Feel human again
on 7 December 2015
After a lot of problems with cold feet, partly due to some tablets I take, my life has been much improved by these slippers. So much so that blood is actually circulating properly in my feet and I can wear fewer sweaters in the house during the cold, damp British winters. It's like my whole body has heated up. I feel human again and am not cursing all the time about cold feet.
By the way, they're not too good for walking around in - in fact I would definitely warn against that, unless it's a very short distance. They're too full of beads/grains to walk safely. You'll just have to live with that.
Also, as others have said - they do not stay warm anywhere near as long as is claimed - but do not let this put you off. There is still a big benefit to using them.
I've knocked a star off because I have a suggestion for the makers: when you put your feet up, the grains drop down quite far, leaving no grains at the top. This reduces somewhat their ability to keep feet warm, but it's not a massive issue, especially because the material is fleece, which insulates pretty well anyway even when they haven't been microwaved. There are also no gaps around where you put your foot in for air to escape, which is good. However, why not incorporate dividers or baffles inside the wall of the slipper, dividing off various parts of the slipper? You'd be able to get a more even coverage of grains when the foot is in a variety of positions. For those of you who have no idea what I mean, buy the slippers and see. I do recommend buying them anyway, as they are good.
They are also very good value.
There's an aroma of freshly baked bread to them too, which I like. I'd rather have that than some added scent like lavender, which they do to other makes of this type of slipper.
