The Uses of Blusol

Blusol is an adhesive insert that can be applied to any cleat, shoe, or boot. Using Nasa and military-grade material Blusol gives relief to the feet and body. Blusol reduces the heat of the ground whether that be asphalt, dirt, or turf from transferring into your feet. Blusol protects your feet from injuries such as blisters, turf burns, and general discomfort. There has always been a need for a product like this and it’s finally here!

Here are the ways Blusol inserts are currently being used:

Athletes

The surface of synthetic turf has been found to be 40 to 70 degrees hotter than the surface air around it. This extreme heat can cause shoes to melt, blisters, turf burn and can even induce dehydration and heatstroke. Protecting athletes from this heat is profoundly important for the health of the athlete and helps them stay on the field longer. An athlete’s feet are one of the most important parts of their body and Blusol inserts are the first line of defense in having healthy feet. 

Military

Military personnel are required to endure some of the most physically draining training in the world. Hundreds of hours of running and hiking in the hot sun will undeniably take a toll on the body and mind of any person. From 2008 to 2018 cases of dehydration and heatstroke increased by 60%. Blusol inserts can protect the feet of these soldiers as they continue to train at extreme intensities and can protect those soldiers who are deployed to areas like Afghanistan where temperatures have been seen to get up to 140 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Construction Worker

Construction workers or workers’ professions that leave you vulnerable to the effects of the sun commonly suffer from the same injuries and discomfort found both in soldiers and athletes. Construction workers are notoriously tough and work in tough conditions. Despite the stereotypes, construction workers should not be forced to deal with blisters and the discomfort of working on a construction site all day. Blusol provides relief to these injuries and allows you to complete your work faster without the mental drain of discomfort in your feet.

The Effects of Heat

By | Athletes, Construction Workers | No Comments

Almost every athlete has to train in the heat of the day, whether that is in or out of the competition, but athletes aren’t the only ones who feel the effects of heat. Military and manual labor workers feel these effects on a daily basis. Only over the last decade have researchers really understood the effects and potential dangers of athletes training in these conditions. 


Here are some effects researchers find most concerning athletes, manual labor workers, and the military. 

Cardiovascular

When your core temperature increases your blood vessels expand. This causes your heart rate to increase in order to maintain your blood pressure. If your cardiovascular system is compromised, it could affect oxygen delivery. 

Physical

Heat both directly and indirectly affects muscle. There is an accumulation of metabolites and an increased rate of glycogen breakdown. Heat also causes damages to the skin such as turf burn, and blisters. These types of injuries can be very painful and can even take someone out of work or competition. 

Psychological

Heat affects an athlete’s motivation, pain tolerance, mood, and discomfort. All these things can affect a person’s physical performance. In terms of military, or construction workers this could be dangerous where there is a present danger at almost all times. 

CNS

As your core body temperature increases, your brain temperature also increases. This causes changes in the brain like fuel depletion and changes in neurotransmitters. These changes may alter your brain function. Effects such as these can prove to be dangerous in work environments such as construction sites

Blusol

BluSol inserts allow athletes at all levels to play comfortably, and not feel those negative effects of heat. Built with Nasa grade material, BluSol inserts drop the temperature between the ground surface and show 30 degrees, and protect your feet from blisters and turf burn. BluSol inserts are perfect for athletes, manual labor workers, and the military.

The Importance of Being Active

By | Athletes | No Comments

It is easy for some people to find ways to keep moving but others need that extra motivation and that is okay too! If you are someone who has found a sport you love that can be really rewarding and you are lucky to have the chance to play with your teammates and other players. Unfortunately, some people do not have a sport they are passionate about, but it is still important for your health to be active in different ways. Even something as simple as walking for thirty minutes every day can make an impact. 

Building Stamina 

The choice to get outside and move is one that can be intimidating to people. People are worried about what others might think of them or concerned about their own performance level so they hesitate to make a change. If that is you- stop your worries! The only way to grow and get stronger is to continue to push yourself. Set a goal for yourself and always build on that. By continuing to grow on your original goal you will notice yourself building stamina. With the example of walking for thirty minutes every day, making that a habit will allow you to get more out of those thirty minutes. Building stamina will allow you to cover more distance in thirty minutes or the same distance in less time. In order to grow, you have to start small. No marathon runner can make it all the way without the first thirty minutes.

Improving Physical Health

By having an active lifestyle you are sure to improve your overall well-being. Something as simple as walking for thirty minutes every day can improve cardiovascular fitness, strengthen bones, and reduce body fat. All these qualities are important to health and your body will thank you in the future for the investment in your health now. To have a healthy lifestyle it is important to be balanced. Eating healthy is important but is not powerful enough on its own. Make the change your body needs to thrive. Opt-out of sitting on the couch and push yourself!

Mood Booster

Not only is having a healthy lifestyle going to help your physical health in the present and the future but it can also have an impact on your mental health. Use your understanding of the importance of exercise as a motivation to your friends. Maybe you can convince them to be active too. Being active is a good excuse to spend quality time with people you like. On a more serious note, exercise, even something as simple as thirty minutes of walking decreases the likelihood of depression. By being healthy you are helping boost self-esteem and your overall well-being. 

There is no need to wait! Get outside today and push yourself. Never be afraid to fail when you are giving yourself the opportunity to grow. The importance of being active is undeniable, so get out there and move.

By | Athletes, Uncategorized | No Comments

Everyone knows that a break can be nice. But if you want to come back for the season ready to go it is important to take advantage of your offseason. 

Improve Your Technical Skills 

No matter what your sport is it is important to keep training during the offseason. This is the perfect time to work on new skills that you have not had time to master before. Even though you might not be playing all the time, it is important to put those cleats back on and pick up the lacrosse stick, soccer ball, or whatever your sport may be- that way you won’t lose touch of the essential skills. 

Work to be Elite 

When weight training or conditioning, it is important to maintain some level of strength. If you completely stop working out you will be at a much greater risk of injury when the season starts. It is okay if you want to go a little lighter, but it is best not to stop altogether. If you are somewhere with intense winters and you cannot usually train outside like you prefer Blusol Inserts have cold protection too so you can train anytime, anywhere. Do not let the colder months stop you from doing what you love, get out there and get stronger. 

Stay Hydrated 

Don’t forget you need to maintain certain physical needs all year long. It is even easier to get dehydrated during the winter months because of the colder weather. Remember to fuel your body with lots of water! 

Don’t Quit the Mental Game 

The best part about the offseason is the extra free time. Use this time to heal your bodies and remind yourself why you love your sport. It is important to improve your skills but remember why you play the game you love. Use this time to set realistic goals for your upcoming season and reward yourself for the goals you have accomplished. Maintain your competitive edge by keeping a positive attitude! 

Keeping Your Feet Healthy

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

You have the Blusol insert to keep your feet cool on the hot turf, but what about general health for your soles? 

Clean and Dry

This one is very important, be sure to always scrub your feet, and thoroughly dry them to prevent and unwanted fungus growth! If your shoes get wet, make sure to properly and completely dry them before using the shoes again.

To avoid overheating wear breathable shoes, socks and use a HeatSheid Insert. 

Avoid Sharing Footgear

Wearing shoes other people have worn can cause infections in your feet, this includes rentals. Be cautious of sharing, and never wear other footwear without socks or protection on your feet.

Wear the right socks for the right situation

Different socks can have benefits for different situations. Some have more moisture-wicking properties, and others keep your feet warm in cold environments.  Socks made from synthetic fibers generally wick more moisture than those of cotton or wool.  

Proper Shoes

Wearing the proper shoes will do miles for the overall health of your feet. You always want something with the proper arch support, for general walking. For hiking, you’ll want to protect your ankles. Also as a general rule, flip flops are not a good choice for shoe, as it provides little protection and arch support. Shoes should fit, with just enough room for your toes to move around. 

Be mindful of any problems

Any unusual itch, smell or feeling in your feet could be a sign of a more complicated problem. Always visit a doctor for these issues to keep your feet healthy and ready for the next day!

What Makes BluSol Great

What Makes BluSol Great

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

BluSol is a lot more than just an insole. There is a lot of history that goes into it and for those of you that don’t know, this will be a great opportunity to share. What will be shared today is not only what we are today but what humble beginnings we came from. To really understand someone you want to know about their upbringing, their interests, and why they do what they do.

Our History

The founder of BluSol is Rob Becerra. In 2008 while coaching at Stanford University he became the Director of Coaching of the Palo Alto Soccer Club. The club trained and played most of the games on turf fields. When it was hot outside the turf would heat up and he noticed players walking on their tippy-toes, heels, standing on one leg and pouring water on their feet. The water only complicated the issue because now the players’ feet were hot and the water on sweaty feet led to blisters. Years later he had children play soccer and they had the same issue. He wanted to protect his children’s feet. This was the motivation needed to find a solution. Rob began to use different materials with a crockpot to test the temperature. With motivation backed by his family, he developed BluSol into what we can all see today.

What We Are Today

Because of our history, we have always been a family business. Rob is fired up to say that the BluSol Heat Shield Insert works. It helps prevent feet from burning. The results vary based on the outside temperature, the temperature of the surface and the type of footwear you are wearing. However, the BluSol Heat Shield Insert helps prevent your feet from burning. It was originally designed for athletes and cleats, but now it can be used in a huge variety of ways. These insoles can and will help everyone not burn their feet. 

This product and this company will help people, families, and kids. Rob was motivated as a coach and a father to help his kids feel better and play better which later became a company to fill a need.

Cleats in Sports

Cleats in Sports

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

For the longest time pioneers have looked for ways to get an edge on the competition. They develop new ways to improve their craft and improve their results. One of the biggest developments in sports are the cleats. Cleats have improved the level of play immensely. The durable little studs on the bottom provide athletes with additional grip and rapid directional change. There are different designs for cleats in sports and even some other activities. In some shoes, the studs are often removable.

In football, cleats are specially designed to help you make cuts to avoid or make tackles easier. It also helps to protect your feet and legs as with regular shoes you would just slip. Shoes and cleats are often more important than just functionality. It becomes a big fashion statement as well. In the NFL, what cleats you wear are monitored and sometimes players get fined for what they advertise. The NFL is now pushing the My Cause My Cleats campaign. What better way to help people become aware then to advertise with your uniform.

In soccer, cleats are the most versatile of all. These cleats often use in other sports because they are lighter and tighter. Soccer cleats have shorter studs on the bottom to help with running and agility. In baseball, cleats have a little better design because they don’t have to worry about injuring others. Baseball cleats will even have the metal studs. A major concern is not only the protection of the athlete wearing the cleats but the athletes around as well.

In little league sports, cleats are not as big of a deal as other equipment. Comfortable shoes are almost always more important because the concern isn’t just a kids performance. When you get to professional sports, it’s a huge deal. Athletes can make it or break it based on fractions of seconds. Track Cleats show this more than any of the rest. 

Cleats provide a competitive advantage. BluSol Insoles can improve these shoes even more. Cleats are often uncomfortable but BluSol helps you achieve peak performance. Find the shoe that works for you and we can help to make it better.

It’s Still Hot in August

By | Athletes | No Comments

It’s Still Hot in August

It’s time for football! Many Americans have been waiting since February for it to return but it’s still hot outside! Athletes are training as we speak and getting ready for week one. Here are three ideas to fight the heat.

Idea 1: HYDRATION!

One of the most important things our body needs is water. Our body uses sweat to keep us cool but we need to replenish that water. Our body uses over a liter an hour of water to stay cool. If athletes don’t stay hydrated they won’t perform well and will struggle to stay cool.

Idea 2: Turning up the Heat!

Yeah, you heard me right. Professional athletes use high temp workouts to get used to the weather. This doesn’t sound fun at all but on the field, you can be ready for any temperature. A word of caution though, know your limits and don’t overpush yourself.

Idea 3: Use cooling equipment

This is my favorite idea because with all the football equipment on its hard for your body to keep you cool. You can feel like your in a furnace. BluSol Heat Shield Inserts are there to help. From your football cleats to your helmet, it will get hot. BluSol Heat Shield Inserts are used by athletes everywhere and perform better with these insets.

From Monday Night, Friday Night, and Saturday games be the best athlete you can be and be comfortable doing it. Remember to fight the heat and let’s play some football!
