Amazon Is Selling Reusable Ice Slippers You Put In Your Freezer
As you're probably aware (if you live in the UK), it's getting hot in the UK.
This means shorts, beers and a general sense of hysteria. On the downside, it also means sleepless nights, sweaty pits and dehydration.
However, one problem you don't have to worry about is hot feet. That's because Amazon is selling ice slippers to soothe those boiling trotters of yours.
The 'premium reusable cold slippers' simply go in the freezer - where they obviously become cold - before going on your feet. They're designed with 'contour-gel technology', which means they stay flexible and mould to your feet rather than going all rigid once frozen.
They're currently priced at only £12.08 ($15.07), which seems pretty reasonable considering you can use them over and over again - or until the heatwave passes anyway.
The product description reads: "Tired feet after a long day? The patent pending, Rapid Relief Premium Reusable Cold Slippers deliver cold therapy to reduce swelling and relieve foot pain and discomfort.
"Our Contour-Gel technology allows the compress to mould to the foot, yet remain flexible even when frozen. Manufactured with premium fabric, our reusable cold slippers are easy to use, and designed to provide total coverage to the sole and top of the foot."
If you've still got cold feet about the concept, perhaps these reviews from pleased ice-slipper-wearers might help sway you.
One person said: "My feet get hot at night, to the point where I often can't get to sleep. These provide instant soothing relief."
Another wrote: "This was a gift to a friend who was having a gout issue. She said when she put them on 'the angels sang'. She loves them."
A third added: "These slippers are amazing... at the end of a day after a good workout my feet get into these slippers for an amazing, refreshing rejuvenation! I put them in freezer when I take them off so they can be ready for next day."
So if your feet are where you feel the heat the most, these sound like they could be a great shout.
I for one am waiting for them to develop premium reusable ice boxers.
Forecasters say there is a chance this week's heatwave could beat the all-time temperature record for July - which is 36.7°C - with some areas set for potential highs of 37°C later in the week, with stifling humidity threatening to make it feel closer to 44°C.
Come to think of it, I might just put my boxers in the freezer. See what happens.
