Walking_In_Snow.jpgThis post may not be for everyone (*I’m looking at all of you living in the southern parts of the country*), but it certainly is important to those of us who have to deal with Winter. When it begins to snow, there’s nothing more vital to our mobility than a nice pair of boots. Sure boots can be a bit clunky, but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t fit right. Below is a step by step way to make sure your current boots fit properly -

Heel:

  • Before lacing, push your foot forward and slide your hand down the boot, behind your heel
  • You should only be able to fit one finger

Toes:

  • Lace your boots and stand
  • Make sure you can wiggle your toes freely without them being too cramped or hitting the front of the boot

Kick:

  • Lightly kick a wall, make sure your toes don’t smash into the front of the boot

Ankle:

  • Stand on the sides of your feet, and make sure you have painless flexibility

Being active in winter is a lot better than staying indoors waiting for spring. A properly fitting pair of boots will certainly help your cause.
