About

 

 

      

Imagine the perfect shoe.

What should it look like? What features would it have? 
What could a shoe do for you?

We decided to create this shoe. 
Connected. Heating. Stylish. Comfortable. Handcrafted in France and made out of the best materials.

Discover Lamour.

An awarded product

We are used to presenting our futuristic products on different international trade shows every year.

Last year, Lamour impressed everyone at ISPO in Munich, Germany, world’s largest trade fair for sportswear and sporting goods. The excitement for our product was so big that our then-called Warmin’ sneaker won ISPO’s award! A true consecration after all this hard work, and a real proof that what we were doing was indeed revolutionary.

  

  


The first heating shoe

The first feature we wanted to integrate into our shoe was the heating system. So many people suffer from the cold, or have blood circulation issues that could easily be solved if they had warmer feet. We worked very hard to come up with a safe, easy to use integrated heating system that could be controled via a simple app. With one click, you can heat your feet up to 113°F (45°C), and stay warm for up to 7 hours. 
We also added a built-in thermostat to regulate the shoe's temperature, to provide a stable, comfortable heat all day long.

Connected 

Of course, the perfect shoe had to be innovative in every way.
For those who want to track their day, check their activities or simply become more aware of their movements, Lamour shoes offer a very accurate and innovative tracker. In addition to collecting basic information on your activity (calories burned, steps and distance walked) our Lamour offer a complete 3D analysis of your walk. 

   

   

More than a tracker, a 3D analyzer

Lamour isn't just a tracking device that will tell you how many calories you've burned or how many steps you've walked. We went further than this. 
In addition to the very accurate tracker, our Lamour are able to analyze your walks or runs and give you information and personalized advices on your posture and strides: which part of your feet hits the ground first? Are you more likely to press down on the inner or outer part of your foot? Does it present any risk of injuries or is it a hinder to better performances? 

Everything you could look for will be on our app.     

 

 

 
   
Lamour brings style, comfort and warmth to your life. By doing so, our smart sneakers also reduce your risks of getting winter diseases. A real must have!

 

 

How does it work?

We have been able to introduce electronics into the shoe, including a rechargeable battery. Basically, a heat-pad inside the front part of the shoe transforms energy from the battery into heat. 

   
The temperature is set and managed by the user via our dedicated free smartphone application. A built in thermostat regulates the overall temperature of each shoe and never exceeds the temperature set-up for your comfort and safety. By using our App, you can also easily track your daily activity and analyze your walk. To charge them, simply use our USB cable!

 

   
   

A premium product, handmade in France

At Digitsole, we believe the future of fashion lies in technology. That’s why we made it our mission to create the ultimate shoe: a sleek, comfortable and connected sneaker. 

 

 

 
In addition to having the best technology on the market, we wanted our Lamour to have the best design and quality. As a French company, we had to put France’s know-how and elegance at the heart of our Lamour, which is why we decided to have them hand-made, in France, using premium quality leather.

To do so, we established our production in Nancy, near our offices.

    

 


The factory we chose is one of the last expert in handmade leather shoes in France, making it an obvious choice for us. We worked together with the manufacturer, each step of the way, to make sure everything would be perfect. From the choice of the materials to their assembly, we did our best to create the perfect shoe down to the finest detail.

   

  

   

   

Why Lamour?

The Lamour sneakers were born in our offices in Nancy, France. There, we have the chance to be located in one of the most beautiful Square in Europe: Place Stanislas. Listed as a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO, this pedestrian square is mostly famous for its style and gildings, very representative of the Classic French architecture. As lovers of beautiful, rich designs, we couldn't miss out on this opportunity to pay a tribute to one of its creator: Jean Lamour. 
  
Place Stanislas in Nancy

Jean-Baptiste Lamour was a famous locksmith and blacksmith, born and raised in Nancy, just like our products. He is the artisan of the beautiful gildings that made our Place's fame, and is still very dear to many Nancéiens's heart. We wanted our shoes to represent this part of us; to be inspired by History, and our story. We thought naming our innovative shoes after this man whom had left an such an important mark could only be a good omen. In addition to naming our sneakers after him, we decided to share his work with the rest of the world by including his famous flower gilding on our outsole.

Features

  
We use Bluetooth 4.0, which works with most iOS and Android phones. Lamour is extremely intuitive and interactive allowing the person to both adjust temperature and monitor their activity.     
  

   

  

With the built-in battery, you can individually warm each foot to a maximum of 113° F (45° C). Warmth is adjusted via our app with a simple tap on your smartphone.

We have incorporated the latest generation of tracking technology into our sneakers. With the built-in accelerometer you can keep precise count of not only the number of steps, but also the distance walked and calories burned. All this is calculated within a reliable pedometer.

Our snearkers offer the ultimate analysis of your activity: from an examination of your stride to the evalutation of your speed, endurance, fatigue level and injury risks, Lamour will give you more numerous and accurate data than any other device on the market.

Lamour Sneakers are truly smart devices. As one example, we incorporated a thermostat in the shoe so that when the shoe reaches the pre-determined temperature, the app turns off - therefore increasing battery life. It turns back on once the temperature drops below 4° F from the pre-set number. 
   

    

When we designed Lamour, comfort was a priority. We used our 20 years experience in the footwear industry to come up with a sneaker that is both fashionable and comfortable. Thanks to its micro-cellular polymer sole, the shoe is extremely light and offers optimum cushioning.
   


  

Our ultimate goal was to combine the French esthetic and know-how with our innovative technology.
France is well known for its fashion and elegance; we incorporated these values into a comfortable, warming shoe. We brought together shoe designers and technology innovators to introduce new age technology in a good looking sneaker.
 We use premium quality soft leather to provide cozy fitting and elegance.

Staying in line with the majority of users globally, Digitsole has designed an app and platform compatible with both iOS and Android. 
  

    

Lamour is rated at IPx6 water resistant and is designed to operate in a heavy splashing and rain situation.

    
  

Our Lamour incorporates a long life Lithium Ion battery in each shoe, individually rechargeable. Battery life per charge depends on the ambient temperature as the shoes will adapt, but one can expect 5 to 7 hours of heating, and at least 500 full charges.

   
    

Each pair comes with a dual charging device that has a micro USB connector. Fully charging each pair takes approximately 2 hours.

Who is it for?

Lamour can satisfy anyone, from city commuters to people working outside, soccer moms or simply comfort and fashion lovers.
Indeed, thanks to its innovative technologies and heating system, Lamour finds an obvious audience among tech enthusiasts and people suffering from the cold, but first and foremost, Lamour is a high-end, fashionable shoe.

 

 


An acknowledged brand

For the third year in a row, Digitsole presented its reinvented footwear to Las Vegas’ Consumer Electronic Show (CES), last January. Thanks to our hard work and innovative spirit, we won the CES Award in the Sport, Fitness and Biotech category! This year more than ever, we could see how excited people were about our technology, and welcomed quite a lot of visitors on our booth…

  

A Unique Product


 
No other product on the market offers the features and quality of Lamour. From the uniquely designed app to the ability to control the heat of your shoes individually along with analyzing your stride in 3D, tracking your footsteps, calories and measuring your distance, Lamour truly is unique in the footwear and the wearables markets. The use of high quality materials in the design and French know-how in their conception set this shoe apart from any other. Our ultimate goal is to combine the elegance of the French culture with the innovation of French Technology.

Why investing in Lamour?

It was less than 20 years ago when the first mobile phone appeared but less than 10 years ago when cell technology transitioned into a Smartphone. This was one of the biggest revolutions in the electronic industry.
Today the shoe market represents 20 billion pairs of shoes sold each year and we believe that in five years 5% of the shoes sold will be connected. Think about it: if we can capture just a portion of that market we will have a huge success. And you can be a part of it.
We are commercially launching the first connected and heating shoe into the marketplace. It is a huge revolution in the footwear industry. We want to give you, as early adopter of connected footwear, the opportunity to be the first to participate in this revolution. With your support and backing, we can take the developed technology we have completed to this point and apply it in a practical, yet fashionable footwear product. You will not only be proud to own a pair of Lamour for their design and features, but more importantly because it shows that you represent and take part in a true revolution in footwear design.

Risks and challenges

We have worked very hard to ensure that we are using the best quality manufactured products in the design of our connected footwear. With several trusted partners in France, we are confident in the quality and craftsmanship that goes into every single pair of Lamour Sneakers. One of the biggest challenges was to integrate electronics into our unique footwear. As a result we had to carefully manage the following risks:
- Insure that dust and moisture does not penetrate the electronics.
- Provide a shoe that is extremely comfortable, regardless of the technology included inside.
- Design a shoe that can resist the shock associated with walking and jumping.
