Buyers Guide – Slippers for Sweaty Feet
If you’re looking for the best slippers for sweaty feet, you should consider these factors when shopping:
Breathability is important as the shoes need to allow for excellent ventilation of the sweat. The material should be moisture-wicking and there should be good airflow through the shoe.
An Open-Toe Design
Slippers with an open-toed design are comfortable but also allow for better breathability than closed-toed shoes.
Cotton or fleece linings are common in slippers, but they can make your feet sweat more. However, shearling fibers—or Merino wool—absorb moisture and help to keep your feet as cool and dry as possible.
Odor-control technology in your slippers will help to keep your feet smelling fresh even if they do sweat. Many slippers have antibacterial or antimicrobial technology built into them.
Adequate Arch Support
Although slippers are created for relaxation, they should still provide adequate support for your foot. Make sure that the slippers you choose have adequate arch support for your feet, and keep them properly aligned.
Although you won’t be wearing your slippers outdoors, the outsoles should still be durable. This will help your slippers to last longer.
APMA Seal of Acceptance
The APMA—American Podiatric Medical Association—Seal of Acceptance is an indication of a shoe that is beneficial for foot health and contains features that promote foot health and safety as you wear them.
