Are your feet burning hot on turf fields working summer games? Take the heat off your feet with HeatShield inserts, proven to reduce radiant temperatures inside shoes up to 50°F. HeatShields shoe inserts are the solution for umpires and outdoor sports officials.

We discovered HeatShields when umpires working multiple games at the LakePoint Sports complex outside Atlanta in 90+ temps swore by them behind the plate and in the field.

This patent-pending product aerospace technology was the joint design of the Greggs, a Tennessee family made up of a physical therapist, a retired F-16 fighter pilot and their athlete daughter/D1 soccer player who wrote her thesis on the subject.

Say "Goodbye!" to hot, tender feet and experience greater comfort and performance this weekend. Buy a pair for each of your officiating shoes today!


  • Moisture-wicking
  • A comfortable, lightweight, sleek barrier that doesn't compromise shoe space.
  • Molds to your feet in as early as one day of use
  • HeatShields have been extensively field tested.
  • 1/8 inch thick
  • SIZES: Available in a wide range of men's sizes (if in-between sizes, go up a size)
  • COLOR: Orange (but we may substitute with blue due to high demand - both colors function the same)


Slide your shoe insert on top of or underneath your current insole. You can also use as standalone insoles. If you wear orthotics, wear the HeatShields underneath.

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.

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.

Questions About This Product

Q: Is it possible to wear these with the Smitty insoles? If so, how much height do they both add? And in the Smitty insoles and the HeatShields, how many come in a pack?
– Jayden Morrison
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. Both packs include a pair of inserts, one for your left and right foot.
