Right Now We Want: Heated insoles to get through the rest of winter
It's going to get cold again in New York these week, but we found an innovative way to keep your feet toasty
Mon Mar 3 2014
Welcome to Right Now We Want, a new feature in which we pick one lustworthy product each week. Whether it's a trinket you can scoop up today after work or a goody worth saving your money for, these items are our new favorite things.
Spoiler alert: It's cold again. Actually, it never stopped being cold, and it looks like we're going to get hit with chilly temps throughout the week. Even though spring is right around the corner, it's not time to put away your winter coat quite yet. In fact, we suggest fighting the low temps with a new gadget, and these Thermacell Heated Insoles ($134.99) should do the trick. Here's how they work: You insert the wireless, battery-operated insoles in your boots or shoes, and control the temperature via a remote control. The insoles maintain a steady temperature, so they're not like disposable foot-warming packets that get super hot to the touch and then make your feet sweaty. In fact, once the insoles get to your desired temperature, they turn off and then automatically turn back on when needed.
We know what you're thinking. Why didn't I buy these bad boys at the beginning of the season?!?!? We had the same thought. But think of this purchase as being super prepared for next winter. And these are the items that will keep you sane (and warm) for the rest of this cold snap. Because when a winter lasts as long as this one, we're all just about at our breaking points.
