#1: Microwave Hot and Cold Non-scented “Kozy Slippers” By Kozy Collar
These foot warming slippers are channeled both on top and on the bottom. This design provides heat to your entire foot, not just the bottom like most microwaveable foot warmers.

An important advantage are that they can be used as an ice pack for cooling as well – just put them in the freezer. Users appreciate the freezing option and their ability to keep the heat well. Just beware, you can’t walk in these slippers, like most microwaveable foot warmers. They will even fit your hands for warming those cold fingers.
#2: Intelex Cozy Body Boots
These cozy boots are called Warmies® and made by Intelex USA. They are made in a cream coloured plush material which is super soft, and are filled with flax or millet grains and dried lavender. They will definitely keep your feet warm at home. As with any microwave foot warmers, your feet are free from any connecting cords. Remove the coles, put them in the microwave for 1 minutes, which heats the grain in side the sole. Then slip the sole back in – and you are good to go. The heat will last about an hour, but beware that you cannot walk in these. Note: These booties can also be used as a cold pack for pain relief.

They come in blue or pink. Note that these foot warmers you can walk in, because the heating pads are on top and on the sides. You can put the entire shoe in the microwave, so no need to fuss around with sole inserts. Users appreciate the comfort, lasting heat and the tight fit: “They’ve saved my life”, one user says.

This pair of warming footies by Carex Health Brands will keep your feet warm at home. Microwave the foot warmer inserts (sole) for about 1-2 minutes, put the inserts back, wear them, and the heat will keep your feet warm for about an hour depending on how and where they are used. The booties are made of a very soft fleece fabric (polyester), and the bottom inserted pouches can be microwaved. A nice touch users appreciate: These booties are scented with eucaluptus, clove and cinnamon. Important note: You cannot walk in these footies, and only the bottom part is heated.
What to look for when choosing the right foot warmer
Simple or advanced: Do you want just warm footies, microwaveable footies or electric ones? For certain cold feet or conditions, the simple footies with no external heating won’t be enough, for others these are the best.
Connecting cords: Do the foot warmers have connecting cords (electric). The cords will make it harder for you to move your legs in the foot warmers. Some users don’t mind this, others like to be more flexible.
Tight fit: Investigate users reviews to see how the foot warmer fits is on both the feet and lower ankles. The tighter, the better.
Top, sides, bottom heating? Investigate whether your foot warmer has heating elements on the top, sides or just the bottom part. Users have different preferences, but most users agree that foot warmers need to warm the feet from multiple angles.
Size: Size matters on some types of foot warmers, which has to do with the fit. Most foot warmers come in a larger one-for-all. This can prevent small feet from having a tight fit.
Can you walk: Foot warmers are different in that for some foot warmers, even heated ones, you can walk in them, others you cannot, because the grain soles won’t allow it, or the connecting cords makes it impossible. If you want to be able to walk around, choose non-heated ones or microwaveable foot warmers with only heating pads on the top and sides.
Heat duration: The microwaveable foot warmers will only last a certain while, which typically is 15-60 minutes. The electric ones will of course last as long as you need them to. It depends on your condition and how long you need to heat to last.
