SMELLY FEET, HOW TO TREAT THEM?

EVERYONE KNOWS THE FEELING WHEN YOU TAKE OFF YOUR SHOES AFTER A LONG DAY AT WORK. YOU GET USED TO YOUR OWN SMELL, BUT BELIEVE US  OTHER PEOPLE WON’T. IN THE PRESENT TIME OF SNEAKERS, THE PROBLEM HAS ONLY GROWN. EVEN YOUR SNEAKERS CAN'T GET RID OF THAT SMELL ANYMORE.

Sweating is a natural reaction of your body to control a higher body temperature and thus get rid of the excess heat. The elevated body temperature can occur during warm weather, during tension or stress, during hormonal processes (menopause, puberty, ...) ... in short, anyone can suffer from it. 

 

62% OF ADULTS AND EVEN 80% OF YOUNG PEOPLE SUFFER FROM SWEATY FEET.  

 

HOW DO THESE PERFUMED SWEATY FEET COME ABOUT?

Everyone sweats and this is a completely natural recurrence of your body, but not everyone's sweat smells strong. The unpleasant smell comes from the bacteria that are everywhere on your body. These bacteria like damp and warm spots like in your shoes. The bacteria multiply in this environment. The more bacteria, the more smelly perspiration. So the less bacteria, the less odour. Sweat is odourless and does not need to be fought. So sweating is not the problem, but those annoying bacteria are.

HOW CAN YOU FIGHT THESE BACTERIA?

To get rid of this problem, there are some solutions. Ventilating and cleaning your shoes to keep them clean and tidy is the most important thing. However, you have to do this regularly. Strangely enough, we change our socks every day, but the shoes are never cleaned. An even better solution is to wear smart textiles*, in this case smart socks.

SOCKS AGAINST SWEATY FEET AND BACTERIA

Most people wear daily socks and that is very important when you have sweaty feet. (Wearing shoes barefoot is a recipe for a disaster). 

Your socks should help to drift away the moisture (ventilate). Cotton is usually the best type of textile for this. Wool is also a good choice but bamboo seels to be the best as it wicks twice the amount of moisture away than cotton. Synthetic materials usually do not help as well. When you wear socks then you can keep your feet dry and avoid so less bacterial growth.

But just wearing socks doesn’t help in killing the bacteria, it only helps to prevent them from multiplying so quickly. So a good solution would be to add a bacteria killing material to the socks … silver

SOCKS WITH PURE SILVER STOP SWEATY AIR

Silver has been used in the medical world as an antibacterial, so that is proving to be very effective. Silver socks directly kill the bacteria on the foot, on the sock and even after awhile in your sneakers. Even if you already have sweaty feet, silver socks can make sure that the odor vanishes within 1 hour and that the bacteria are killed. Another nice effect of silver wire socks is that the silver ions help the moisture of sweat evaporate faster so that your feet stay drier. 

On our website you will find a nice assortment of socks that help to prevent sweaty feet from getting odours (note: sweating itself will not be reduced.)

 

*Smart textiles are materials that can react or adapt to external stimuli or changing environmental conditions. The stimuli can include changes in temperature, moisture, pH, chemical sources, electric or magnetic fields, or stress.
