In my 15 years as a footwear designer I have never seen footwear include such sophisticated technical package. Creating a design to incorporate such a carefully hidden mechanized system so precisely with almost no margin for error was more like applying the automotive process to footwear.
For a small group of friends to achieve what so many giants in the industry have been attempting for years, shows just how much can be achieved in this world. But what I think really sets Powerlace apart from other brands, is that like the automotive industry their innovation is ingenious, striking the perfect balance between simplicity, performance, reliability and industrialization.
"Powerlace is the new frontier in footwear".
