The Basics:

We sell a wide range of heated socks. Some cost as little as $30 and some upwards of $400. All heated socks are designed to do one thing: keep your toes toasty warm. Let's walk through the basic categories of heated socks by quality and price.

Battery Powered Socks

ActionHeat AA Heated Socks  – By far our most popular sock! They are comfortable, stylish and easy to wear. ActionHeat battery heated apparel utilizes innovative technology designed to warm the core body temperature. These socks feature built-in heating panels and are made with ActionFlex material that provides lightweight warmth, comfort, and versatility. Powered by 3 AA batteries in each sock, the heating element is on the ball of the foot by the toes. Great for hunting, snow sports, snowmobiling, working outside, motorcycle riding, or even just walking the dog. These socks are also available in Wool.

Nordic Gear Lectra Sox – Lectra Sox from Nordic Gear are a great lower-end option for the beginner in the heated sock world. These socks are knit from a wool/poly yarn and are also available in a Wader Style. Each sock requires 1 D battery which provides 6-8 hours of comfortable warmth. The Lectra Sox socks have an accessible battery pouch for easy heat control with a snap on/off control for easy operation. They are designed to be safe even when wet and are made with Hollofill high-tech fiber for maximum moisture wicking. The recessed channel built into the leg and toe area keeps the heating unit flush with the sock.  The comfortable cushioning in the sole of the Lectra Sox will make these your favorite socks.

Terramar Battery Heated Socks  – Terramar Socks are another low-cost heated sock option for the budget-minded. These socks are powered by one 9V battery per sock. For best performance, use high-quality 9V alkaline batteries. You will receive about 4-5 hours of blissful heat.
