Enjoying the Outdoors At the Square
Bring your family and friends out to Nathan Phillips Square for the Holiday Fair in the Square. This winter carnival starts December 7th until December 23rd from Tuesday to Sunday. There will be many outdoor vendors for Holiday shopping, carnival games to be played, the skating rink will be open and many great food options to try – Fun for the whole family!
As with any outdoor event be sure to wear the right shoes to stay warm throughout the day and into the night. With the winter weather upon us and the snow expected to keep falling all week, it will be cold and wet. Waterproof boots like Sorel are always a reliable option to stay comfortable and dry.
The Tivoli Tall Boot and the Caribou Boot are ideal for cold winter days and icy conditions as they have great tread and double insulation.
If the weather is wet and slushy, then consider the Out ‘N About Boot and the Madison Boot to stay protected and dry all evening without excessive bulk.
Another sure way to stay warm is by wearing two pairs of socks, especially thick wool socks over thinner breathable socks.
Figure skates and hockey skates have to be tied snug and often the tight fit can cause a lack of proper circulation to your toes. Wearing thick wool socks over compression stockings keeps your circulation flowing and staying warm. Compression stockings are great for allowing a constant blood flow preventing your legs from being tired, improving muscular strength and reduces swelling.
If your feet are always cold regardless of the shoes or socks, then try Gehwol Warming Balm. This warming balm has extracts of paprika, ginger and camphor, which stimulates circulation and produce an instant warming effect where it is applied.
For best results, use the warming balm after a foot soak with Gehwol Fusskraft Herbal Soak which opens up your pores and softens your skin.
Enjoy all of the Holiday festivities with your family and friends this month!
