Houston Area Boot Selection: Keep Feet Healthy, Safe, Warm

As we enter the colder months of the year, one thing everyone will be doing is pulling out and dusting off the boots in the back of their closets. Or you might be going out and looking for a new pair of boots. So what exactly makes a good pair of boots? What should you look for in a pair of boots?

Just like with a good pair of shoes, you want to make sure the boots are supportive and sturdy. Though, with boots, you might want them to be even more durable because they will take more of a beating then shoes usually do with the weather. Even though it doesn’t snow much, or at all in Houston, we still need to protect our feet from the colder weather. Make sure the boots bend in the toe box so that the boots stay with you feet. Don’t buy a pair that is too big or too small, but rather get boots that have about a thumb width from the end of your toes to the end of the shoe so that your toes don’t rub on the front of the boot. If the boots are too big, they can rub in other areas of your feet, like the heel, and cause blisters, calluses or corns. Make sure the boots are waterproof and made from a good material, not a cheap material that won’t allow your feet to breath and will cause your feet to sweat more.

Lastly, make sure you get boots that insulate your feet so that they stay warm. This is especially important with the colder weather, and while it doesn’t get extremely cold in Houston, like in North Dakota or Michigan, it’s still important to keep those feet warm and away from the risk of freezing. If you have any questions, please contact Foot & Ankle Associates.
