Review Content toasty toes Nerve damaged foot feels the cold more and these have helped to relieve that problem. Overall happy with the product I bought these socks for my boyfriend for work outside in freezing cold WI winters. I ordered a black pair and received a gray color, no big deal since theyre specifically for work and color doesnt matter. However, he does use them and loves that they keep his feet warm for about 4 hours at a time. The re-chargeable battery concept is nice and he says they are not bulky and it is easy to move freely in them. Quality product Batteries prevent from wearing under full boots, but the product appears to be well made and technology user friendly. Wish I did not need it for the frigid weather! Great Item My husband has problems with his feet, especially during the winter. These sox will allow him to keep his feet warm during the cold days of winter. The battery packs are so unlike the old heated sox you used to be able to get they are so small and light weight. Love them. Better Than Anything I Could FInd Great product that really did the trick for me. At night, my feet get really cold. Tried multiple pairs of socks and even chemical hand warmers but none were effective. These worked really well. Main problem is with the design. The pocket on the sock where the battery is to be put after plugging in is too far away from where the wire is attached to the sock. Hard to stretch it and close the velcro fasteners over the battery. I have only used half the maximum power setting and it has served me all night. Problem I have now is that the connector on one of the socks no longer activates the battery, so I am left with one useless sock. better than illustrated seems well made Great Heated Socks! I have very cold legs, ankles and feet due to neuropathy. I wear these when I go outside into the cold weather. These socks are extremely helpful, as the entire soles heat up. However, I would like to see a sock design with the entire sock heated! Even better than expected I have tried other heated socks in the past but the battery was usually too big and bulky. These come with small flat batteries and I dont even notice them. The socks heat up very nice and when worn with my boots I only need the 50% setting. The only negative is trying to change the power level as you have to take the battery out of the battery storage pocket to adjust it but I usually just put it on the 50% setting and just leave it. Great Item Pefect for long motorcycle rides. Longest battery life Ive been able to find! For long nights of plowing snow, need that extra battery life Took forever to arrive Unfortunately, these socks took more than 2 months to arrive...But so far, they seem to work fine. Theyre too thin to wear another pair of socks underneath them (so you could get multiple days of use before needing to wash them). Weve had them less than a week, so I cannot comment on battery life or how the material holds up long-term. Great gift idea Great gift idea for someone whose feet get cold easily I love these so much I have two pairs! I was so happy to find this product. My Neuropathy in my legs and feet is so terrible that I was up in the night for several hour a night, in pain. The 2 lower settings help my feet so very much that I sleep so much better. I can wear the stockings during the day on a bad day for my body, and it is helpful in that way, too. I am saving the two higher settings for the years ahead as the problem will get worse in my legs. I bought an extra pair of batteries so I can cover almost any type of use, or emergency. I have a L. pair and an XL pair, to use when my legs swell…so that is why I wish there were elastic at the top plus the "pull cord." I wish for a few design changes, but in an overall way what you are making is quite wonderful…Thank You! Comfort When Its Cold The first pair had a problem with the wiring in the sock, but Sharper Image took care of it. Thereafter, the benefits of heated socks for outdoor winter activities were appreciated. The socks are thin enough to wear inside regular winter boots. However, it took some getting used to their rather tight compression. Surprisingly easy to clean. Overall, a good idea! I really like the heated socks. They are comfortable. My feet are always cold and I use them at bed time to sleep. great gift nice winter gift Battery dies in cold weather I find it interesting that my first review was not published. This is the second pair and continue to have the same problem as the first pair. The battery does not last in the cold/extreme temperatures. I am a snowboarder and am outside in temperatures well below 32F. Each time the battery life is sucked out and the socks become useless. The control is a good idea, but doesnt work if the battery doesnt work. I would recommend these for the casual user only, they are not good for extreme cold temperatures. I also found them to be bulky and uncomfortable - you can feel the wire under your foot. The wire also seems to slip down (again I am a snowboarder with a lot of movement).
