Do you suffer from cold feet? If you do you may be looking for the best heated and electric socks to remedy the problem.
I’ll show you what to look for before making your purchase and my top picks for winter 2017-2018.
How To Pick Your Socks
There’s a few things to consider before deciding on a product and they are:
- What you are using the socks for
- How long you need the battery to last
- Materials of the sock
The first thing you need to think about is what conditions will you face while wearing the socks. Some people suffer from medical conditions (like diabetes or raynaud’s disease) or poor circulation which requires heated socks at home/daily use. Other people enjoy cold weather activities like skiing, hiking, winter motorcycle riding, hunting, and etc. You may need less features if you are using at home as opposed to rigorous outdoor activities.
Next, you need to examine the battery life of the sock; some hold charges longer than others. If you plan on hiking all day you need a product that can hold a charge for 5+ hours (or consider buying a back up battery to switch out). Many motorcycle socks can be plugged into the electrical system of the bike and will last all day long.
Lastly, you need to consider the materials of the sock. Some are made from cotton while others are comprised of wool. There are socks that are a combination of other materials too.
Now that you know what to look for, let’s take a look at my top picks.
Flambeau Men’s Heated Socks Kit
The Flambeau Heated Socks Kit is made specifically for a man’s foot and is a high quality product – the price isn’t too bad either (under $69). Some top features include:
- Made from a blend of wool, cotton and polyester
- Does a good job removing excess sweat and keeping feet dry
- Holds charge for more than 5 hours
These are one of the most versatile products on this list. I know people that use them when lounging around at home and when out playing soccer. They can full fill the needs of all people.
