Will Jimmy Choo’s Voyager Boots Accelerate Adoption of Smart Shoes?

Move over smartwatches, fashion and Jimmy Choo wants to make way for smart shoes.

If there ever was a marketing gimmick with fashion tech undertones to beat, Jimmy Choo’s Voyager boots would win hands down. Just in time for those pesky Christmas Gift Guides, the shoe brand has debuted smart boots with heated insoles. Hoping to change the game, the boots could easily make Vogue’s must-have luxury item whilst at the same time tempt the fashion tribe to add them as a staple wardrobe must-have.

Made for more than just walking, the Voyager smart boots key feature is their ability to keep your feet warm come snow or rain. When worn, you can control the boot temperature through an app on your phone. Ranging from 25°c to 45°F, you will be able to battle the coldest of temperatures by merely adjusting the heat on demand. Promising to keep your tootsies toasty for up to 8 hours, should you run out of power you can always recharge your Voyager’s through a hidden USB port underneath the back collar.
