No, you're not seeing things; those boots are indeed plugged into an outlet. With winter coming to those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, nightmares of shoveling snow and trudging through slush are creeping closer into our realities. Columbia's Bugathermo boots are trying to make those chores a little less chilly with their rechargeable battery powered heat.

With removable lithium ion batteries that can be charged via AC or USB power, these boots can provide up to 4 hours of toasty heat depending on the settings used. Sporting lightweight and waterproof materials in the rubber shell, rustproof gaiters, and Omni-Grip traction, these boots can take any terrain or job you can throw at them. They're not cheap with models starting at $325, but can you put a price on warmth while breaking your back shoveling snow?
