Heated Insoles For Staying Comfortable in the Coldest Weather

Updated on September 27, 2011

The Answer to Cold Feet

Do you have cold feet? Whether you like to ski, snowboard, ice skate, snowmobile, go out on your bike, or something else during the winter, cold feet and toes are likely to be the reason you have to stop. Heated insoles can solve this problem.

They're also great for those who have to work outdoors all day no matter what the thermometer might say. They even benefit many people who have cold feet due to circulation problems.

On this page, you will find a variety of heated insoles from which to choose. Some aren't powered, they use thermal barriers to protect against heat loss or natural materials to generate heat. Others are powered by batteries. Either way, one is sure to help you get through the coldest part of the year.

A Few Things to Remember

Many heated insoles have wires in them. In some instances, you can feel these wires. This becomes most evident if you walk a great deal. If you are sensitive to this, then finding ones that use a non-electric source of heating is the better option.

Also remember that any time you add a sock or an insole to your shoe, it will take up space. You will need to be sure you have enough room in your boot or shoe to allow for the insole to fit comfortably.


Perfect for those who are active, Tosti-Toes heated insoles fit into a pair of ice skates, ski boots, or regular boots and shoes. One side has adhesive backing which adheres to your socks to keep them in place throughout the day. They use no wires or batteries, only natural materials such as iron powder, water, salt, activated charcoal, and wood fiber. Once exposed to air, a fast oxidation process creates heat to keep your feet warm.

Tosti-Toes will provide 5 hours of 100 degree Fahrenheit warmth. They are non-toxic, non-flammable, and environmentally friendly. They're disposable and come in boxes of 40 or 16 pairs and will last for up to 6 years while sealed. These insoles are intended for use during activity, not for those who will be sedentary.

Venture Boot

These heated insoles are intended to be used over and over again. They are a 12V insole that plugs into a Venture Pant Liner which is available separately (S, M, L, and XL sizes available)

They are constructed with PU foam and have a contoured design that provides superior support and shock absorption in addition to the heat needed on cold days.

Polar Wrap Toasty Feet

While these aren't truly heated insoles, they do keep your feet at a comfortable temperature in cold or hot temperatures by preventing both heat/cold gain and loss. They are designed using NASA temperature control technology/nanotechnology. Rather than providing heat, they insulate your feet using a thermal barrier and protect them from extreme temperatures.

They are ultra-thin and when trimmed, can fit into any shoe or boot.

Venture Heated Insoles

This pair of Venture heated insoles provides heat for the top half of the foot, your toes. This comfortable, contoured insole replaces the regular insole in your shoe or boot. It plugs into the power pack which attaches to the edge of your work boot, snowboard, or ski. Then you get 6 hours of heat for your feet.

It comes with a rechargeable lithium battery.

Grabber Warmers

These insoles generate warmth for your feet as soon as they are exposed to the air. Unlike many of the other options available, these require no wires and no batteries. They are thin and comfortable and can be worn in shoes or boots.

These insoles use natural materials and are environmentally friendly. They are non-toxic and non-combustible. They even help reduce sweat and foot odor. This is a box of 3 pairs.


Covered in leather for breathability, these heated insoles operate on a Lithium Ion power pack and attach with clips or a velcro strap. They provide 5 to 7 hours of heat per charge. The heated panels self-regulate, maintaining a temperaure of approximately 111 degrees Fahrenheit.

This pair comes with two power packs and one charger.

Hotronic FootWarmer

These heated insoles from Hotronic can be used in any type of footwear. The 4 NiMH batteries provide the necessary power that will last for hours. The oval heating elements provide full coverage of the toes and the included self adhesive fabric covers and strips will keep them in place.

There are four settings that users can adjust with the push of a button to get the heat they want and you always know when they are on and how they are currently set via the LED lights. Charging your heated insoles takes less than three hours and you can use them anywhere as they come with a global adapter.

      This blog is so interesting. I must say that at first I thought it would be a waste of time, but after reading your post was impressed with its quality. I just hope that over time you continue maintaining the same quality, and most of the same passion at the time of writing.safemeds

      These heated insoles are great. I don't know why but most of the times I want my feet to always feel warm. Sometimes I even wear soft shoes inside the house instead of slippers so my entire feet will be covered.

      Ooooh I have used these little heated insert thingys plenty of times when I know I'm going to be walking my dogs far in the cold. They are WONDERfUL! However..I did not know that they make entire insole warmers. This is definitely a "must try" for this winter for sure!

      Thanks for the info. I am bookmarking this hub so I can refer back when winter sets in. It snowed in Georgia last year, I will probably need a pair.
