiled back in 2016. The Puma Fi Has been designed 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.
Check out the video embedded below to see the new self lacing trainers from Puma in action. To tighten the shoes simply swipe up on the touchpad and to loosen a quick swipe down. As you would expect the shoes also come complete with a companion application allowing you to tighten the shoe directly from your smartphone. Offering a fantastic piece of technology for those incapable of tying their own shoelaces. Hopefully they will manufacture smaller shoe sizes the children under the age of five.
“PUMA was the first to craft a laceless sports shoe with Velcro™ straps in 1968, the first to put a computer inside a shoe in 1986 and the first to introduce a wirelessly connected adaptive fit shoe called AutoDisc in 2016. Ever since, we’ve worked tirelessly on improving the functionality, the user interface and the durability of the shoe. The result: a technology that is smarter, lighter and more commercial. We call it Fit Intelligence.
It does not matter whether you are an urban runner or gym enthusiast, Fit Intelligence has got you covered: Through the shoe’s breathable upper you can enjoy more comfortable training sessions. The industrial grade fiber support system and a forefoot lockdown band provides you with an optimal hold.”
