Insulation within men’s and women’s footwear provides warmth for your feet. There are different types of insulation, including Thinsulate, wool felt, and others. 3M Thinsulate can be found in boots, as well as gloves, jackets, pants, and hats. It’s made out of microfibers that trap air molecules between you and the outside. The more air that gets trap, the more insulated you’ll be. Gusseted tongues on some work boots have extra pieces of material that prevent snow, water, and ice from seeping into the work footwear. Cuffs are basically padded collars on the insulated boots that also keep out the elements, while giving your ankles a little more cushioning.
