Our Story

Our Mission

We strive to empower people to be active, propel themselves in life, and keep moving forward!

Our Vision

We aspire to be the most innovative and progressive center for footwear development in the industry by consistently introducing biomechanics-inspired products that complement the body's natural movements.

Our Values

The beginnings

Frédérick Labbé founded Powerlace with a fierce ambition to create the world's first auto-lacing shoe activated by bodyweight. His years of relentless development and comprehensive testing paid off when his invention was granted an international patent in 2015. The project attracted fresh talent and the team is now more determined than ever to push boundaries, spark innovation and unleash the full potential of footwear technology.

The Powerlace team

Our team is composed of creative footwear enthusiasts with a passion for innovation. We approach design with a hands-on mentality, constantly prototyping and iterating until we achieve the perfect balance of form and function. Our team is open-minded and always thinking outside the box, exploring cutting-edge technology and materials to push the boundaries of what's possible in the footwear industry.
