Why buy foot warmers?

If you enjoy outdoor sports in cold weather, such as skiing, snowboarding, riding snowmobiles, hunting, ice fishing, or snowshoeing, then you know what it’s like to suffer from cold feet now and again. Feet warmers in your shoes go beyond the warmth of boots and socks, adding another layer of warmth and comfort. Other foot warmers are for home use (or even the office). You simply rest your feet on them, and they’ll warm you right up. These are great if you need to sit for long periods and help relieve joint or muscle pain in your feet.

What should you consider in foot warmers?

  • At Home or On the Go: There are two main types of foot warmers: those that go inside your shoes either as a pair of warming socks or a sticky insole for your shoes or boots, and those that stay at home to warm your feet as you relax.
  • Reusable or Disposable: Most at-home foot warmers will be reusable, but we can’t say the same for all insoles. Some feet warming insoles are made to be tossed away after use, which can be good, especially if you’re involved in vigorous activities. Other feet warmers, such as feet warming socks, can be washed and recharged for the next time you venture to the chilly outdoors.
  • Longevity: Consider how long your feet warmers are made to last. If you’re planning a trip to an outdoor sporting event, you’ll only need foot warmers that last a few hours. However, if you’re planning a hunting trip, you may want to consider something that can last a bit longer.

Are in-shoe foot warmers safe to wear in all shoes?

Some foot warmers are made with ingredients that, when activated, create warmth. Iron powder being the main one, if activated with oxygen, can produce high levels of heat that may burn your skin. Therefore, you’ll want to avoid wearing ventilated running shoes or cycling shoes with these types of in-shoe foot warmers. If you do, it’s best to wear wool socks and place the warmers on top of the socks, nearest to the toes.

Our Picks for the Best Foot Warmers

Best Portable

HotHands Insole Foot Warmers with Adhesive

These disposable foot warmers stick to the insides of your shoes for hours of warmth in cool weather.

Pros: Since these foot warmers are single-use, you don’t have to worry about cleaning or storing them. They’re inexpensive, so you can buy a few packs to keep handy for your next outdoor adventure. They’re simple to activate, and they’re also easy to adhere directly to your socks. And they’re environmentally friendly since they’re made from iron powder, water, salt, activated charcoal, and wood fiber. In other words, you don’t have to feel bad about tossing them out. They hold a temperature between 99 to 109 degrees F for comfortable warmth without burning and last up to 9 hours.

Cons: These foot warmers run a little small.

Bottom Line: For ultimate outdoor comfort, these foot warmers keep your tootsies toasty for hours. Slip them on to wear inside your shoes and boots, and you’ll be set for any cold adventure.

 

Best with Massage

Snailax 2-in-1 Shiatsu Foot and Back Massager

With a convenient remote control, this massager warms your feet as you relax in comfort.

Pros: With rotating silicone nodes, this foot massager melts away the soreness or stiffness in your feet after a long day. It has gentle heat that works with or without the massager part being on, so you can choose to heat your toes after a day out in the cold. The plush, cozy outside layer zips on and off so you can wash it regularly. It’s remote-operated for ultimate comfort and turns off automatically after 15 minutes for safety. Since it’s small and easy to carry, you can take this massager to the office with you, too. And, on top of all the benefits to your feet, you can use this massager for your back.

Cons: It takes a while for this foot warmer to heat up.

Bottom Line: This foot warmer is a must-have for sore, tired feet. It is made with soft, cozy materials that feel like a pair of slippers, and thankfully, you can use this on more than just your sore feet if needed.

 

Best Rechargable

Snow Deer Rechargeable Electric Heated Socks

These battery-powered cotton socks provide all-day warmth for your outdoor activities.

Pros: These feet warmer socks come in several sizes and a size chart to get the best fit. They also come in a couple of different colors so that you can choose between a classic black or grey sock. They fit beautifully underneath a pair of winter boots, and they even fit snugly under ski boots. The battery attaches to the calf, bringing heat to the elements that line the foot and toes. Speaking of the battery, it’s rechargeable, saving you money on new batteries. Also, these heated socks have three heat settings for the ultimate warmth and comfort of your feet.

Cons: These warming socks do not come with clear instructions, and the batteries do not last long.

Bottom Line: Washable and reusable, these heated socks are an excellent product for people who love to get outdoors during the cooler months. Just charge them up and stay warm as you sleep, camp, and travel.

 

Best Adjustable

Cozy Products TT Toasty Toes Ergonomic Heated Foot Warmer

Get the most out of your footrest with this ergonomic foot heater, perfect for warming your toes while sitting or standing.

Pros: One thing we love about this little feet heater is its energy efficiency. It runs on a 105-watt heater, so it’s safe and reduces fire hazards. You can adjust the heat and the position of this foot warmer for ultimate warmth and comfort. When turned up high, this little heater does a great job of heating the small space under your desk or at the foot of your couch or favorite chair. Plus, it runs quietly, so if you’re using it in an office, you won’t disturb the people around you.

Cons: This feet warmer does not sufficiently warm the tops of the feet. Also, it does not come with a remote.

Bottom Line: This feet-heating footrest is ideal for underneath a desk. It works best if you wear socks, but it will also warm the bottoms of your feet without them. It’s a decent alternative to a space heater because it won’t overheat a large space.

 

Best Value Pack

HotHands Toe Warmers

Keep you and yours warm in the cool weather while camping, hunting, or watching sports with these convenient foot warmers.

Pros: These foot warmers are easy to use: you shake them to activate, then wait around 20 minutes for them to heat completely. They’re made from safe materials primarily sourced in the U.S. These are TSA-approved, so you can be warm and cozy, even when traveling. Best of all, these disposable foot warmers come in a huge pack so that you can share them with your friends, family, and tailgating buddies.

Cons: Though they can work up to eight hours, they may not last quite this long for everyone.

Bottom Line: If you’re planning on tailgating, attending a group hunting or skiing trip, or simply taking the family out in the colder months, this extra-large pack of foot warmers may be just what you need. They’re disposable yet environmentally safe.

Final Thoughts

There are plenty of different foot warmers to warm your feet, no matter the time of year. From mini heaters that are perfect for the office to disposable feet warmers you can stick in your shoes, there’s something for everyone. So now you can enjoy all your favorite activities without worrying about frozen toes.
