This just in from another list that I subscribe to. If you have a sheepskin, try cutting some insoles from that. I have some sheepskin left over from a seat covering that I did using sheepskin from Ikea. So, I am going to try that. Depending on how that goes, I might try to make some booties if there is room.

I like them. My boots have removable insoles. Because of this the gerbings insoles don't add (a lot of) height.
I used the insoles below freezing temps and was comfortable with them.
You do need a temp controller.
I didn't like the feel of the wires in the socks that i also have.

If you want insoles without wires try these:
They even have a 12v charger so if you're travelling you could keep them charged in a tank bag till needed.

Plus the occasional Triumph, BSA, Yamaha, Honda, Suzuki and KTM but who's counting

Revising my comparision: socks vs. soles
I found my Warn-n-Safe heated pants and socks today stashed in my motorcycle camping dry bag! I definitely prefer them over the Gerbings insoles: no cramped toes, even heat all over my feet, no extra wires to fumble in the boots.
My cold-weather gear is now just about sorted:
- Warm-n-Safe pants and socks
- Warm-n-Safe heated jacket, covered by a Columbia Omni-Heat fleece pull-over
- Powerlet heated glove liners
- neoprene fishing gloves (I know - I need a bit more protection.)
- Warm-n-Safe dual wireless controller
I rode in some nasty wind with our first snow today and was toasty-warm and dry, head to toes to fingers.
