Basically any outdoor activity you can think of can be more enjoyable by having your feet warm. It’s not just for geeks, these socks are nowadays used by military professionals and regular people just enjoying a day outside. Even senior citizens and people with chronically cold feet are frequently using heated electric socks to keep their extremities warm at all times.
Electronically heated socks are powered by batteries and keep your feet temperature high for hours, depending on the model or manufacturer. Typically it last anywhere from 3 to 8 hours, with some models having additional or replaceable batteries that you can use if the power runs out.
These socks work in a similar fashion as electric blankets. Small wires inside the socks can’t even be felt by the wearer so they won’t interfere with walking in any way. There might be a small bulge where the battery is placed depending on the type of heated sock you get, but it’s usually located in a place where you can safely ignore it.
