If you are a sports person who loves to ski, the first thing you would like to feel when you come home and pull your boots off is warmth for your feet. You may sit in front of the hearth covered in warm clothes with your feet exposed to the fireplace. This will give you temporary comfort. You might burrow deep into your bed’s covers and try keeping your feet war; but, that will do no good either. Your feet will still feel cold. It won’t be soon before your feet start feeling the warmth that is generated within the covers by your body. Once again, slipper socks can help – instantly!
So, since we’ve mentioned the ability of these slipper/socks to keep feet warm almost instantaneously, wouldn’t it be great to find out what they really are? They are actually a hybrid of slippers and socks. The sole feels like slippers while the rest of the product feels like socks. These are normally made from thick wool or high-quality fleece. The sole is made from durable, soft synthetic suede. They are also fitted with good grip so you will not slip easily. Some soles have leather sidewalls. These slippers can easily resemble boots, but not in weight. They are extremely lightweight, easy-to-wear, and comfortable. You can wear them comfortably both indoors and outdoors (at least to pick up your mail from the box on a cold snowy day).
Woolrich products feature 8-mm memory foam soles (footbeds) that act as cushions for tired feet. The material is soft fleece with lining.
Another manufacturer who creates wonderful thermal socks is FootSmart. Their products are made from organic wool that is naturally insulating. The soles are treaded to be 100% skid-resistant on any flooring.
No research for such thermal footwear is complete without mentioning ACORN. Many of their products feature ribbed wool blend material that won’t clip off your feet. Memory foam forms the mid sole for utmost comfort with each step. The sidewalls and soles are made of leather and suede.
