Advantages Instant heat
Disadvantages Not hot for long
These slipper type socks are made of wheatbags and when heated, provide instant heat to the toes, top of the foot and heel.
They come in various colours.
Available colours are:
They look like a sock but they have 2 seperate compartments.
One of them is joined at the heel with a button (to allow access to the bag) and the other is more like a flap on top of the toes (to insert the bag).
To heat up, put either the bags or the whole slipper into a microwave and heat for a couple of minutes.The price varies from place to place but are usually around the £15.00 range.
Putting the socks into the microwave, I tested the heat effectiveness by doing different time limits.1 minute in the microwave barely heated the slippers up, a minute and a half and the socks are quite warm. 2 minutes is fine for me but any longer and the heat gives you pins and needles!
The smell started off with a nice lavender scent, however after wearing the slippers for a while, the scent disappeared and smelt like any normal slipper!I am a little disappointed with the bottoms of the slippers. They are white, which is a deadly colour in our house considering the dirt! So the bottoms do get dirty very quickly.
They are not too bad to walk around in but you do find the wheat bags drag a little and can be cumbersome when climbing the stairs.For instant heat, they are very good when you come in from the cold, however, the heat does not last long but I guess it depends on how long they were in the microwave.
If you are sitting down, you dont really feel the effectiveness of the heat until pressure is applied.A good foot warmer but needs to be able to heat up for longer.
