Armstrong & Getty: Self-Lacing Shoes Tripped-Up by Bugs w/ Geoffrey Fowler

Earlier this year Nike introduced a pair of self-lacing shoes–because you obviously “need an app for that”.

The new kicks are connected to the internet, and the wearer uses an app to lace-’em-up. But guess what–there was a glitch that made them virtually unwearable!

Washington Post (Bay Area-based) Technology Columnist Geoffrey Fowler joined Armstrong & Getty to provide all the details about why “internet connected shoes” may not be such a great idea.
