This kid might be onto something. How many of us have tennis shoes we never tie?

Stupid troll is stupid.

There is no release button, and there is no easy way to get them off.

Just because it looks cool doesn`t mean it works.

These were in Back to the Future 2! Think they were Nike shoes as well...
Well that was supposed to be in 2015, so I guess we`re one step closer to looking like they thought we would.

>>> ... and just how are you supposed to get them off?

Jesus fudgecing Christ are you an idiot or something? The guy created something like that and you think he`s too drating stupid to think of a solution to that problem? All it takes is a god damned release button and the laces will loosen. God damned ignorant Canadian. You think you`re so drating bright because you saw a potential problem in a design. And you think that since you`re the bright one that no one else would see an issue like that? How conceited can you be? Seriously! Even if the guy/gal that made them was too stupid to see it before they tried it out for the first time, they`d see the issue when they try to take the shoe off.

"HOLY poo! MY FEET ARE ETERNALLY STUCK IN THESE SHOES!!!! IF ONLY THERE WERE THINGS CALLED BUTTONS THAT I COULD PUT ON THIS INFERNAL THING THAT WOULD REVERSE THE MOTOR IN THE SOLE OF THE SHOE! SADLY, BUTTONS ARE ONLY A DREAM IN THE MIND OF A MADMAN!"

@LazyMe484 Have you ever had a pair of shoes on and just kicked them off without untying them? I have. It`s not hard to do because they`re not super glued to your feet.

What`s next, a typewriter that types for itself or an electronic, self-inserting floppy disk machine? Useless.

you know what, it`s not about being lazy, it`s about convenience. no one`s lazy because they own a food processor or a chopper instead of using a knife, you`re not lazy because you drive the seven miles to work instead of hoofing it.

that said, while a cool invention, I just don`t see it being worth an extra 2-5 bucks to have my shoes auto tie

Thats cool in theory, but in reality some people like shoes to be loose, some like it really tight, at least need a tension control!

My sister just got a new pair of Callaway golf shoes and they are sort of like this lace-wise. They have a knob on the back of the heel and you just turn it to loosen/tighten the laces.

I mad jealous of them.

ok so there was no bulky equiptment but the shoes themselves were bulky. I wonder how big the hidden stuff has to be. can this device be hidden in the sole of a smaller shoe.
