Cotton Socks – Best for Sweaty Feet

Sweaty feet can be bothersome and embarrassing because of the wetness and the odour cause. The good news is you don’t have to suffer from smelly feet. Wearing the right kind of socks can prevent sweat and odour while ensuring long-lasting comfort. Socks that are made of cotton are the best for sweaty feet.

Cotton socks breathe, so they effectively prevent sweat from building up as they are absorbed. The material dries fast, preventing bacteria build-up that often causes bad odour. Wet, sweaty feet invite a lot of bacteria to thrive and spread. Aside from causing the bad smell, the bacteria can cause fungus and feet infections, too.

When shopping for socks, avoid those that are made with polyester and nylon because they are made of synthetic fibres that can worsen your embarrassing condition. The best socks for sweaty feet are those that are made from natural fibres like cotton. It doesn’t matter what colour your socks are—as long as they are made of cotton, they can minimise the problems caused by sweaty feet.

Cotton socks are cooler because they breathe, making them perfect for summer or when the temperatures are high. They are machine washable, too, making them easy to clean. Cotton is a soft material and they hardly cause irritation or allergic reactions, so they are safe.

Some individuals tend to sweat heavily, so even the most high-quality or designer cotton socks may not provide the protection they need to prevent stinky feet and bacteria. In this case, sprinkle foot powder with deodoriser on your feet before putting on socks. That should help reduce the sweating and prevent stench. Avoid wearing the same socks twice without washing. If your feet and really sweaty, consider changing your socks a few times a day to keep your feet dry.
