Heated Insoles Probably Won’t Char Your Feet

Heated Insoles Probably Won’t Char Your Feet

GrizuFootbed.JPGFor those interested in having warm feet and tempting fate by walking on top of two rechargeable lithium batteries, Scarpa has announced a new insole (or “footbed,” as they seem to be calling them these days) designed especially for you. The Grizu footbeds have a temperature sensor that keeps things inside your shoe a toasty 38° C, but they also include a remote control to adjust the temperature to personal preference.They’re made for outdoorsy types, so the circuitry has a fail-safe to keep it from exploding if you happen to, say, wade through a stream on your hike. This almost definitely won’t happen to them. The Grizus are scheduled to be available for ~$300 this winter. Make sure the shoes you’re putting them in have removable insoles.
