Goodbye to the closed shoe but with caution
During hot months, we usually stop using a more closed and tight footwear and replace it with a more open one, but it is essential to take into account some aspects in that choice to avoid putting the health of the foot at risk.
Footwear must always be made of leather. A breathable footwear allows the foot not to overheat and thus avoid the appearance of fungus and other skin problems, as well as excessive sweating or the appearance of ingrown toenails. The use of cotton socks is abandoned and it is replaced by synthetic stocking socks or we leave the foot in direct contact with the shoe -add Chaqués-, and for that reason we must avoid synthetic materials of fabric or plastic that favor excess sweating Since in the event that the footwear is not comfortable and the foot is not properly treated and hydrated, painful blisters or abrasions appear, with sports shoes, their use should be limited to sports practice and better with cotton socks. This type of footwear facilitates sweating and overheating of the foot, being a good breeding ground for fungi.
