For people who work outside, keeping warm and cozy in the winter time can be a challenge. Layering your clothes is the best way to protect your body from temperature fluctuations that frequently occur during the winter months. Cold weather gear should include a moisture wicking base layer such as a merino wool top and bottom, a mid layer that can be easily added or removed and outerwear that protects from the rain, snow and wind. A hat, gloves, socks, ear protection, scarf and other accessories should always be handy but perhaps the most important part of the body to protect is the feet. After all, when the feet are cold, it can feel like nothing else matters. At Dave's New York in NYC, we know what the cold is all about, and we know that it is important for those working outside to stay warm and healthy. Keeping your feet warm and dry requires wearing quality footwear that is reliable and durable. Here are a few footwear suggestions that were designed to withstand the toughest of weather conditions.
Red Wing Shoes
With over 110 years of experience, Red Wing Shoes is considered one of the most innovative footwear brands within the workwear industry. Depending on the type of job a person does, an employer may implement specific safety requirements but when it comes to working in nasty winter weather, it is simply a good idea to wear boots that are waterproof and insulated. Work boots, like the Red Wing 1412, are made with waterproof Nutmeg Ebbtide Leather, a Comfort Force foot bed, 400 gram Thinsulate Ultra Insulation, Gore-Tex waterproof membrane and Dual Density Supersole Welt. Proudly made in the USA, you can count on this top selling work boot to keep your feet warm, dry and comfortable throughout any winter day.
The classic Timberland Pro Direct Attach is known for quality, durability and much more.

In addition, this 6 inch work boot will provide protection for your ankles while keeping your feet feeling great on the worksite.
The Irish Setter Work Collection (a division of Red Wing Shoes) is known for having a stellar reputation in the manufacturing of work boots. One of their popular sellers, the Irish Setter Men's Insulated Waterproof Wingshooter has provided workers protection, performance and piece of mind for their feet when working in wet, cold & rugged environments. The comfortable, 7-inch work boot features full grain leather, a removable Polyurethane footbed, 400 gram Thinsulate Ultra Insulation, UltraDry waterproof membrane and a Goodyear Leather Welted Sole. If you are looking for a reliable boot that will keep you warm and comfortable in a tough work environment, then this boot is the right one for you.
The feet provide the basis for almost everything that people do, and they are most prone to extreme discomfort and possible frostbite when exposed to cold conditions for extended periods of time. If your employment requires you to be outdoors in low temperatures, the clothes you chose to wear should keep you dry, warm and comfortable. The same should be applied when choosing your footwear. Protecting your feet with boots that are waterproof and insulated should be a basic requirement right next to your personal comfort level.
