SKCNI’s Freelock System hails from Korea, and while it’s not exactly an example of self tying wireless shoelaces Back To The Future style, it’s different enough from normal shoelaces for us no notice.

The system has a dial that, when turns, tightens or loosens the laces. It takes between one and two turns to tighten or loosen it fully.

How durable is such a system? Probably nowhere near as durable as a good pair of shoelaces tied correctly, though I may be proven wrong and this will turn out to be the future of athletics. But that’s not too likely.
