Quite unlike the other heated accessories (socks, gloves, vests and jackets), heated slippers are usually heated in the microwave. There are a few pair of electrically operated foot warmers that plug into the wall and operate much like an electric blanket does. A few others are pocket slipper socks that use pouches filled with food grade ingredients that will get hot when combined. These pouches are activated and then placed in the toe pockets of the slipper socks to produce heat.

The majority of foot warming systems are either electrically heated socks, massaging foot warmers, or microwave booties.

One advantage of microwave booties is that they will never need batteries. While the heat gain from microwaving will only last a while, the booties can be microwaved over and over again. They often also have small pockets where aromatic herbs can be placed so that a soothing aroma is released upon heating.

Not everyone wants to warm their aching feet, some want to cool hot, tired feet. Many brands of microwave style booties can also be placed in the freezer to provide cooling relief for aching feet.

For those who’s taste runs to the electric, 110 volt foot cozies may help users ease aching feet or simply warm up cold ones. These devices sometimes have massaging action to help loosen up tired muscles. One consideration is that being 100 volt, the user is tethered to an electrical outlet, whereas with microwave booties, you still have freedom to move about the house.
