My girlfriend gets cold (feet mostly) really easily. She has nice boots, custom footbeds and good, thin, smart wool socks. I'm thinking about getting her boot warmers for her birthday at the end of the month. Is there a brand/model you would recommend (for the money) over another. She would need one w/ the heating element b/c of the custom footbeds already in her boots. I've read previous forums on the subjects but was wondering if any new info or opinions had developed. It seems the boot sock helps but not that much for someone who is real prone to the cold. Chemical/disposable warmers don't seem to do the trick, keeping her feet warm for a while then wearing out or making them sweat too much. Do they influence the fit of your boot at all? Do they work for more than one season? She doesn't quite have the ski shape to ski hard all day so battery life wouldn't be the main criteria for a choice. Money is an issue so I'd prefer not to spend $200. Thanks.
