I echo the VBL recommendations!
Anyone who hasn't tried using the VBL on their cold feet is really missing the boat!
I often use thin plastic grocery bags, or bread bags or small bathroom trash bags. I find that even the crummiest bags will last me about a week(35 miles). If it blows out early, just grab another grocery bag from the pantry. They're free!
I suffered from cold feet a LOT. When I did fitness walks in winter, often 35*F and lower, in windy/rainy/snowy or just plain cold conditions, using my lightweight training shoes, my toes were icy cold and I was miserable. I was desperate to warm up my feet, and nothing was working.
Then I tried Vapor Barrier Layers for no cost, using these free bags from the store.
It was like having heaters in my socks! My feet did not get cold! They were actually
I used wicking sock liners, then put a pair of thin plastic grocery bags slipped over my feet and smoothed them out, and put on a nice pair of over-socks to hold them up and provide some outer insulation layer. On went the walking shoes, and out I went into the cold.
I have used VBL ever since, and I also use it on the rest of my body in the cold situations that I may encounter. But, the feet were the first experience, and that showed me the way to comfort.
Now, I challenge any of you who have been avoiding this technology to try it for free, just like I did. You all have these bags at home and you have socks, and it's cold outside, and you walk in the cold to stay in shape, just like I do.
Just try it!!!!
I believe that every person who tries this will convert to using VBL. It is a night and day improvement!
And if you have cold feet at night in your sleeping bag, just do the same thing!
It really works, and I'm not exaggerating.
