Heated Socks, Foot Warmers and HeatMax ToastiToes

Updated on November 23, 2015

Heated Socks Keep Your Feet Toasty Warm

Battery Powered Heated Socks and Socks that use heated pad inserts to keep your feet warm and toasty can make cold, freezing temperatures outside more tolerable.

I'm not sure about you, but when my toes gets cold and numb feeling it makes my whole body shiver and makes outdoor tasks almost unbearable.

But if you keep your feet nice and warm, you don't notice the cold as much and you are able to brave the weather.

Layering of clothes can add warmth to your body but it's hard to layer sock upon sock and still fit into your shoes or boots.

That's where heated socks come in.

Heat Holders Thermal Socks Perfect For Winter Sports - Available in Men's, Womens and Children's Sizes

HeatHolder socks keep your feet warm and dry by using warm weave yarns that keep your feet warm without being overly bulky and also wick away moisture then they add additional cushioning with a soft fleece lining.

What I really like about them is that unlike many other winter weight socks HeatHolder socks feel like soft cushioned socks and not scratchy like many wool products. You will also find that you can still wear your shoes and boots without feeling as though your toes are getting squished.

While I like to wear them when I'm out shoveling snow and doing around the town type of tasks, these socks are great if you are into sports like skiing, snowboarding and ice skating.

These socks are available in sizes and colors that will make your whole family happy.


Is this how you keep your feet warm?

HeatMax Heated Socks and Toastie Toes Foot Warmers

HeatMax heated socks have a built in pouch where you slip in Toastie Toes warmers. Each warming pack generates warmth for approximately 5 hours.

There are several different sizes of refill packs available.

Remember that the HeatMax heated socks need a Toastie Toes or insole warmer pack in order to generate heat. The socks alone do not generate heat.

Electric Heated Socks For Hunting, Camping, Fishing and Playing

While some heated socks use a small disposable single use packet which heats up to keep your feet warm, this pair of battery heated socks uses battery power to allow you to use the socks for the time frame you need.

They are perfect when you don't want to use one of the single use packets because you only need warmth for a few hours and unlike the packet socks, these heated socks give warmth throughout the sock not just in one area.

In addition to using these socks outdoors, they are perfect in the morning when the floor is cold and in the evening when you are watching television and your toes start to get cold.

Electric Heated Socks For Chronically Cold Feet provide relief from the discomfort of cold feet caused by poor circulation due to Arthritis, Cerebral Palsy, Diabetes, Muscular Dystrophy, Multiple Sclerosis, or cold climates.

Just remember that each sock does require 1 D cell battery which can add weight to the sock and you must also consider the battery life.

If you do choose to go with battery powered socks you may want to opt for rechargeable ones.


Are you looking for heated socks for a man, woman or?

Microwaveable Comfort Booties

Now these are a sweet little luxury. I don't know if you have a pair already but if you don't, you owe it to yourself to get one.

They are soft and oh, so toasty. Just the perfect treat after a long day at work or being outside in the cold.

They are not meant to keep your feet warm on cold days like the heated sock and foot warmers, but more as a spa or relaxation treat when you're inside wanting to relax.

I always feel pampered when I put them on. hat I like to do is to put moisturizer on my feet, clip on a pair of socks then put on the booties for a super luxurious treat.

In addition to comforting heat, these booties also have the aromatic and soothing scents of clove, cinnamon, and eucalyptus for added relaxation.

The scent is very strong but if you are wearing them in a smaller room such as a bedroom, if you wear them then leave the room, then reenter you can smell the relaxing fragrance all around you. Just love them!


Keep Your Feet Toasty Warm

When you need extra warmth for a day out in the snow or chilling temperatures these foot warmers can be a "life saver".

We keep a pack in the car during the winter just in case. While many people believe that their car will never break down or get stuck in the snow that may be true but you never know what else will happen.

If you do keep a pack in your car remember to replace them every year as they can stop working if they are more than 2 years or so old.

We test one at the beginning of the winter so we know if we are set for the winter or need to stock up.

The one thing that I dread about winter ( and I do love winter) is that my feet get so cold.

It didn't always bother me but I find that as I am getting older my feet appear to be getting colder. My doctor says that is has to do with poorer circulation as we get older.

These toe warmer give just enough heat to keep my feet comfortably warm while not getting too hot.

The warmth stays for hours.

Living in the Rocky Mountains has taught us to be prepared when driving in the winter. The roads can be dry and clear when you head on out to go shopping or to see a movie and when you get out there could be a foot of snow..

In out car we always carry an emergency bag an in it we have hand and foot warmers, water, snacks, 2 blankets, 2 pillows and 2 pairs of Yaktrax. Our bag doesn't take up much room but even though it has only been needed once it was a lifesaver.

Each season we check it over and replace any items that need it so that we are prepared as soon as the air turns chilly.


Please consult a doctor before using heated socks if the user has any medical conditions, such as diabetes, phlebitis or neurological/circulatory problems or if the user is unable to remove the socks on their own.

Do you work outdoors or play outdoors in the winter?

      Man, this lens really strikes a chord with me right now. I'm so tired of being cold in this Canadian winter. Can't wait till summer gets here.

      @anonymous: Yesterday I told my brother (who lives on Kauai) that our temps in the morning the last few days were 0,3, 1, 5, 2, 0, -2 and the highs for the day were all under 15, he laughed and emailed me back a few photos of people enjoying the warm sun yesterday. While I do prefer cooler weather over hot I think that I can do without weather under 40. Alabama or Hawaii sounds pretty good right now.

      I live in Alabama, USA and it rarely gets cold enough here to need heated socks. The photo of the feet wrapped around a cup of hot coffee made me smile!

      I enjoy the outdoors in the winter and usually wear wool socks. I hadn't heard of the heated socks before. Great lens! Thanks!

      @TonyPayne: Your wife sounds just like me. Both my hands and my feet get cold and while it may be warm enough to wear shorts & a sleeveless shirt, if I'm in the house I've got socks on. It drives my husband nuts as I'll complain that my feet are cold while he is sitting there sweating.

      In the winter I have to wear really warm booties or electric socks or my toes turn a purple color. I guess it's from too much sitting down at the computer but I do get up and take a little break every 15 minutes and massage them to help with circulation.

      My wife gets cold feet all year round, and she has to wear socks in bed, even in the summer.

      I've never heard of heated socks and gloves. Thanks for sharing this wonderful idea, also would be a great gift for those who do things outside in freezing weather. Thanks for the diabetic warning.
