We have not had much cold weather here lately, but I know some of you are dealing with it. When you are outside in cold weather, one of the first things to get cold is your feet. The reason is the body is protecting itself from the cold and trying to keep the core of your body, where all your internal organs are located, warm. That means blood flow to your hands and feet become limited, making them colder.
This is why it is
important to have warm footwear when venturing outside in cold
weather. A way to improve the warmth of even the cheapest boots
is to go to a dollar store and buy a sun sheet, like the one you
put in a car window to keep the sun out during summer. Remove
shoe or boot insoles, place them face down on the sheet, trace
the outside of them, and cut the sun sheet. Put the cut sun
sheet in your boot and put your insole in over top of it. This
will add insulation between you and the cold ground and it will
also reflect your body heat back up into you.
