Winter is almost upon us, and chilly feet can be a chronic issue. Thankfully humanity no longer has to suffer this unpleasantness with the introduction of CozyFeet microwavable boots.

They make no mention, however, of how this affects the taste of your food; I'd like my frozen pizza with a waft of foot-odour thanks! CozyFeet cost about $US24. [Gadget Shop via Shiny Shiny]
