Best Insoles for Winter
Thursday, 7 November 2019
As the seasons change, so does our clothing, so why shouldn't this rule apply to our shoe insoles as well? Insoles that provide you with support and breathability in the warmer months can contribute to plenty of heat loss in your feet, making it nearly impossible to stay warm outdoors in the cold.
This is where our insoles for winter come in, specially developed with extra-thick materials, thermal lining or active heating elements. These insoles are the ultimate tool for achieving that most simple yet satisfying of pleasures: toasty warm feet on a cold winter's day. Many of these insoles are suitable for use with winter sportswear such as ski or snowboard boots as well, making them a perfect addition to your next ski holiday or hike. If you want to give your feet the best chance of staying warm this winter, read on for our insole experts' top choices!
Pedag Viva Winter Insoles
The Pedag Viva Winter Insoles feature a woollen upper layer, relying on natural materials to provide great comfort and warmth. In addition to this, these winter insoles also feature an underside made of special aluminium foil which works to shield the feet from the cold ground.
Superfeet Merino Grey Performance Insoles
The Superfeet Merino Grey Performance Insoles feature all the comfort and protection of the bestselling Superfeet Green Insoles, now with an added upper layer of soft merino wool. These warm insoles can fit into any daily or sports shoe, and are suitable for all-season use, providing shock protection and biomechanical correction.
ThermicSole Classic Heated Insoles
If you won't be doing very much physical activity, you'll probably need more than just heat-retention from your insoles. The Therm-IC Heat Flat Heated Insoles are an ideal solution, as they include built-in heating elements to warm your feet to the ideal temperature.
Superfeet Red Hot Insoles
The Superfeet Red Hot Insoles may sound like they are designed to deal with the desert heat, but it's the freezing temperatures of midwinter for which they are truly equipped. Again building on the basic strengths of the Superfeet Green Insoles, the Red Hot feature responsive temperature control technology which absorbs, stores and releases warmth to all areas of the foot.
Pedag Merino Full Insoles
The last on our list are the Pedag Merino Full Insoles, which are included in our list because they intelligently regulate your shoe temperature, helping you to keep them warm in the winter and cool in the summer. They are made using soft angora which encourages comfort with its cushioning composition. Finally, the Merino wool that lines the angora means that walking will be a far more comfortable process.
Keep Your Feet Cosy with Winter Insoles
Keeping your feet warm with winter insoles is not only a great pleasure, it can also make taking part in winter sports like skiing far more enjoyable. While we're focusing on the warming aspects of these insoles, it's important to remember that supportive insoles like the Superfeet or Pedag choices are also designed to provide plenty of support, helping you battle arch pain, foot fatigue and general aches and pains.
