About this project
Everybody has suffered from cold feet, whether on their way to work, while walking, skiing, hiking, or even riding their bike or motorcycle.
What if you could control the temperature of your shoes with a simple click on your smartphone and also keep track of the distance you have walked and calories burned?
Thanks to Digitsole, this is now possible.
And there's more here!
What is Digitsole?
Digitsole is the first connected, interactive, heated insole that can be controlled via your smartphone. This innovative foot product is designed for your health and comfort. Available on Android and iOS, the dedicated Digitsole app is connected to your insole with Bluetooth 4.0 so you can warm your feet and track your day with one easy click.
Once you have connected your insoles with the application, the warm up function can be activated with the on/off button on the app screen. You can then adjust the temperature of each of your insoles separately by adjusting the slide temperature bar up or down. This unique independent adjustment allows you to get the perfect temperature setting for each of your feet. Once the temperature of the insole drops below the preset setting, the built-in thermostat adjusts to the pre-determined temperature.
By entering your weight and height when you first log onto the dedicated app, you can keep track of how many calories you’ve burned while wearing Digitsole. Thanks to the placement of our sensor system in the insole, our tracking is much more precise and efficient than the typical tracker wristbands and other devices that you could find in the market.
Digitsole is at the forefront of the new generation of connected products.
How easy is it to use?
Functions of Digitsole
Warm your feet - Connect your insoles with the app to access the warm up function and activate heat. You can then adjust the temperature of each of your insoles separately by adjusting the slide temperature bar up or down.
Track your day - Through the Digitsole app you can track how many steps you take during the day, the distance walked as well as the altitude.
Calories burned - Check how many calories you’ve burned throughout the day via the app.
If we are lucky enough to hit our funding goal, our Digitsole engineers will work on adding additional functions to the app.
Where can I use Digitsole?
We understand the need to have more than one pair of shoes in our lives! This is why we have designed Digitsole to be thin, very comfortable and easy to place in most shoe types so you only need one pair.
Digitsole can be used in just about any shoe, replacing your original insole. So, you can enjoy warm feet whatever you’re doing.
With only one pair of Digitsole all your shoes can now be connected.
Key features of Digitsole
Shock Heel System - The Poron cushion placed at the back of the insole softens the shock and spreads the vibrations of the foot associated with walking and running
Flex Zone Section - Flexible section placed near the toe box to optimize the natural movement of your feet
Arch Support Section - Additional support in the arch helps with balance and posture
What is Digitsole made of?
The Digitsole platform is moulded from Neotech, which is excellent for controlling vibrations and is an extremely lightweight material developed exclusively by Digitsole engineers.
The next layer of the insole consists of Poron which has superior shock absorbing characteristics. The Poron TX3 layer is covered with high-quality Soft Touch PU micro-fiber, which spreads the heat in an optimal way.
With your help and backing, the Digitsole design team will update Digitsole products with the three items noted below:
* $100,000 stretch goal :
1. Dual Insole Charging - Our design team has listened to your feedback regarding charging each insole individually and that charging both insoles at the same time would be far more convenient. This is why we would like to offer a dual charger cable that splits in two parts. This update would allow consumers the ability to charge both your insoles at the same time.
2. Neotech+ - A new generation of foam material. Neotech+ is even lighter than our current Neotech and offers better isolation of heat. This update would increase heat efficiency by 20%.
3. Electronic Component Upgrade – currently our electronic package uses several metallic components. Our desire is to manufacture several of these key components of Polycarbonate/ABS materials. The net result is an additional savings of 15% in weight without a loss of efficiency.
* $200,000 stretch goal:
With your help and backing, the Digitsole design team will update our water-resistant technology to water-proof technology. With this updated design, Digitsole can be used is the harshest of environments.
* $400,000 stretch goal:
The Digitsole design team will update our charging system to a QI Induction Technology wireless charger. With this updated design, wireless charging will come to Digitsole products as a truly revolutionary innovation.

Risks and challenges
We understand that there are always risks and challenges when developing a new product. At this stage of production, most of the quality risks have been eliminated as we have already rigorously tested the second generation of Digitsole prototypes.
Now we are concentrating on two big challenges. The first one is to improve our battery system. While Digitsole works really well now, we'd like it to be even more efficient! The second one is to further miniaturize the whole electronic system.
From the beginning of this campaign until delivery we will keep you all updated with our work and progress. If there are any unexpected issues or delays we promise to inform you and handle it in full transparency.
With your help we can overcome these challenges to create the best Digitsole. Thank you for your support!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
I just placed an order but I didn't have the chance to choose a size or to fill in a delivery address, what can I do?
Don't worry, everything is okay! We'll send a survey at the end of the campaign so that you can fill in all the information we need to send your Digitsoles!
Digitsole is available for men : From 8 to 13
And for women from 6 to 10
European sizes are available from 36 to 46
The average retail price would be around 190$ per pair. That said, the current Kickstarter prices for Digitsole appear alongside the backing levels in the right column. Our Kickstarter supporters are definitely getting special treatment for supporting us!
Shipping will be free within the Continental United States and each pledge level details the international shipping rates.
Yes, shipping will be added onto the amount you pledge.
We are working hard to prepare our supply chain and manufacturing operations to make sure you get your Digitsole(s) as soon as possible. Each tier description includes a projected delivery date. We have included Christmas delivery options so check those out!
The Digitsole works with iOS and Android and we're currently working on a Windows Phone App. Your phone just need to be compatible with Bluetooth 4.0.
All the specifications of Digitsole can be found above!
It takes less than a minute to reach your desired temperature, depending on the temperature outside.
The insoles are water-resistant that means they are resistant to humidity and a certain amount of water (such as perspiration). You will not be able to put your insoles in water or a washing machine.
You can use a damp sponge to gently remove the dust from the insoles.
Digitsole has been designed to fit in your normal shoe in replacement of the former insole, so you won’t need to buy bigger shoe sizes.
The standard Digitsole will be available in black. Also, some pledge levels offer customized Digitsole so you will be able to choose the color of your insole.
It depends on the conditions you are using them in but ranges from 7 hours to several days. Your Digitsole will last up to 7-8 hours with heavy use, for example if it is very cold and you have the temperature turned up all day.
In each box you will find a USB cable with the adapter charger depending on your country so you won’t have to worry about the voltage.
The range of the bluetooth connectivity is up to 16ft. (5 meters)
Yes you can order more than one pair of Digitsole. For instance, you can get two, five or even ten pairs of Digitsole. For more information, have a quick look at our pledges.
We have a global replacement warranty of twelve months after invoicing the insoles.
For USA and other Northern and Southern American countries we have a warehouse and a customer service located in California (Carlsbad). For other countries we will manage everything from our office in Europe.
The second generation of Digitsole prototypes are already done and work perfectly. We are now focusing on the production chain organization and opening the sizes mould.
Our team is also working on the improvement of the application (on both iOS and Android) in order to offer more functions and to make it more user-friendly.
The Digitsole is a registered trademark and with international registered patents.
Don’t worry, we have no access at all to your personal information.
If the project is successfully funded, your card will be charged when the project reaches its funding deadline. If the project does not reach its funding goal, your card is never charged. You will not be charged until the project you backed has ended successfully.
We are very excited to have international backers and everything has been planned to get your support. Once you have registered for an Amazon payments account, you’ll be able to back us through Kickstarter. We are also pleased to have worked out deals with major shipping providers to give to international backers competitive rates.
