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.
