Should you rotate your work boots?
Whether you’ve been working for 24 years of 24 months you need to be rotating your boots regularly. Rotating your boots amongst multiple pairs will help you recover quicker, feel fresher, and maintain the shock absorption in your boots longer.
Here is the down and dirty: Using more than 1 boot gives you a 40% lower risk of having a boot related injury.
Healthy Foot Environment
The average person perspires up to 12 ounces per day from their feet alone. 12 OUNCES! That’s like pouring a bottle of water into your boots every day. With Duradero we design our insole board to be porous and breathable. Combined with our unique last and Spheric footbed allows for generous air flow in your boots. This will keep your feet cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Proper rotation of your boots allows them to dry out sufficiently. This prevents mildew and keeps your inner materials fresher and dryer which in turn makes them last longer. And did we mention that your boots won’t smell as bad?
How Does It Work
A 2018 study found that rotating work boots slightly alters loading in the foot and kinetic chain with each different boot. Over time, these slight variations reduce repeated abuse through the tendons, ligaments, and muscles in the body.
Saves Money In The Long Run
Sure, it might cost more on the front end, but 2 or 3 boots used in rotation will actually outlive the same number of boots used one by one.
Duradero work boots already give you twice the life with a free and easy resole with every purchase. Rotating multiple pairs of work boots will not only extend the life of your boots but will also be better for the lower part of your kinetic chain (your feet, ankles, knees, hips and back)
