We rarely have the opportunity to test a product with a good-sized sample of our members, but when one of our Sponsors started carrying Heat Holders® socks a couple of years ago, we were given the chance to let a number of Frosties use the product and provide their feedback, and the results were impressive. So we’re happy to welcome the manufacturer directly as one of our Sponsors.
Heat Holders® are thermal socks that take warmth to a new level. Their three-step scientific process (view the video) results in socks that have proven seven-times warmer than cotton socks, and are three times more effective at keeping feet warmer than standard thermal socks. Some of the product’s benefits include:
- Advance insulating yarn results in high-performance insulation against the cold
- Long-loop thermal pile holds in warm air around the feet and toes
- Soft brush inner lining maximizes the amount of warm air held inside the sock for increased warmth and comfort
In our member tests, we received feedback on the softness and warmth of the socks with words like “fluffy, soothing and lofty.” Beyond the plushy comfort, high quality and durability that was reported, the majority of our testers found the socks helped them to better tolerate the cold, reporting less pain in their feet and toes, reduced severity of Raynaud’s attacks, and lower attack frequency.
One tester reported Heat Holders® to be the “Warmest socks I’ve ever worn.” Another told us they experienced instant relief: “…like putting feet into a lovely warm sauna…helping the whole body stay warm.” It’s not often we receive such positive reviews on products.
One compromise to be prepared for: These socks are quite thick, so thick that unless using them with extra-roomy shoes or boots, wearing the socks may be limited to the indoors or at bedtime. (Note: The Slipper style comes with non-skid soles for safe indoor use.)
We can’t guarantee every Frostie will have such positive experiences with Heat Holders®, but the majority who tried them would recommend that fellow Raynaud’s sufferers give them a try.

The Heat Holders® product line has been significantly expanded since we first tried them. In addition to the Slipper style, they offer several colors, lengths, stripes and twist patterns, plus tights and leggings and an option that works as liners for Wellington boots. For those tempted to figure out how to use the fabric to warm other body parts, they also make gloves, mittens and hats, so pretty much all frozen body parts can be covered with soft, insulating, comfortable heat!
