Salted Smart Insoles’ NEW Technology
  • Salted Smart Insoles have updated their app.
  • The new additions include a putting feature.
  • Retail price is $229.99. Now $159.99

We stumbled on Salted Smart Insoles in October of 2020 and were blown away with their technology. The Smart Insoles provide a lot of data on weight pressure, distribution and how to use the ground effectively. This could be the golden ticket to shoot lower scores for every golfer on the market.

Who Remembers Smart Salted Insoles?

A year ago, we tested the Salted Smart Insoles which are “force plates” that fit inside your golf shoes. If you’re unfamiliar with force-plate technology, imagine a mat or platform loaded with sensors that, for golf purposes, measures how your weight shifts during a swing. In simple terms, during your swing, your body weight can shift from one foot to the other. These changes in weight can be measured in percentages and, when used in the right way, can teach you how to use the ground and transfer weight correctly.

Now Salted has gone one step further with a putting system and has updated their application (which was OK at best).

What’s New?

The putting section in the updated app allows you to see real-time weight distribution. It reveals if a narrow or wider stance can help you keep weight distribution centered throughout the stroke. It might not seem like much but it’s a great addition to an already excellent product.

Previously, the application that came with the insoles in 2020 left a lot to be desired. However, the new software update is a lot more user-friendly and laid out in an easier, more functional manner. You can compare your swing or putting stroke to a Tour professional which isn’t new but it’s a great way to learn and improve your own swing/stroke.

How Can This Help Me Improve?

Everyone wants to hit the ball further. But most golfers don’t know how. A huge part of hitting dingers is by using the ground. You can do this by pushing into the ground and having the correct weight transfer while swinging.

Think of Rory Mcllroy. He’s only 5’9″ and bombs the sh*t out of it. A huge portion of his distance is because he uses the ground with every shot. What I mean is that on his backswing, he transfers about 80 percent of his weight to his right side before he starts his downswing. When he starts the transition to his left side, he pushes into the ground with both legs (“squatting”) for the most part and, at impact, he extends his legs to get as much vertical force out of the shot as possible. His balance is perfect every time and he finishes his swing with most of his weight on his left side. Take a look below to see what I’m talking about.

Everyday golfers find it hard to understand what using the ground feels like but Salted Smart Insoles provide instant feedback to understand what using the ground feels like. The insoles have great graphics that show your vertical pressure and weight transfer.

A lot of golfers tend to slice the ball off the tee. One reason for the slice is that they finish with their weight on the right side instead of the left (right-handed golfer). With the Smart Insoles, you can see instantly if your weight distribution is correct by finishing with 90 percent of your weight on the left side. This will ensure you’re getting the most out of your swing and hitting dingers.

Who Needs Salted Smart Insoles?

Everyone!

These insoles are for golfers of all abilities.  It’s really easy to learn what your weight is doing by using the visuals you get via the app. It even gives you vertical pressure when you hit the ball. All of this data is provided live but can be recorded so that you can see where in your swing or stroke your weight starts to shift. If you don’t quite understand the data, there are videos of professionals and teachers telling you what you need to do. You can also send the videos to your coach. How good is that?

Another great feature is the ability to set personal goals and get progress reports to help you reach them.

You can also use the same insoles for other aspects of your life outside of golf. For example, you can use the same insoles for lifting weights, running and correcting your balance. You just have to download the specific app and you’re off and running (or lifting or golfing or …).

Pricing and Availability

After testing the insoles the first time in 2020, along with the new application update and putter add-on, I would buy this without question. The device can really help you improve your game and start hitting dingers. Plus, for $159.99, you get incredible feedback on how to use the ground effectively. The Smart Insoles provided me with the same vertical and lateral pressure feedback as a high-end force plate.

If you’re still on the fence about purchasing these … Why? The insoles are multi-purpose and can be used for other activities. There aren’t many products that come through our HQ that catch my eye as much as these. So start using the ground like Rory Mcllroy and join the “treefiddy” club.

Get them TODAY and start using the ground effectively.

      I asked for these for Christmas, and I’d like to share with you my experience.

      In this review it says “You can compare your swing or putting stroke to a Tour professional”. Not nearly true enough. The only Tour pros’ swings available in the app are Korean pros, 5 women and 4 men. (Needless to say, this is a Korean product.) AFAIK, you cannot compare your swing to Rory’s, for example, in the SALTED app.

      That’s bad enough. Even worse is the fact that SALTED cannot explain what the numbers generated from the inserts mean. They generate Pressure Map graphics and numbers, and they generate Pressure Force graphics and numbers…but they don’t tell you what those numbers mean. They don’t – they can’t – tell you what are good numbers, what are bad numbers, what the numbers should be for each foot at setup, backswing, impact, and finish.

      I know this, because I asked them, and their reply was, “At the moment, however, our app data works as a tool that each personnel (sic) needs to apply to themselves only. We will do our best to collect the data and provide customers with clear standards in our service.” How long have these things been around, and they STILL don’t have sufficient data to tell us what the numbers mean?

      They give us the answers…but they don’t tell us what the questions are. So we have no idea what to do with the answers.

      This review says “If you don’t quite understand the data, there are videos of professionals and teachers telling you what you need to do” but why should I need to go somewhere else to get that information? I paid (ok, someone paid) a pretty penny for these things. The necessary information and feedback should be IN the SALTED app. What a royal PITA it is to be looking at the Pressure Map and Pressure Force data in the SALTED app…and then have to go to YouTube or wherever to try to find someone who’ll explain what these numbers mean? At this price, all of that information should be in the app, IMO.

      Yes, these are cool devices. But IMO, without explanations about what the numbers mean and what the numbers should be for a proper golf swing, the numbers are useless. The SALTED inserts give me data that I cannot possibly use.

      I want to clarify that my beef is ONLY with the SALTED app, NOT with this MyGolfSpy review. In re-reading my comments I think they could be perceived to be critical of MyGolfSpy’s review. That is NOT my intent.

      One of my issues with them is turning them on and reconnecting. If you leave them in your shoes they’ll run out of battery. If you turn them off, you have to charge to turn on which is not ideal if you leave them in the boot for range sessions. And once they’re on, reconnecting is very difficult and you’ll have to unpair and re-pair. Love the idea, but an on off switch would he great unless I’m totally missing that.

      Quite similar to iofit golf shoes that I got through Kickstarter (and binned) many years go…I think they may be the same company.

      Hi Harry! Just got this reply from Andy Lerch, Chief Commercial Officer at TommyBall Golf (https://mysalted.com/) & he confirmed that the insoles can be used for left-handed golfers. You can switch the dexterity in the settings of the app. Now, the buy them & ship them to ???????? from Amazon USA.

      Thanks for this. Ordered for $100! The Amazon deal on these for Canadians is another typical ripoff ($300+$56 import fee’s) and I got them for $119 international shipping included from Rock Bottom. After exchange rate it should come in around $150 Cdn. Basically $200 off.

      As I checked, they don’t provide after-sales service. nor 1 year warranty.
      I could only get a free exchange from Amazon via SALTED headquarter.

      From the previous review, you said you “ran into connection issues, crashes and replays failing to play back properly.”. Have those issues been resolved?

      These are on my list. I made a fundamental change in my game when I first got on a pressure pad with a golf lesson. I don’t think all players understand the impact of this knowledge.

      Good report Harry. Are these insoles intended to just be used at the range or fitting booth as a diagnostic tool or can one also walk the golf course and used for on course troubleshooting?

      You can use them where ever and whenever. I use them mostly on the range to get a feel of what my weight is doing. Great tool for putting also.

      If they synced these with a SwingByte or something similar they would have something really useful and something I’d buy. As a sandalone product I’ll pass.. Might be usefull for skiing but all my skiing is behind me now.

      I have been interested in these from some time and price is great, but I have yet to get an answer to whether the app can be switched to view for a left handed golfer. The only answer I got from a user was “it should work”. Absent a definitive answer, some screen shots of the app or a link to the mfg to address the question, I’ll not be a purchaser.

      Hi Paul, from what I’ve seen the app doesn’t have anything dependent on left/right handedness. The putting training is based on center of balance, and the distance training focuses on pressure against the ground.

      There is an option in the swing comparison section to flip the video so you can compare your motions with those of right handed golfers, though their library is still limited to a handful of KPGA pros. Hope this helps

      These look like a super cool idea. But I have hi arches and already like to wear pretty aggressive insole, e.g. Superfeet. The arches on these look prrety shallow.

      They are shallow and do not have any arch support unfortunately
