Summer Asphalt & Burnt Feet

Every summer there are to thing you can count on. More working outside, and hot asphalt. Every year, thousands of people across the country suffer from 1st & 2nd-degree burns due to hot asphalt.

In some places such as Arizona, asphalt can get as hot at 220-degree Fahrenheit! So what do people who outside all day do to keep their feet from burning? It’s something most people don’t think.

When working outside job, such as construction,  you are required to wear heavy hot boots, as well as work on extremely hot asphalt, concrete, and other materials. Even with top quality boots, the heat from the ground will slowly make its way into your boots.

After 4-5 hours of working, a construction worker can have an average of 35-45-degree increase in the temperature inside of their shoes! So what do workers do to keep their feet cool and safe from burns?

Blusol’s Heat Sheild Inserts have been tested on these type of conditions, and have shown to decrease the temperature inside of a worker’s shoes by an average of 32-degrees Fahrenheit! That enough of a decrease to protect the bottoms of your feet from getting burned by the hot ground.

Father’s Day is coming up, and we can all think of someone who works outside on their feet throughout the summer. Why not give them something that will not only protect their feet this summer but will also keep them cool through their long work hours?
