It is true that there are many more pleasing topics than one on perspiration (especially perspiration that occurs from choosing a sock-less look). But it is essential to know the right tricks to avoid sweating in your shoes, because when the weather is nice, the socks are to be put away!

When the nice weather is back, we put all our socks in the bottom of the drawer. Because to look stylish, in summer time, nothing past the topline of your shoe should be showing.

When barefoot in our shoes, we tend to perspire. So here are our top 3 unstoppable solutions to avoid sweating in your shoes :

The talc powder

This is an old trick, but still very effective. There are two ways to use it. First, directly on your foot, after cleaning and drying. Then if your sweating is really excessive, put a little at the bottom of your shoe before putting it on: the talc will absorb any excess sweat secretion. Caution: This tip does not work on shoe fabric that talc may bleach.

The Insole

Excessive sweating degrades your shoe insoles and the odor that they absorb is very difficult to get rid of. The right solution that does not immediately come to mind is the interchangeable insole (Bama for example.)

Attention: the insole can modify your shoe size by half, so take the time to try your shoes with the insole in place.

The invisible socks

Ok, it’s cheating but there is also the invisible sock.

No, these socks are not reserved for women. There are invisible socks for men too. At Falke for example, Nike or even Adidas.
