Market Need

Cyberheels by LITERALLY NEED is crafting footwear that offers more than comfort and style.

The potential of AI to improve health and wellbeing is huge, but current solutions aren’t considering the safety of such devices. The team behind Cyberheels plan to focus not just on creating the right product, but on educating wearers too.


The project envisions a future where our footwear becomes our first line of
digital protection. By developing smart shoes embedded with cutting-edge IoT technology, the product can monitor our digital presence, protect our data and enhance our overall well being.

The team raise awareness about the vital connection between cybersecurity
and digital-physical wellbeing.

With experience in a range of occupational backgrounds, the team
can reach multiple markets – bridging the gap between cybersecurity and the fashion world.
