The socks that hold onto their promises. Why everybody needs a pair of Heat Holders **

If you're anything like me, your feet are cold 24/7. That it be in bed, sitting at your desk, eating that gorgeous chocolate cake or in the shower. My feet are never warm. I have endless amounts of socks, I wear two pairs of cotton socks in the day - one of them will be thermal if I think I'll need it, fluffy bed socks at night and slippers are a must when I'm watching TV. Yet somehow I still can't feel my toes.

Earlier this week I was sent some Heat Holders from Sock Shop and I was very excited to try them out. The first few thoughts that ran through my mind where how thick they were and how toasty me feet would be when I'd wear them. 

First of all I sussed up the packaging. The red and orange clearly indicated that I was in for a treat, especially with a sticker on the from informing me that these socks were indeed 2.3 TOG. The packaging was giving me a lot of promises. 

On the back there are the three steps that told me why these socks were going to be so warm. The first was the yarn. According to this, Heat Holders are made out of yarn that has a "high performance of insulation against cold with superior moisture breather abilities." The second was the loops created by the knitting technique that increased the TOG rating by holding in more warm air. The final step was the expert brushing which keeps in heat all day (that's the fluffy stuff inside). To me, these sounded very reliable as they seemed pretty simple ways to ensure lasting heat.

Here's a little chart that is situated on the back which puts into perspective on just how warm these Heat Holders actually are.

I was pleasantly surprised when I put the Heat Holders on, instantly my feet were surrounded by warmth and it never left until the moment I took them off (which was a good few hours later). I love them, they are really fluffy inside which gives my feet comfort and warmth, it felt like I was walking on clouds when I first tried them. The only think I could pick up on was the grip of them. What could make them a tiny bit better is those jelly grips on the bottom - I had a few sliding sessions myself! I know that Sock Shop do have a range of slipper socks which have the grip on them.

I would recommend Heat Holders above any bed sock any day, I can just imagine wearing them as a child when I went out in the snow in my wellies - they would have been amazing! I would highly recommend them for diabetics too. My mum suffers with diabetes and she keeps stealing them - the cheek of her. She finds that her feet are often cold due to diabetes, guess what I'm buying her for her birthday!

The original pair that I was sent are very long and bulky so I thought I'd test them outside with some shoes. It did stretch my boots a bit but not as much as I expected. There are a range of heat holders, different colours and sizes, I never thought that I could be so mesmerised by socks! These socks start at a price of £5.99.

I highly recommend these to anybody - who doesn't need a warm pair of socks in their life?

Let me know how you deal with your cold feet.

Until next time...
