WARMING SHOES / shoes

WARMING SHOES
WARMING SHOES

According to relevant research, the blood circulation of sole of baby's feet is poor. Baby needs enough heat, otherwise their feet may frostbite severely. We designed a pair of smart shoes for babies to withstand the cold."Warming Shoes" do not rely on electrical heating, instead they make use of solar energy. With a special material called Supersaturated Sodium Acetate, "Warming Shoes" can absorb, store and release energy easily. Our design uses clean energy which is environment friendly.
