Frequently asked questions
What are Heat Holders®?
- As far as is known and have ever been tested these socks are the warmest thermal socks in the world. They are also very comfortable to wear, customers have often described the feeling as 'walking on a cloud.'
How do they work?
- There are no batteries, no switches. Heat Holders® are made using a three stage process. An advanced insulating yarn is used to construct a sock with a long loop thermal pile which is then intensely brushed. This traps warm air generated by your body closer to your skin for longer, keeping you warm and comfortable. You can see our video on on our home page before you buy.
Will my feet get sweaty?
- The socks are made using acrylic yarn, which is great at wicking away moisture. Your feet will be warm, not sweaty!
What styles of socks are available?
- Heat Holders® come in a wide variety of designs and colors and are available in ankle, crew, and long lengths. New Heat Holders® LITE™ socks are a thinner fit than traditional Heat Holders®. New Heat Holders® Worxx socks are reinforced in the toe and heal for extra durability. Try them today!
What are Slipper Socks? How are they different from non-Slipper Socks?
- Slipper socks, also known as Hospital Socks, while just as warm and comfortable as original Heat Holders®, also include non-slip grippers on the bottom. The grippers provide better traction on indoor wood or tiled surfaces. Slipper socks are not recommended for use in shoes or boots. Both Men's Slipper Socks and Ladies Slipper Socks are available.
