As the weather gets colder and we transition into warmer clothes to survive the harsher climate of winter, shoes become more important than ever. In many parts of the world, we must endure snowstorms and icy walkways between locations. From sandals to snow boots and cotton to wool, another thing you may want to consider is thermal insoles!
Thermal insoles are padded with extra warmth and thicker soles to keep your feet warm and comfortable in your winter shoes, even more so than regular insoles. These insoles are designed to reflect heat into its source, in this case, your feet. You can find thermal insoles made with wool, fleece, cashmere, and other heavy materials. They are also usually more absorbent to wick away any moisture from sweating or snowmelt.
Here are 3 things to look for when buying insoles for winter:
- Antimicrobial- This is to help keep foot infections away.
- Adaptive Arches- As your feet swell during the day and shift in your boots, the adaptive arches can shift with the arch of your foot for continuous support.
- Stabilizer Cap- This prevents your insoles from slipping and sliding.
