How To: Insulate your feet from the cold

Insulate your feet from the cold

Going hiking in the rough cold? You might want to watch this video first. Your toes are the most vulnerable part of your body when it comes to the cold. Keep them – and the rest of your feet – toasty with these steps.


You Will Need:
• Two pairs of cotton socks
• Waterproof shoes or boots


Step 1: Keep them dry
Sweaty feet become cold feet after a few hours in cold weather. Make sure you feet are dry before you put your socks on.

Step 2: Put on cotton socks
Slide on a pair of cotton socks. Make sure they're not wool or synthetic: Both can trap moisture.

Step 3: Smooth out wrinkles
Smooth out the wrinkles in your socks so they don't jam between your toes.

Step 4: Slip on your shoes
Slip on your waterproof shoes or boots.

Step 5: Walk on water
Go ahead – walk right through that puddle. Just bring along an extra pair of socks in case your boots aren't as waterproof as you thought.

Trivia: When hiking, the temperature drops an average of 2 ½ degrees Fahrenheit for every 1,000 feet you climb.
