Rather than just trying to keep your feet warm with insulation, the Ekoi Heat Concept overshoes have a double battery pack in a pouch in the side of each overshoe’s ankle cuff and heating elements built into the overshoe fabric.

The degree of heating (and the battery life) is controlled via a push button on the outside edge of the cuff, so you can change the heat level as you ride, perhaps reducing it once you’ve warmed up to conserve battery life.
