Besides your underarms, your feet are the most likely to reek when it gets hot enough out to break a sweat. There are ways around this!
For one, wear sandals or flip-flops, because they let your feet breathe–which makes them less likely to sweat, and if they do, they won’t harbor as much of an odor. (Plus, it’s a great excuse for a pedi!)
If you must wear closed shoes, opt for leather ones. Whichever shoes you sport, be sure to rotate ‘em–giving them a chance to air out will minimize the opportunity for odors to grow. Don’t be afraid to use a foot odor spray in your shoes, too!
Do your feet sweat a lot and sometimes feel slippery in your shoes? Consider a moisture-absorbing insole or a foot powder to absorb the sweat.
If your shoes get stinky, leave them outside in the sun. Somewhat ironically, the same thing that makes you all hot and stinky to begin with will also kill the bacteria in your sneaks that made them smell!
What to avoid? Canvas sneakers will soak up sweat and get stinky, so chuck your Chucks in the back of your closet til September!
