Are your feet sore by the end of the day? Do you wish you had more energy in the evening? When you are a delivery truck driver, you log some serious miles everyday. Your feet need strong support to feel good. We're sharing tips and recommendations for caring for your feet and the best boots for keeping them feel great all day long.
According to Jack Levis, director of process management at UPS, the average UPS driver makes about 120 deliveries per day. That's a massive number of steps each day and hours on your feet, the combination of which can create serious discomfort. Good shoes make a big difference. When choosing work boots for delivery drivers, keep these things in mind:
Taking care of your feet is a high priority. Beyond what to look for in the best shoes for truckers and delivery drivers, here are a few tips to help keep your feet as comfortable as possible:
Great Socks – Throw your cotton socks out. Nylon too. Try the new soft wool brands out there, no matter the season. Wool manages moisture better than cotton, and it doesn’t stink. Get a thicker wool in the winter. In the summer, get a lighter version. We recommend Smartwool, Thorlo, or Darn Tough. When the temp soars, some prefer polyester for its wicking ability.
Rotate Your Shoes – Your footwear will last longer and your feet will be happier if you don’t wear the same pair of shoes every day. If you have an absolute favorite style, get two pairs. Alternating between the two will give you more days than one pair at a time.
Understand Support – All-day comfort comes from well-designed support. We did not evolve to walk on asphalt and concrete. The hard, flat surfaces of our world are recent in our evolution. Putting arch support in your footwear prevents sore feet at the end of the day. You need firm support, not cushioned drug store insoles. Find high quality insoles with support that will hold up no matter what you put them through.
Even the best boots for truck drivers sometimes need extra support. Finding the best work boot insoles for your needs means having correct fit, proper support, and durability.
Tread Labs insoles are made to withstand the miles delivery drivers and truck drivers put on them. They have a number of unique features that add to their ability to offer firm support, durability and longevity.
