If you suffer from chilly toes when the temperature plummets, these could be just what you need.
Jimmy Choo have launched a range of boots that heat up and stay warm all day – all you have to do is charge them.
The ingenious idea could be the saviour of the frozen-footed. The heated soles and shearling trim will keep you cosy even in the bleakest of conditions.
And, being Jimmy Choo, they dont look half bad either.
The concept is simple. The boots are charged by a USB cable, carefully concealed under the collar. Temperatures can be set from 25° to 45° C, and you activate the heat setting from a bespoke mobile app.
The heated soles last up to eight hours before they need to be charged again – so thats a full day of frolicking in the snow, frostbite-free.
The designers foray into wearable technology could be a game-changer. That is if you can afford the £1,250 price tag.
The shoes are made out of water-resistant leather and lux shearling, for maximum comfort and protection from the elements.
The Jimmy Choo Voyager represents the first step into an exciting new territory, creative director Sandra Choi told Harpers Bazaar.
Wearable technology is still in its infancy and our first consideration when developing the Jimmy Choo Voyager was functionality. We asked ourselves the question: What tasks would you have your shoes fulfil?
A boot that warms the feet seemed like the ultimate luxury, but a fundamentally practical one — after all, what could be more luxurious on a freezing day than using your phone to remotely keep your feet beautifully snug? The Jimmy Choo Voyager is a boot like no other.
The boots even have an accurate pedometer, so you can track your steps while you battle the elements. Theyre available to buy now in the UK, and there are styles for both men and women.
Suddenly, winter weather seems a whole lot more appealing.
