We wanted to share with you a safe way to protect your dog’s paws from Chicago’s scorching hot sidewalks. I’m sure we have all seen the pictures about how to test the sidewalks. Though if I’m honest, I often fail to remember since I’m A.) human and B.) not barefoot.
Local company Saltsox has come up with a breatheable pair of booties to help this summer time issue. Also, they have a grip on the bottom that’s ultra convenient for your older pups that may need help walking on slippery surfaces INSIDE your home.
Last winter, I popped in at Saltsox HQ to take a tour and meet some staff. During this visit, I was introduced to their summer boot and I bamboozled their V.P of sales into recording an impromptu video explaining the difference in the summer and winter boots (see end of post).

Here’s a little more info on Lavasox:
Lavasox Summer Boots have been designed to maximize comfort in the heat of summer. When it comes to fit, comfort, performance and ease of use, they simply have no rival. The thin-sole construction allows your dog to maintain their natural balance and security while highly breathable materials allow air to circulate and body heat to escape. A built-in heat barrier guards against soaring sidewalk temperatures, and the grippy sole works like magic on slippery tiles and hardwood floors making them ideal for indoor use as well. Machine washable, lightweight and tough, you can take to the summer streets with confidence.
Protect your pups paws from summer heat, dirty sidewalks, hot sand and much more. The built-in heat barrier reflects radiant surface heat and the breathable mesh fabric allows for natural cooling. Perfect for when the temperatures soar!
