Mine were only suitable for medium or small ankles, product is being improved.
on 31 August 2012
This is an edited version of an earlier review. The makers have promised to improve the product so that the velcro battery holder cuff fits larger ankles.
I obtained these as I have poor circulation and wanted something to keep my feet warm whilst out and about this winter. One of the side-effects of the poor circulation is that I have swollen ankles. Mine are officially large - from being a small/medium when not swollen. Sadly, this made the insoles unusable for me. The cuffs on my product were suitable for ankles under 30cm (12 inches) in circumference.
These battery powered insoles have a soft fabric anklet with a velcro closure to hold the battery pack. A wire leads to a metal heat strip sandwiched in the soft fabric insole. The heat produced is very, very gentle - I can't imagine that it would ever become uncomfortable in use.
There is a size guide clearly printed on the insole, to help with cutting to size. The insole is no thicker than usual insoles - it is quite thin but the fabric is sturdy.
