Nike’s Self Lacing, Phone-Controlled Basketball Shoes

January 17, 2019

These have just been launched and are due to go on sale in February. Nike says it’s going to roll the technology out to other shoes in its range.

Michael Sawh, editor of Wareable,wondered yesterday to the BBC whether “a shoe that removes the need for laces is necessary.”

Our editor answers that with a very big, very loud OF COURSE!!! A shoe that removes the need for laces is very necessary, and the idea of one is very exciting, for disabled people who can’t do up their own shoe laces.

When Nike finally rolls out this technology to its everyday trainers, and when the technology becomes a little more affordable than the current price of $350, disabled people who can’t do up their own shoe laces will be able to wear trendy trainers again. Gone will be the days of big, bulky velcro trainers and having to buy the same design of shoe ten times over.

These self lacing shoes will take disabled people one ‘step’ closer to independence- pun very much intended- and for that, our editor sincerely thanks their inventor.

We at Same Difference are already excitedly waiting for the rollout Nike has promised!
