Winter insoles are special because they have an extra feature added to them: insulation. When you’re out in the snow for either work or fun, your feet (and every other part of your body, too!) needs to stay warm in order to ensure that you stay safe.
Getting frostbite is no fun at all! It happened to both my sister and me when we were young, and the frostbite actually deformed her hands for life. We were very young and got caught in a blizzard on the way home from a school Christmas party right before Christmas vacation began. The snow was drifting high and it was very difficult for us to get through the 3-to-4 foot high snow drifts since we were only 4 feet tall. It took us over an hour to get home and the temperatures were below zero.
Our hands were literally frozen by the time we arrived home. The cold temperature had damaged the tissues in my sister’s hands so badly that deformity occurred after her bandages were removed a few weeks later. That Christmas, we were unable to open our own Christmas presents. I had a deformity from the frostbite too—my smallest fingernail never grew up to full adult size on the hand most affected by the frostbite.
I found out years later that some children—in particular, those who experience frostbite—suffer from an experience similar to mine: their body parts that had been exposed to the elements never mature to adult sizes. There’s something about the freezing process that interferes with the growth plates of the bones or damages the DNA permanently.
Frostbite can also occur on the feet, and I can remember multiple times when I suspected my toes had frostbite. I didn’t have any winter boot insoles at that time because they weren’t even manufactured back then. Thus, the lesson I learned was to stay safe, bundle up, and don’t take a chance on getting frostbite ever again.
But now you have the opportunity to have winter insoles that give you more of a chance to prevent frostbite while you’re out there, either when playing in the snow or when working in it.
