Joy in Maine is a big fan of Grabber’s heated socks. She says: “Cabela’s has socks by Grabber that I would completely endorse as a Frostie – they are about $25 and battery-operated. Inside my shoes they work amazingly well.” Thanks so much for sharing your find with us Joy!
Natha in Texas discovered the natural warmth of cashmere: “I bought cashmere socks. I have two cashmere coats and they are the warmest coats I own.” Editor’s note: For those looking to treat themselves to the luxury of cashmere, you might also consider alpaca as an alternative – it offers the same incredible softness against your toes as cashmere, but is warmer than wool. One of our members who is also a Sponsor has a great story about starting an alpaca farm to make warm socks after her sister introduced her to a pair.
Natha also passed along a couple of additional ideas for keeping our toes warm: The lambs wool liners that ballerinas use to protect their toes (as a former dancer, I always wondered if this solution would work!), and the more modern Pump Pouches made by ProFeet – both used to cover and cushion the toes inside our shoes. Sounds like the secret to warmth is sheep and llamas!
