Believe it or not, I’m literally writing this post while wearing these exact slippers. I know it’s only mid-September, but I’m currently overseas and autumn has come early here, meaning my feet (and hands, but that’s a whole other story) are FREEZING. Yes, I have socks on, but that’s still not enough. It takes microwavable slippers to keep my tootsies warm and toasty.
- Yes, you really do just pop them into the microwave. It takes 90 seconds to get the Warmies to optimal temperature for feet toasting, though admittedly I sometimes put them in for a minute and 40 seconds if I’m feeling extra adventurous. This is enough time for the little grains sewn into the soles to get nice and warm, then it’s time for cozy bliss on my feet.
- They’re ridiculously soft. You’d think that microwavable slippers would surely have to compromise on comfort but you’d be wrong. The furry bits are super soft and comfy, and even the little millet grains that heat up on the soles aren’t uncomfortable if you’re walking or standing (though it is a strange sensation to walk on them).
- They even smell nice too. The Warmies come lightly scented with lavender for an extra layer of relaxation, but admittedly, that won’t last forever (depending on how much you wear these/heat them up, I’d say a month or so max). However, you’re never really going to be smelling your feet, so the lavender is more of a nice welcome bonus rather than a necessary feature.
- You can even use them cold. Apparently if you put the Warmies in a plastic bag and pop them in the freezer, you can also use them to cool your feet down, which is good if you live in a hot location or you run a lot or I guess just get hot feet. The whole thing makes me shiver just to think about, but if you wanted to, you could do it, I guess…
