Keep Feet Warm at the Festival of Lights

It’s a grand display – one of the largest in the area. Kicking off on November 16, 2013, the annual Festival of Lights will brighten Galveston Island with over 100 sound and light displays. You can skate at the outdoor skating rink, or enjoy a Japanese lantern and song celebration by local students while waiting for Santa to parachute in from the North Pole.

This is great entertainment for the whole family, but to really enjoy it you want to make sure everyone has the right footwear to keep feet warm during the festivities. No amount of hot chocolate or coffee will warm up those cold toes, so make sure your family’s shoes are designed to protect their feet from the chilly weather.

Here are some tips to keep your feet warm while you are outside in winter. Dry feet equal warm feet, so choose footwear that is waterproof but still breathable enough to let your perspiration escape. A blend of leather and special fabrics like Gore-Tex can work well. Wear two pairs of socks – one to wick moisture away from your feet and another to insulate them from cold air. Make sure your shoes leave enough room for your toes to wiggle, though; cramming them into the shoe defeats the purpose. Boots with thin insulating fabric, or shearling linings, can be a real comfort while walking around in cold temps. If you feel your toes getting chilly, you can always walk a little faster to get the blood going again!

If you need help choosing the right footwear, or if you develop problems in your feet from overexposure to the cold, contact Dr. Marco Vargas or Dr. Joyce Lee at Foot & Ankle Associates in Sugar Land, TX. We treat many types of foot problems in the Houston area. Call 888-784-5335 to put your feet on the path to good health.
