Hug in Boots
Rubber shoes may seem downmarket but they are incredibly useful during bad weather. For diabetics and patients with blood circulation problems, rubber shoes or rubber boots can be absolutely essential to prevent injuring their feet. If you are expecting rains or snow, we suggest you get good footwear immediately to prevent painful foot problems later on.
Here is how you can do just that.
The best time to buy shoes is late in the afternoon. Your feet swell up during the day as you walk around. As a result, if you try your rok wellies in the morning as soon as the stores open, these shoes may pinch in the afternoon. It's a far better idea to go shopping in the afternoon to find the right size of boots, or shoes for your particular foot. Another thing to watch out for is that your rok boots or shoes have to be large enough to hold your foot along with an optional undersole and wool socks. Remember, you are buying your boots for adverse weather and it's a good idea to ensure that there is sufficient space for thick socks that will keep your feet warm in bad weather and prevent chafing and shoe bites.
Brands and costs
Thankfully, you will find thousands of different brands of rubber and blended shoes in the market at present. Regular and affordable brands like Dunlop and Rok are the best as they can purchased at nearly every local store. You will find different shapes, colors and sizes and they are super affordable. However, if you want style and glamour, you will find super expensive varieties as well. For example, the current Duchess of Cambridge prefers the Le Chameau brand of boots. A single pair can cost anywhere from 150 pound to 300 pounds or more. Prince Harry also prefers this brand but we frankly feel its out of the reach of common people. But you like high-end brands, then go ahead. Discrete styles are also available from Rok and Dunlop as well and they are priced in the middle range but they are actually the most comfortable.
The range of styles is endless. for example, you will get ordinary boots that are dark black, grey or tan colored. However, for special professions like fishing, you will also find different colored boots, pink -- colored boots for women and even short rubber boots for hiking on muddy paths. The choice in style and color is endless and every manufacturer makes trendy styles and daily wear boots in different price ranges.
Wearing Your boots
Ideally, we recommend you fit your boots with a soft undersole that will allow your feet grip on the soft rubber or treated sole. You should wear thick wool socks or cotton socks on your feet to keep them warm and dry inside the shoes. Do not wear boots directly on your feet as it may encourage fungal infections, blisters and shoe bites. People with circulatory problems should always use foot powder along with socks to ensure good foot health.
