What’s the best way to keep feet warm?
If your feet sometimes feel like blocks of ice, try using a heated foot warmer of some sort. There are foot warmer socks, disposable feet warmer, and microwavable options. Additionally, there non electric foot warmers like neoprene toe covers. The best foot warmers depend on your needs and the activities you’ll be pursuing while using them.
Neoprene Foot Warmers
21C 1.5mm Neoprene Toe Warmers (Wear Inside Shoes) 2 Pairs by 21C
These reusable toe warmers are made out of neoprene, the same stuff that’s used for scuba diving suits. Actually, they work the same way: they keep body heat in. This style of toe warmer is designed to be worn inside your shoes. You can wear them under or over socks. They work best inside athletic shoes, ski boots, and slippers. They are easy to wash (make sure you use cold water, hang dry, and follow the instructions provided) and this package comes with two pairs. These toe warmers also come in 2 sizes to help you get a good fit.
Hot Sockee – Neoprene Toe Warmers – Worn Inside Shoes or Boots – 3 Sizes
Another reusable neoprene option, except this company offers 3 sizes. While some users complained their feet ended up sweating and getting even colder, overall most users were happy with these toe warmers. These make shoes more wind resistant and runners, in particular, loved them. The Hot Sockee brand of toe warmers can also be used with disposable warmers for even more heat. Additionally, they can be used inside swimming fins to minimize chafing. Go from skiing to scuba with neoprene toe warmers!
Foot Warmer Socks
Being from a Midwestern US state, I don’t know how this is true: I’ve never had a pair of heated socks. People use them for all sorts of outdoor activities and they are also useful for those with poor circulation.
Autocastle Rechargeable Electric Heated Socks
These heated socks are rechargeable and come with three heat settings. There is a pocket at the top of each sock that holds the cords and battery. This is also where the control buttons are located. The company says these socks are great for climbing, hiking, skiing, running, and other winter activities. Socks like this will also benefit those with poor circulation or those who always have cold feet. These socks are also a great gift for travelers who are going to enjoy some winter destinations.
Please read the instructions thoroughly before washing. Also, remove the battery pack before washing.
Upgraded Heated Socks,7.4V 2200MAH by Snow Deer
These socks also have a pocket at the top for the heating element controls. The sock is 80% cotton, 12% polyester, and 8% elastane. It has a padded reinforced heal and toe, just like a regular sock. The controller has 3 heat settings and the company says the should warm for 2 and half to 6 hours (it depends on the setting used).
As always, thoroughly read the instructions before washing. Also, remove the battery pack before washing.
Disposable Foot warmers
HotHands Insole Foot Warmers
These nifty little air activated heat packs are great in a pinch. They stick to your shoe and are supposed to last for a full day. Many reviewers agreed. However, some reviewers say that they actually only last an hour. The only other complaint is that they are small for the average adult foot size.
The company states the ingredients won’t harm the environment. Please dispose of these properly.
HotHands Toe Warmers (5 Pair)
These disposable air activated heat packs for your toes work really well to keep your tootsies warm. Though, some reviewers state they get too hot. Others say they don’t get warm. I suggest testing a pair as soon as possible and return them if they aren’t heating.
Microwave Foot Warmers
Heating Pad – Organic Flaxseed (Unscented)
This is a versatile product. It isn’t something you can use while being outside. However, it does travel easily in your luggage. I heat mine in the microwave before going to bed during the winter months and use it to keep my feet warm. Even in Mexico! We live in the mountains and it gets chilly at night. Without any heat, the house stays quite cool. I’m glad I brought my foot warmer with me.
