HOW DO YOU KEEP YOUR FEET WARM IN SKI BOOTS?

The cold is a skier's worst enemy. In the same way as blisters, chafing or pain from tension points, frozen toes can ruin a day in the mountains. At Therm-ic, we've been pursuing the quest for comfort as our raison d’être and through our expertise ever since our company was founded nearly 30 years ago. That's why we've developed two types of solution to keep your feet warm in all circumstances in your winter sports footwear:

- Heated socks.
- Heated insoles, which will be discussed in this guide. A guide that is all about 'why to use them' and 'how to choose them'?

WHY SHOULD YOU USE HEATED INSOLES SO THAT YOUR FEET NO LONGER GET COLD? WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A HEATED INSOLE?

There are many reasons to use our heated insoles. Here's why they promise you will never get cold feet again in your skiing, hiking, snowboarding or cross-country boots:

- The reliable, high-performance heating system which, thanks to the incredibly innovative solutions developed by our R&D department, gives you nearly 17 hours of continuous warmth to support you throughout all your outdoor activities. Guaranteed comfort from morning to night. In fact, we've designed some of the toughest, most durable heated insoles on the market.

- A uniform heating system for optimum distribution of the hot air flow. In other words, the insole provides warmth to the whole of your foot, not just localised areas.

- A three-level adjustment of the heating intensity, to respond efficiently to outdoor conditions: so that your feet neither too cold nor too hot.

- Unbeatable comfort. We are experts on the human body and its thermoregulation. This expertise is reflected in the ergonomics of our products. That's why our insoles have a soft-touch coating and fit the shape of your arch: to avoid those pressure points and aches and pains that negatively impact your day out.

HOW DO OUR HEATED INSOLES WORK? WHAT BUDGET DO I NEED FOR HEATED INSOLES?

Heated insoles use two elements to work:

- The insole with the heating system.
- The thin, imperceptible battery to power the heating system.

Heated insoles are in fact insoles where the heat intensity can be adjusted to three different levels, either manually or via Bluetooth, depending on the type of batteries you choose (we'll explain all that later)!

As for price, expect to pay between €40 and €50 for a pair of insoles. A pair of batteries will cost between €140 and €230.

WHAT ARE THE BEST HEATED INSOLES FOR COLD WEATHER? WHAT ARE YOUR TIPS FOR CHOOSING THE HEATING INSOLES THAT ARE RIGHT FOR ME?

So you can now see the benefits of heated insoles in your ski, hiking, snowboard or cross-country boots, but you're wondering which ones to choose? What are the best heated insoles to help keep your feet warm no matter how cold it gets outside?

Follow this buyer's guide to select which of our three models is right for you:

HEAT 3D HEATED INSOLES

HEAT KIT HEATED INSOLES

A 'must have' for those who have already customised their ski boots by bootfitting.

The competitive advantage: An extremely simple, intuitive and imperceptible kit that you can directly fit into your insoles yourself, without needing to change them if this is something you need.

WHAT ARE DIFFERENT TYPES OF BATTERIES ARE THERE FOR HEATED INSOLES? AND WHAT ARE THE CHARGING AND MAINTENANCE TIPS FOR HEATED INSOLE BATTERIES?

As with heated insoles, we have developed three battery models. Batteries that we have grouped together in the 'C-PACK' category. What is different about each of them: their heating power, their battery life, their charging time and whether or not they are Bluetooth compatible.

C-PACK 1700 B HEATED INSOLE BATTERIES

C-Pack 1700B batteries are the most powerful in the range, if not the market. They provide up to 17 hours of continuous heat and allow remote adjustment of heat intensity, via Bluetooth compatibility.

C-PACK 1300 B HEATED INSOLE BATTERIES

Thinner than their counterparts, C-Pack 1300B heated insole batteries provide comfort and warmth for your feet for nearly 13 hours. The Bluetooth compatibility gives you the ability to adjust the heating intensity from your smartphone.

C-PACK 1300 HEATED INSOLE BATTERIES

C-Pack 1300 batteries are the best value for money: reliable, high-performance and long-lasting batteries that give you up to 13 hours of battery life, with a single adjustment knob to adjust the heat.

WHICH ARE THE BEST HEATED INSOLES FOR OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES OTHER THAN SKIING: SNOWBOARDING, HIKING OR CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING?

Heated insoles are mostly used for skiing, because of the conflict that exists between your feet and your ski boots.

However, heated insoles are also really useful for other winter outdoor activities such as snowboarding, cross-country skiing or hiking.

For snowboarding, we would recommend that you go for HEAT 3D heated insoles or HEAT KIT while HEAT FLAT heated insoles are just thin enough to perfectly suit the small footbed of a hiking or cross-country ski boot.

We hope we've answered all your questions about heated insoles to combat the cold! On behalf of the whole Therm-ic team, we look forward to seeing you in the mountains!
