Best Heated Insoles of 2022
Keeping your feet warm helps keep the rest of your body nice and toasty and nothing drains heat away from your core more than wet and cold tootsies. Heated insoles can keep your feet nice and warm regardless of whether you are bombing down a mountain on skis, sitting at the lake ice fishing or hiking through a forest.
Heated insoles come in a couple of different varieties, some have batteries built into the insole while others have batteries that strap around your leg and connect to the insoles via a wire. While the second method sounds a bit weird, you really don’t notice the battery after a few minutes.
Strapping the battery to your leg means a bigger battery that will last longer when you are out and about. You can get almost 10 hours out of the Aroma Season heated insoles while the longest lasting insole with the rechargeable battery built-in gets about 5 hours. However, there is no denying that the built-in battery is a bit more convenient.
Heated insoles are not only great for hiking or just walking around town on a cold day, they can take your skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing to a whole new level, it’s easy to stay out on the slopes when your feet are toasty. Numerous reviewers used those insoles in ski boots and loved them.
If your feet are tired of being cold, slip some heated insoles into your shoes and get out there. There is not a huge selection of heated insoles that meet our criteria, but we have full faith in these four and are happy to recommend them.

Most reviewers didn't think it was a big deal as they turned them on before putting them in their shoes and rarely changed the setting. One reviewer pointed out that the remote must be paired to the insoles which may be why some reviewers had issues.

These reviews were a bit hit and miss with these insoles. The big issue seemed to be the size of the heel.
