How to keep feet (plus legs, hands and heads!) warm this winter

Posted by SOCKSHOP

Where are the first places you feel the cold? Hands and feet, right? That’s because your extremities are the first places your body diverts warm blood away from if your core temperature needs topping up. If you thought you knew how to keep feet warm (and the rest of your body!), you haven’t experienced the power of thermal wear from SOCKSHOP!

How to keep feet warm this winter

Chunky and warm socks

Our unbeatable range of thermal socks is just what you need to keep your tootsies toasty when temperatures plummet. Our ladies’ warm socks collection is positively jam-packed with feet-warming options, like these gorgeous FALKE Fair Isle Wool Socks or these super-soft ELLE Teddy Feather Bed Socks.

Our men's thick socks selection has plenty of heavy-duty, cold-busting pairs to ward off the chills. Whether you’re cheering on your team or yomping up a mountainside, fill your boots with quality thermal socks like these Heat Holders 2.9 TOG Merino Wool Socks or these Birkenstock Cotton Slub Thick Ribbed Socks.

Knee-high and dry

Of course, if you want to keep more of you warm in the winter then a knee high sock is a great option. Whether worn under your work trousers or over outdoor gear as an extra layer of insulation and protection when you slip into your boots, knee high socks are the ultimate cold weather accompaniment.

As you’d expect, we’ve got more knee high socks than the Premier League and WSL combined! Ladies, we’ve got goose-bumped legs covered this winter with dozens of stunning knee high socks and over the knee numbers you’ll simply love. Guys, make sure you get in the act too with men's long socks for all occasions.

Boot and welly socks

If you’re going to ward off the cold and wet, you’re going to need a decent pair of boots; be that a stylish knee-length, a sturdy hiking boot, or a puddle-loving pair of wellies. All you need then is the right pair of boot socks for him and her to keep you warm, dry, comfy and blister-free. Guess what? We can help you with that!

Our selection of boot and welly socks has got something for everyone, including 100% Waterproof Mid-weight Boot StormSocks from Bridgedale, let’s give ice-cold toes the boot once and for all this winter.

Thermal and warm tights

Now that you’ve stocked up your sock drawer with plenty of thermal legwear to stoke the coals, it’s time to turn our attention to the rest of you. We’ve got a huge array of warm tights and thermal underwear that are guaranteed to warm the cockles. They’re so toasty, in fact, you won’t want to take them off!

Make thermal underwear your secret weapon this winter. Nestled discreetly under your clothes, your internal engine will keep toasty with this Ladies’ Heat Holders 0.44 Long Sleeve Vest or these Men’s Jeep Thermal Long Johns. Add some Soft Merino Wool Tights from Falke for smug-inducing levels of warmth.

Winter warmer accessories

If there’s one message we want you to take away it’s this: don’t neglect the extremities! Seriously, when you’re cold your body sends warm blood to the major organs, leaving areas on the outskirts of your body – your feet, hands and head – out in the cold, literally! So wrap up well for all-over warmth and comfort.

Yet again, we’ve got you covered. Thought we were just here to tell you how to keep feet warm? Oh no, there’s more! We also have some fabulous winter warmer accessories up our sleeves (and hopefully yours!). Check out our snug-as-a-bug selection of hats and headwear, scarves, gloves, slippers and fleece blankets.

Well, we’re feeling warmer just telling you about all our terrifically toasty socks and thermal wear. Try them on for size and you’ll be amazed at how effective they are at locking in the heat and keeping you cosy.
