Frequently Asked Questions
- WILL IT MAKE MY FEET SWEAT?
- HOT FEET traps your body heat but usually does not increase perspiration. If you perspire, keep Hot Feet as close to the foot as possible because it does not retain moisture. Hot Feet insoles may end up to be the only dry thing in your boot.
- HOT FEET air cells are made of two layers of off-set air cells. With your weight dispersed over the complete insole you will usually not pop the air cells, but they will conform to your foot and show pressure points, maintaining thin air pockets between the layers of foil.
- HOT FEET insoles work not because of a chemical reaction, but because the material is designed to trap the heat and reflect it back to you. So the life of a pair of insoles is indefinite. Depending on the amount of wear and the type of boot or shoe they are worn in, they should last one to two seasons at a minimum.
- Each sheet of material will provide two standard adult size 12, or more for children. if you want to cover your toes (making a "toe-booty") you will probably get one adult pair.
- Our preference is to wear them on the top of the felts, keeping them closest to your foot. If your felt gets wet you'll want our insoles as close to you as possible.
- NOTE: Felt liners, wool socks, and many other well designed footwear are effective as long as they do not get wet. At that point they loose their effectiveness and draw the heat away from your foot. Hot Feet do not retain nor are they effected by moisture, - including water, snow or perspiration.
- YES, poor circulation limits your heat output, thus you want to trap and contain as much heat as possible.
