Heating options

Many people suffer from cold feet in their ski boots. While having your boots custom fit can help reduce these symptoms, some people, especially women, still experience uncomfortably cold feet. This can really put a downer on your skiing experience. Boot Solutions has a number of heating options to keep your toes toasty warm. 

Boot Heaters

Boot Solutions offers two brands of Boot Heaters: Hotronics S4 FootWarmers and Thermic C-Pack 1300. These products are battery operated heating elements which are installed into the boots insole under the ball of your foot. By providing a base level temperature at the toes, they work to block and neutralize the penetrating cold, keeping the blood circulation open and maintaining comfort and warmth in the feet. 

And with different temperature settings you can keep your feet at a perfect temperature. While you’re sitting on the chair lift, with a quick turn of the dial you can crank up the heat, and then when you’re ready to power down the mountain, you can take the temperature down a few notches.

We can even install a second set of elements into your apres boots to keep your toes toasty warm all night long too.

Heated Socks

We also stock Lenz Heat Socks.  They are a performance sock with heating elements of the latest generation which completely incorporate the toe area. the natural material mix of merino wool and silk supports the excellent heat effect of the sock. They are adjustable through 3 heat levels both on the battery itself and through an optional smart phone app that connects to the batteries via blue tooth. The benefit of a heated sock over traditional boot heaters is the ability use in other footwear, so you can keep your feet warm in your apres boots or hiking boots too!
