While winter boots are mostly about “warmth”, they also need to be about “fit”. Ensuring your winter boots fit properly while providing the appropriate support you require is critical to having feet that are both warm and comfortable.
A boot that is too tight or short may lead to cold feet. When consulting a footwear expert such as a Canadian Certified Pedorthist, don’t be surprised if you end up being fit in a winter boot in a half size bigger than your regular footwear. The larger size allows for a layer of warm air to surround your foot inside the boot, keeping you warmer.
