No More Cold Feet: Volt Heated Slippers
It might seem an odd time to discuss today’s product. After all, in much of the USA, temperatures are approaching their yearly highs as summer brings out the sun. But there are plenty of folks in colder climates, and those who suffer from various maladies that make circulation a problem. If you’re someone who regularly has cold feet, or needs to warm up their extremities, then we have just the thing to help alleviate that particular concern.
The Volt Resistance Heated Indoor /Outdoor Slippers are exactly what they sound like- the perfect thing for skiiers, or winter trips through snow. Battery powered, they use a rechargeable, removable pack that lasts for six or more hours (in our tests, they served well for most of a day’s use, though we weren’t operating in sub-zero or near-zero temps). They’re not unattractive or uncomfortable either- we wouldn’t trek very far with these, or use them as a primary shoe, but they were great for use around the house or in the office. It’s hard to complain about the style- it’s functional and cozy.
Well-insulated, they have a built-in drawstring cinch cord to help seal in the heat. Available in three colors, including orchid and two types of black, one of them solid and the other with a slightly glossy pattern. They aren’t the most lightweight slippers, nor do they offer the best tread, but again: these aren’t serious boots. They do heat up impressively quickly, and managed to make us almost wish for snow- quite a feat indeed.
Available now, online and in stores, but make sure that you are buying the latest version (V3) as earlier models are still around and these are much improved over the previous editions. Expect to spend around $130, which feels just a bit high.
