Feeling tense, irritable, and stressed? It’s probably because your feet are cold.
When your feet get too cold, your pain receptors are triggered and you feel discomfort which can lead to health problems like arthritis, Raynaud’s Syndrome, diabetes, multiple sclerosis (MS), muscular dystrophy (MD) and fibromyalgia.
This is due to poor circulation caused by lack of warmth in your feet.
Cold feet can weaken your immune system and can also cause problems with certain health conditions.
This is why wearing slippers all year round so your feet stay at a comfortable warm temperature is important.
We’ve researched the latest innovations in slippers and found that heated slippers are an incredibly effective solution to cold-induced foot pain.
Microwavable slippers allow you to get extra warmth for more therapeutic comfort. They make perfect gifts for yourself or for anyone in your life with bad circulation.
3. CYzpf Warm Shoes
We found these on Amazon and they’re not exactly microwavable, but they do have an electric heat pad. As such, you’ll only be able to enjoy the extra heat if you plug in the heat pad, meaning you’re stuck sitting in one place for a bit while they heat up.
We enjoyed using these and they kept our feet warm, but being locked into one position wasn’t ideal. It’d be nice if you could enjoy the heat and still be able to move around.
- Power supply: USB
- Super soft velvet
- Thin sole
- One size
Warmies are like the big brother to the CYzpf Warm Shoes. They’re made with soft plush, but to get the extra warmth you have to put the entire slipper into the microwave. This makes the slipper feel slightly damp which can be uncomfortable for some.
They aren’t machine washable due to the flax seeds within so you can only surface clean them with a lightly damp cloth. Plus, unfortunately, they only come in one size, so some of our testers didn’t have a comfortable fit. They’re lavender-scented, which is a nice touch.
Obviously, they did the job, but they probably won’t last you that long and you might have to replace them often depending on how much you heat them up and wear them. Although the site does say with proper care they should last you quite a while.
