Polar Wrap launching ToastyFeet insole liners using patented nanotechnology from Aspen Aerogels to protect feet from sever cold and help to get rid from heavy shocks.

In fact, ToastyFeet just might protect you from cold symptoms.
As reported by Reuters on November 14th, British researchers claimed that exposing bare feet to cold water for 20 minutes increases a person's chance of getting cold symptoms.

The researchers said that cold feet cause a constriction to blood vessels in the nose which can aid the cold virus, according to Reuters.

'It's clear that to keep from getting a cold, you need to keep your feet warm,' said McCormick.

'In the winter, it often feels like you're standing on ice.

That's because the soles of your shoes or boots are where your feet need to be protected from the cold the most.'

But why isn't your footwear keeping out all of the cold?
'Because most insulation requires loft -- like the loft in a cotton ball or fiberglass house insulation,' said Marc Lebel, Vice President of Aspen Aerogels, 'but when you step on it, it gets compressed and loses its loft and therefore its insulating power.'

But Aspen Aerogels' insulation doesn't require loft.

Its structure contains nanometer-sized pockets of air that can maintain thermal protection and shape even when you step on it.

In partnership with NASA, this same flexible aerogel technology is being developed for next generation space suits.
