Keep Your Feet Warm and Dry with Footwear

Staying comfortable is usually some degree of priority and this is often even more important to people after a disaster when there are fewer things within their control. If something bad happens during the winter, or in an area where it tends to be colder, this can be more difficult, especially if the power is out. Because keeping the organs warm is required, the body will allow the hands and feet to get cold before allowing the core temperature to drop, so finding ways to keep them warm may be necessary.

While socks will go a long way toward warming the feet, using socks as insulation inside good, solid shoes or boots that keep the socks and feet dry are a definite advantage. Finding appropriate footwear is sometimes more difficult than it sounds but looking for sturdy soles and water-resistant uppers are a good start. Remember that more than one pair of socks will probably be needed for comfort, so choose shoes or boots that have enough room for heavy socks or more than one pair of socks.
