    ok, this is an embarassing question, but what the hell.....

    i would like some advice on what to do about sweaty feet....
    my feet get extremely sweaty even when just walking to work or being in the same shoes for one day. maybe i could look for shoes with ventilation
    also i have tried some foot / baby powder, which helps a little but not much......

    Spray antiperspirant on them or in your shoes after you wear them.

    Leather absorbs odor too.

    And wear your shoes every other day. That cuts down on the odor.

    Wear thin cotton socks, and the most ventilated shoes mother nature will allow.
    Wear loafers, and kick them off your heels as early in the day, and as often as you can.
    Leather is alright, but try canvas shoes if you can. No rubber, vinyl or other non-breathing covering.
    Try a foam insert to give as much ventilation around the soles as possible.

    And, my favourite: scrub off all that dang dead skin after a shower. Use a cheese grater if necessary.

    Don't say eww, you didn't have to open this thread. :cool:

    Good points.

    Apparently, spray antiperspirant does the trick over time according to a Fight Surgeon I once talked to about this very same issue.
