We’ve heard about connected clothing as the next phase of wearables, but a truly connected outfit isn’t complete without the right shoes. Smart shoe manufacturer Digitsole is on the scene at CES 2017 with its insole and high-heel prototypes to offer a glimpse into the next generation of footwear.
Like most wearable tech, its flagship shoe, the Smartshoe 001, tracks steps and calories burned, but adds functionality that controls your shoe’s climate, tightness, and measures shock absorption. The shoes are wireless, syncing data via Bluetooth and charging via induction.
For those who prefer more formal footwear, they also have a pump-style product that has an adjustable heel, as well as climate control making the transition from workday to nightlife a little smoother.
