Anyone who's spent long hours out in the cold can tell you that while your hands, face, arms, and legs can get cold, nothing will send you reeling for the warmth of an indoor shelter faster than cold feet. ThermaCell Heated Insoles ($120-$200) are designed to prevent this by heating your boots/shoes from the inside out. Powered by rechargeable lithium polymer batteries embedded in the insoles, they're controlled via a remote that offers off, medium (100º), and high (110º) settings.
They're definitely not the best looking shoes around, but if your goal is to get as close as possible to a barefoot running experience, the Zemgear 360 Ninja Split-Toe Running Shoes ($50-$60) are a step in the right direction. Features include a split-toe design, phylon outsole, tech bands in the upper for greater stability, a round-toe pattern for increased flex, and Gecko-Grip rubber pods for traction. Overall, they weigh just 2.5 ounces, or just slightly more than some socks.
Well, you can't call them boring. Developed in close collaboration with snowboarder Danny Kass, the Nike Zoom DK QS Double Tongue Snowboarding Boot ($350) isn't just a rebrand of the Zoom Force 1 — it features a unique double tongue system to help it stand out — in more ways than one — as well as artwork inspired by classic American military aviation. Perfect for riding, no matter what the season.
Add an unexpected splash of color to your casual wear with the Sperry Neon Top-Sider ($100). Available in four colorways, these authentic original 2-eyed boat shoes feature either a leather or suede upper paired with a bright neon sole to give a pop of color to the otherwise staid proceedings. Coming exclusively to Barney's locations November 19.
