The Item: Weighted Sleeping Boots

Purported Health Benefits: Encourages deeper sleep, reduces cramping, prevents feet from floating away during the night

Usage: Easy to put on, Velcro straps save time wasted on lacing, challenging to fill with sand or water while wearing boots due the side-mounted filling valves, may require extra blankets to fully cover increased foot size, comfortable interior feels like your feet are inside a high quality pool shoe not a dead person’s skin

Concerns: Tricksters filling boots with helium during the night may result in sleeper being suspended upside down from ceiling for extended amounts of time

FDA Recommendation: Pending review
