Help keeping my feet cool on a 90

What is the secret to keeping your feet cool in a 90.

I know there will always be some heat, but this one seems to be out of control.

So far we have installed the following to keep the heat down:
New Insulated floor mats
3/4 Dynomat under the floor boards
Rubber Diesel Sound Barrier

Any suggestions is greatly appreciated.

Shoes?

I don't seem to have that problem in the summer. In the winter I wish I could keep my feet warmer.............Flagg

Heat Shielding on the Firewall and under the truck on the bottom of the floor boards. Then a heat/sound mat under the floor mats. Oh, and don't forget to do the seat bases and tunnel cover etc. If that doesn't do it for you then put a heat shield on the exhaust where it passes near the foot wells and under the floor boards. I have done some of the above and it has helped a lot, but you need to do it all to get the most effect. I am planning to do it all if necessary to get it under control.
