Attention showshoers and winter hikers of all stripes – your days of having chilly toes while enjoying your winter sport have come to an end.

Future Boots!

Future Boots!

Witness, the new Columbia Bugathermo – an awkwardly named rechargeable, heated winter boot.

The Columbia Bugathermos have customizable heat settings, special heat-insulating layers, and an integrated toe-heating element that will keep your feet warm for 3-8 hours, even when the temperature drops to 25 below zero.

Right now, only mens’ boots are available, for $250. Might be cheaper to throw on an extra pair of wool socks, but then you don’t get to plug your shoes into an outlet, so I guess it’s a trade-off.
