Spending Time Outdoors
If you are an avid skier or snowboarder, you know that you have to wear the correct boots for these activities. Do not wear anything that is not specifically designed for skiing or snowboarding, and make sure the boots you have fit properly. If you need orthotics for these boots, Alpine can make custom pads to make your experience more comfortable.
When the cold weather hits, you may still choose to run outdoors. There are lightweight, moisture-wicking sneakers available that will allow your feet to stay safe and warm while you run through the chilly temperatures. Lastly, be sure to take shorter strides as to not slip in icier conditions.
Taking Care Of Your Feet
Your feet can get dry and cracked during the winter, eventually leading to pain while walking. We want to avoid this so make sure you follow these tips on how to keep your feet moisturized and healthy.
- Keep your feet dry by using foot powder inside your socks before you put on boots. When you have damp and sweaty feet, it may lead to a bacterial infection.
- Make sure you wear properly-fitted socks and boots to avoid blisters or corns.
- Consider moisturizing your feet before bed to avoid cracked heels.
