On a cold winter’s morning you would probably prefer being warm in bed. However, there are likely jobs to do. This is especially true if you work in agriculture. You may need to wrap up, put your wellingtons on, and then go see to animals and other tasks.
A big problem here is that you might struggle to get your feet to warm up inside your wellies. Your toes probably feel like ice blocks. If this sounds familiar, you may be wondering how you can keep your feet warm in the boots. The answer is straightforward; you must insulate your feet. If you are not sure how to do it, we have some suggestions.
Getting creative to insulate your feet
There are plenty of surprising things you can try here. For example, it may be possible to use duct tape to wrap the top of your footwear. Then, you can plug up the mesh if there is any. This may not be pretty, but it is effective.
Another thing you can do is slip a sandwich bag over each foot if necessary. It will function as an insert that won’t result in your feet sweating, even if you walk long distances. Additionally, they are thin enough that they will fit into your wellingtons with your socks easily. If you don’t have a sandwich bag, something like a shower cap could work.
One other free method would be wrapping your feet in newspaper. A recyclable insulator, you can use your old newspapers here if you wish. Fold it around your toes and you are ready.
Double your socks
Now that we have had a look at methods for insulating your feet, let’s go over some other methods of keeping your feet warm in wellies. What you can do is double up on socks. Putting on two pairs is an excellent idea because it keeps your feet warm. At the same time, they guarantee that your feet won’t rub against the interior of your wellingtons. This is one of the oldest tricks in the book, as well as being a quick and easy answer to cold feet.
Wool socks can be good here thanks to their natural comfort and breathability. Additionally, they come in a plethora of thicknesses. You can find the ideal combination to slide into your wellies.
You can go one step further with a pair of tights too. They can go on under your double socks and won’t add to the thickness. What it will do though is increase insulation and give your feet that essential warmth during cold walks. All this is without increasing the danger of sweating.
Keep your feet dry
Something else you should do here is keep your feet dry. This is particularly true if you are walking or working in wet conditions. Wet and cold feet aren’t the most comfortable things. What’s more, it can increase the dangers of fungal infections.
So, see to it that your wellingtons are insulated and waterproof. Furthermore, you can purchase a pair of moisture-wicking socks. Sweat can be equally as bad for cold feet as leaky wellies. It causes blisters too, which are both painful and can lead to infections.
The last piece of advice we have for you is to walk faster. When people speed up, blood flow increases thanks to the rise in heart rate. As the blood is pumping through our bodies rapidly, it will heat your feet and rise through your body. Just see to it that you begin slow and speed up over time. The last thing you want here is aching or torn muscles.
