France based insole company Digitsole, is seeking to bring footwear into the digital age with the “First Connected and Heating Shoe.” The company showcased the new shoes at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas earlier this month, as well as ISPO and won an award in the “Footwear Outdoor” category.

The smart insoles let users connect to their shoes via a Smartphone app, which provides a variety of features including temperature control. By connecting to the app, the user is able to control the temperature of their shoes, helping to stay warm and dry in the cold.

These soles also track steps taken, and by feeding information on the user's height and weight the application calculates calories burned as well. Since the step counter is located in the insole itself it provides more accurate results than wrist based trackers.

Digitsole first introduced their high tech insoles in 2014. The insoles, which were developed with the help of Zorn-Tech, provide a step counter, calorie tracker, and also heating capabilities, according to a report on www.sporttechie.com.

These insoles can be put into almost any shoes such as work boots, running shoes, snow boots, ski boots etc., and could be very useful to those who suffer from cold feet. However for the time being, if you are heating your shoes the battery only lasts for around six hours. The USB powered charge can last over a day if the soles are not being used to heat your feet and are currently being sold online in Europe and North America. (SH)
