Tips For Winter Hiking Foot Health

When hiking in the winter, it is essential to ensure your feet are properly cared for. It’s important to find the proper balance and be sure you are warm enough but not too hot.

To keep your upper body temperature properly regulated, be sure to dress in layers. If you are exerting yourself you don’t want to be dressed in clothing that is too warm which may cause excessive sweating and discomfort. You will want to start with a base layer that wicks moisture and is breathable, followed by a mid-layer that is insulating like a fleece jacket, completed with an outer layer that is water and wind proof to protect you from the elements. Be sure to incorporate a warm, weatherproof hat and waterproof gloves into your gear.

Now let’s talk FEET! Obviously, good warm socks that properly wick moisture away from your feet are essential. You don’t want your feet to get wet with moisture from sweat, and then get cold. This will not only cause discomfort, but could also lead to blisters and fungal growth. Wool socks are often a popular choice for hiking as well. Warm, waterproof hiking boots are essential to keep your feet comfortable and dry in the cold weather elements.

Women’s Boots That Are Fashionable Yet Comfy

I always look forward to boot season! I just LOVE a cute sweater paired with jeans and an awesome pair of boots. However, I have struggled to find boots that are supportive, look good on my feet/wide calves and that I can spend a whole day in without foot pain. Enter Aetrex women’s boots! I love all the attention to detail, not just in how they look, but in how they fit and feel on your feet. I’m going to share some of my favorite styles with you this Autumn.

The Kara Ankle Riding Boot

The Kara is a top winter and fall ankle boot with a comfortable stretch sweater design and functional side buckles for adjustability. This boot helps to align your knees, hips and back with built in Lynco® orthotic support while customizing to your foot with slow recovery memory foam cushioning. It keeps your feet odor free and prevents bacteria growth with anti-microbial technology and has soft fabric linings for comfort. I also love the side zipper, heel tab and side buckles for adjustability and ease of putting on and taking off. Most importantly, there is a removable foot bed so you can use these shoes with your Aetrex orthotics as well!

Chelsea Tall Riding Boot

Riding boots are a must-have for cooler weather, and the Chelsea combines fashion and comfort in an effortless style. I love how the sweater design in the back of the boot accommodates wider calves and provides a comfortable, unique look! This boot helps to align your knees, hips and back with built in Lynco® orthotic support while customizing to your foot with slow recovery memory foam cushioning. These also have a removable foot bed so you can use these shoes with your Aetrex orthotics as well!

Tessa Short Sweater Boot

The Tessa is a snug ankle boot with flexible sweater material that accommodates your movements to maximize comfort. The side-zip provides easy on/off wear making it great for casual Fall days. Featuring the Aetrex “Healthy 3” – Lynco Arch Support, Memory Foam Cushioning and Anti-microbial technology to keep your feet healthy and comfortable. I love that these are lightweight because of the cork/EVA midsole, making them good for a long day on your feet. The soft tumbled leather uppers not only look luxurious, but feel so soft, and look great without squeezing your feet.
