Uses different technology than SEGMINISMART Heated Insoles which makes it wireless. Though the Medium level is perfect for almost every situation and chances are you won’t even use the High level. You can cut the sole accordingly to your feet size. Though it’s a little thick and we will recommend using them in tight shoes as it also increase a little of height.
It is made with carbon fibre like material which helps in insulating and also makes it look good and waterproof. A must buy for hyper active people who like spending time outdoors hunting in spine chilling weathers.

Its 3D ergonomics gives a secure hold of the feet making it very good for running situtaions while hunting.It is very easy to slid in shoes feature and perfectly fits in any kind of shoes.

The only drawback we felt was ,you need to purchase the battery pack separate. The best we suggest is Thermic Sole Perform Heating Insoles

This product comes with 10 pairs with sole warmers,every pack keeps your sole warm for 8 hours as soon as the pack is opened.

7. Warmawear Battery Heated Insoles
These are the perfect ones for ski boots.Very easy to cut and fir 5-9 UK sizes. It regulates the heat wisely but not as good as competitors, these insoles only regulates heat in yellow stripped areas but not the whole insole.
The second minus point would still be that there is only one on/off switch and no heat can be regulated. I personally find the heat as far as OK. The three AAA batteries last approx. 12-18 hours depending on the type of quality. The built quality is very durable and comes with battery pack.Good for people suffering from chronic cold .
The majority of the heat produced is in the toe area and easy to slid from one shoe to another.Comes with battery pack and lead.
8. Hot Hands Insole Warmer – Pack of 8
Unlike Thermopad sole warmers – 10 pairs of heat pads I have been using them for years for short treks and cycling in early mornings and they have not let me down. This is a 8 pair pack. Each pair starts heating as soon as it comes in contact with Oxygen and for 8-9 hours. These are one time use insoles made by natural ingredients.
It has adhesive to keep it stick with in the shoe but the insole is so slim that you might even forget about them but during activities like running the insole goes at the back of the shoe making the whole experience bad. These can be used well during spectating or fishing. The consistency of heat it provides is way too good than rivals. These are probably one of the best ready to use air activated heated insole available in market.
9. Hot Hands Instant Insole Foot Warmers. 4 Pairs
I listed these already or the pack of 8 and I am listing them again for the pack of 4. These are hands down the best Instant Heated Insoles you can purchase.After my extensive usage of this product I can state that this is the must have luxury(though cheap), everyone must carry while traveling to a very cold place.
The fit is so perfect that you will probably end up purchasing it again after one successful experience. These can also turn to be a good to elderly as they can proof very efficient. For long term usage I would recommend the rechargeable ones as they can last for years. These can be a good asset for short trips.Heating is so good that it once kept my alive during a trek with -10 degrees Celsius.
