engine heat on feet

just finished a trip to New Mexico/southern Colorado 2005 Goldwing GL1800 from
East Texas
had lots of hot days 100+, engine heat was bad on feet while on pegs had to use Hwy pegs most of time

looking for a shield to divert heat from Eng away from foot pegs.

I don't know of anything that can divert heat from the foot pegs, but on long hot days here where 100+ is not uncommon I will wear Merrell hiking shoes in lieu of leather riding boots. This is the pair I use...

They are amazingly comfortable, do a good job at ventilation, have great tread grip even on wet pavement, and good ankle support.

The only downside is that if they get soaking wet and you put them in the dryer they can shrink.... Yeah, I found out the hard way. Should have stuck a shoe tree in them before drying.
