Keep your toes toasty warm!

USB powered footwear isn’t eactly new to the novelty market, but it hasn’t really been embraced by the mainstream clothing makers yet. Well, that’s about to change; Columbia Sportswear just announced the usb powered Omni-Heat boots…

Omni-Heat is Columbia’s latest clothing line, and includes two men’s boots, and two women’s boots that are electrically heated. The battery pack is powered by a USB connection, and takes about 4 hours to charge. No word on how long the battery lasts once it’s fully charged. I have to tell you, I think I might have to pick a pair of these up when they are available this September 1st. No word on MSRP.
