Where do you get battery powered socks? My daughters feet get cold easy, last year she had Baffin boots, feet always froze, even with wool socks.

you could try those heat packs that cover the whole sole on the inside of the boot they make heat for around 6 hours and they are pretty cheap also

Yep...bigger boots, air between socks and lining, and keep your feet (toes) moving. Riding on the back is cold.

Don't go with the heated socks. I have heard to many times how they dont work. Like a lot of others have said try bigger boots, maybe a different style/type of sock, and those heat pad things sound like they would work.

Those heated socks are available at Marks work warehouse..... I was wondering if they work as my girlfriend says the same thing about having cold feet and I bought her a pair of Ultimate boots.

The problem is her feet are sweating. How long are you dressed before riding? I used to wear LaCrosse icemans and would get cold feet on the sled. Real heavy boots are made for standing in snow or on ice. Icemans are great for standing on a lake all day. I bought a pair of $34 Itasca boots and they work great! Also ditch the cotton socks, only wear wool. Good wool socks don't itch, and your feet are still warm even when you feel moisture between your toes.

The best socks I have found are called Smartwool they are very warm and wick the moisture away from your feet. Got to keep the feet dry to stay warm

last year i bought battery heated socks for my wife and daughter , both said they worked great. Make sure her feet don't sweat from the heat otherwise her feet will soon get cold. I bought mine at Dick's in upstate NY. You can also use the disposable feet warmers , similar to ahnd warmers but they fit the sole of the boot. Or you can try these. I don't have any experience with these but last year I was getting desparate to keep my wife's feet warm./www.foot-heaters.com/. Good luck
