anyone who has survived a winter blizzard will tell you – warm feet are essential for making through a day without getting a cold. swiss company +t wants to help with ‘+winter’ insoles that will keep the wearer warm for those long and cold winter days. equipped with wireless charging technology and five hour battery life, the inserts can fully control the temperature inside any shoe without compromising size and fit. they also employ bluetooth 4.0 connectivity to any iOS or android smartphone and through an app, users can customize and visualize the temperature.

the team at +t asked more than 100 professional athletes to get involved in the testing phase, refining the temperature adjustment and the overall thermal comfort during exercising, always making sure that neither sweat or humidity would appear.
