I was raised in Southern California, where I still live to this day- but that doesn't mean I am ignorant to the chill of Winter. In fact, in college, I was living in Rhode Island, where I worked 3 jobs and had to walk to work, along a highway, in the snow, after my first car wrecked on black ice. Obviously, this young SoCal girl wasn't cut out for the brutality of life quite yet, so I ended up moving back to the West Coast after just over a month of that regimen. Regardless, I am reminded every year, by my loving family on the East Coast, of the true 'Winter' experience. And as kushy as us Southern Californians seem to have it out here, Jay and I live on the beach, which presents it's own set of climate challenges.
We found the insoles began emitting heat, from the pad located just forward of the ball of the foot, almost instantly, but was never directly hot to the touch. These insoles work by regulating heat within the shoe, which ultimately insulates and circulates the heat for overall comfort. Not only did they works quite efficiently, but Jay found he could turn them on and off throughout his shifts and did not need to run them constantly to stay warm.
Momma taught me that keeping your head and feet covered were the surest ways to maintain warmth in even the coldest environments. While, back then, she primarily meant choosing to wear socks and shoes over sandals, at Big Bear Mountain, I'm quite sure these insoles are a step in the right direction as we move further into Winter.
