Warm and cozy
February 10, 2018
I recently received the heated socks that are powered by 3 AA batteries each. They' re made of a very luxurious fabric. I wear men's size 10 shoes and the L/XL size is a perfect fit. I was a little concerned that the battery packs might feel too heavy, but they' re not even noticeable when in use. I've only used the socks once so far, during the recent cold spell here in the northeast, but they provided just the right warmth inside my boots. Because the socks are slightly bulky, you might want to wear them with shoes or boots that are a half size larger than you would wear using normal socks. The included care instructions say to spot clean only, so I emailed customer service asking what to do if the socks get dirty or sweaty. They replied quickly that it's OK to hand wash in water with a gentle soap, and to lay flat to dry (but not to place in the dryer). Delivery took a few weeks, a bit longer than expected, but not a big deal for me.
ProsVery comfortable, with thick, soft fabric. Just the right amount of gentle heat. Battery packs tuck easily away at top of socks and aren't even noticeable when in use.
ConsDelivery took several weeks.
