Hyperhidrosis (Sweaty Feet)

Foot perspiration is natural and normal, especially during rigorous exercise routines and heightened activity in warm environments. We all have our own personal internal thermometers and varying metabolisms. Each foot, in fact, has about 60,000 sweat glands and feet can produce 1.2 pints of moisture a day. But excessively sweaty feet, a condition known as hyperhidrosis, can be the result of chronic emotional anxieties, nervous tensions, skin diseases, or even excessive fluid intake.

Even normal foot perspiration can be damaging to footwear. It contains salts, acids and bacteria that can feed on such materials as leather, cotton, and other protein-rich materials. Eventually shoe fibers can break down, crack, and loose their shape. Wearing non-breathable footwear and tight-fitting shoes can accelerate sweating. Excessive conditions can then cause fungus, athlete's foot, toenail fungus, or skin rashes.

Breathable footwear can help lessen the sweat, thus lessening the damage to the shoe. Moisture-wicking socks can add another level of moisture protection. Regular replacement of shoes and socks is also beneficial.

Foot and sneaker care products can also help extend the life of your shoes and keep them smelling fresh.
