HeatShields Shoe Inserts
Crew How-To: HeatShields Shoe Inserts
Follow along as we show how easily HeatShields Shoe Inserts are installed to reduce heat felt from hot field surfaces.
Must say was skeptical how or if these really worked, first time wearing them was on dirt field as base umpire and did not seem to do much. Tried them again on turf field as plate umpire in 105 degrees in Oklahoma City and talk about a difference going be in my shoes in the future especially when working on artificial turf fields.
Got them in and tried them that weekend and I must say it helped a lot!
I purposely purchased this item since it gets really hot here in Spain and the new fields are made of artificial turf which makes the ground even hotter. I have tried them in my base and plate shoes which have thick soles to isolate the heat from my feet but I don’t feel any difference, the heat goes through the soles easily and end up with my feet scorching hot. I don’t think these special soles do anything. I rather by gel soles for extra comfort. To me they are not good at all.

Yes, the HeatShields should be the bottom most layer in your shoe, then place the Smitty Comfortech Cushion Technology Shoe Insoles on top. The HeatShields are 1/8 of an inch thick while the Smitty Insoles are 1/4 inch thick, making for a total of 3/8 inch.
