Keeping your extremities toasty when it’s cold out can be tricky. Here’s our pick of gloves, socks and gadgets to warm your digits
Seeland Boot Dryer
One of the downsides of some boots on the market is that the insulation is so effective that your feet end up sweating when wearing them. The boot lining can then become wet and this in turn makes your feet cold. Of course, there are clever socks out there which prevent this from happening, but if your boots DO get wet inside, either from sweat or just from rain if you’ve been caught out, the Seeland boot dryer is a great little gadget to dry them out again. It can also be used to warm your boots before wearing. Suitable for short boots and wellies, the electrical dryer simply plugs in (using a UK three-pin plug which isn’t shown on the photo) and is placed inside the boot for fast, effective warmth.
