A word from the President – Karim Oumnia

"10 years ago, the first Smartphones were born. They revolutionized the communication industry and replaced regular phones.
Today, we’re creating the Smartshoes, which will eventually replace nowadays’ shoes.

Why? We are convinced that shoes will not only be used to protect our feet anymore, but will also bring more comfort (warm up or cool down your feet...), detect fatigue and prevent you from getting injured during your sports or professional activities (back pain, joints issues etc.). Even more than that, they will allow you to detect diseases.

The Smartshoe isn’t a simple evolution, it's a true Revolution.”


❝ The first time I thought about the Digitsole was when a longstanding old French company specialized in hunting products  asked me as an engineer to help them create a shoes collection. They were looking for a real innovation to launch its hunting shoes collection; but after days of brainstorming in their office, nothing very significant came up.

Then, the CEO invited me to go hunting. And this was my first time ever. It was in March in the center of France and of course, it was very chilly. All the hunters had already been waiting in the forest for over three hours. They were freezing. When I arrived there, it took me less than 5 minutes to have a terrible feeling of frozen feet and toes and I immediately asked the CEO to drive me back home. He said that he would not drive me back until I had found the idea. I had no other choice but to think quickly and told him without any conviction that I could design a heating shoe that could be controlled with a remote. I really didn't really know how to do it, but I was freezing and I just wanted to go back!

A few weeks later, I designed a heating sole that was powered with a simple battery. That was in 2006. The first heating insole was created! Since the creation of the connectivity, I was obsessed by the idea of connecting this heating insole. Today, it's done... ❞
