When it comes to heated insoles for your feet, your options are usually standard insoles that retain heat or battery-powered insoles that require you to carry around a special remote just to control them. 

The +t development team in Switzerland saw an opportunity for you to live a happier, better life, through the power of technology. A life where the warmth of your feet was controlled via your phone, and you never had to plug in your insoles to charge. A world with +Winter insoles.

+Winter insoles are wireless-charging, smartphone-connected, heated insoles that allow you to pick the precise temperature that comfort your tootsies. They’re splashproof, ergonomic, and incredibly thin, allowing them to fit into any shoe, boot, ice skate, or footwear you can think of.

Thanks to a long battery life and a built-in accelerometer, the +Winter insoles don’t require your smartphone to work, turning themselves on when they notice you’re walking. If you have your smartphone with you, the insole’s app makes it simple to adjust their temperature to meet your needs as you transition from inside to outdoors throughout the day.

When it comes time to charge your insoles, simply place them upon the included wireless charging deck when you get home. No plugging in your insoles required. Just drop them on the charger and go on with your evening. Their built-in battery lasts up to 5 hours, so if you’re only activating them when you’re walking around outside, you should make a charge last a few days.

+Winter insoles are currently available at the +t store for the European market, but it’s still working on raising enough money to start sales in the U.S. To help meet that goal, the company has launched a Kickstarter, hoping to raise $68,915 to launch sales in the U.S. With 26 days to go in the campaign, the company has already raised $20,099 of that goal, as of this writing. It’s looking like a bright future for warm toes in America.

If you’re still not sold, watch this video. These will make someone’s future hunting trips far more pleasant.
