Sweating feet - who else has this problem and is there help for excessively sweaty feet?

Yes. There are definitely ways to help sweaty feet. While there is no cure, there are number of what the International Hyperhidrosis Society calls "everyday" solutions that work well. Also there are treatments that a doctor can provide. Sometimes it helps to find an ideal combination of treatments and everyday solutions.

Everyday Help for Sweaty Feet:

- Look for cotton or other absorbent linings in closed shoes. Avoid nylon, as these are not shoes for sweaty feet - nylon can create odors.
- When wearing sandals and open shoes, don't pick the open shoes with insoles made of synthetics or plastics. These can cause sweating feet to become even worse.
- Use Summer Soles absorbent liners. They help sweaty feet stay away from shoe beds, so the chemicals and dies in sandals and open shoes can't rub off on feet, irritate sweaty feet, or make sweaty feet sweat even more!
- Check with your podiatrist or dermatologist about prescription antiperspirants. While over the counter antiperspirants may work for some people, it is our experience that most customers find the best help after visiting their local doctor. Using these prescription products for sweaty feet on and around your soles and between toes can really help reduce issues and cure sweaty feet.

Treatments for Sweaty Feet:

- If you visit a podiatrist or dermatologist, they can talk to you about other sweaty feet help. We cannot endorse or recommend any of these- only a trained professional can speak with you about the effects of these treatments. There are machines that deliver iontophoresis. These machines use a high voltage short-term electrical current that drives positive and negative ions into sweaty feet tissue to reduce feet sweating.
- Prescription antiperspirants that can be sprayed onto feet and toes that reduce the amount of perspiration created by sweaty feet.
- The technical term for excessively perspiring feet is within the family of hyperhydrosis, called plantar hyperhidrosis. Your dermatologist of podiatrist can direct you to medical procedures created just for excessively perspiring feet.

How are sweaty feet helped by Ultra-Absorbent Summer Soles?

Until now, shoe liners have been available for orthotic purposes, for overall cushioning, and as inserts for either the heel or ball of a foot to improve the overall fit of a shoe. None of the current products are designed to absorb moisture for sweaty feet and prevent slippage due to sweating feet when wearing open shoes. This Summer Soles absorbent open-shoe liner has been created to answer the needs of those looking for summer footwear solutions for sweaty feet.

Typical footbeds of non-athletic shoes such as pumps, loafers, and sandals comprise a liner made from leather, plastic, or synthetic material which cannot absorb nor release foot produced perspiration. However, the human foot has the capacity to produce at least ˝ a cup of perspiration per day. As a result, feet accumulating perspiration tend to slip in typical footbeds, causing the foot to shift inside the shoe and even slip completely out of the shoe in some cases. Further, persons with Hyperhydrosis have even more difficulties, such that simply keeping an open shoe on their feet is nearly impossible.

For people with these sweaty feet problems, and particularly those with hyperhidrosis, or plantar hyperhidrosis, Ultra-Absorbent Summer Soles provide a simple solution. The specially-blended wool fabric is not tightly woven. In fact, small air crevices exist between the interlocked fibers. These small air crevices are able to capture perspiration from sweaty feet and as pressure is applied while walking, this perspiration slowly moves to the sides of the insole where it dissipates. The Summer Soles Ultra-Absorbent insolespull moisture away from the sole of footbeds. The result is that footbeds stay drier, and unaffected by friction with shoes. So sweaty feet feel much more comfortable without the slippery, dangerous sliding that would have taken place without using Summer Soles.

Is the Suede Style helpful for Sweaty Feet?

Yes. Our Suede Style of Summer Soles open shoe insoles for sweaty feet are made of a microfiber suede. At the surface, loose and somewhat fuzzy fibers act as one more layer between the woven fabric and your feet. While the Suede Softness style simply cannot keep your feet as dry as the Ultra Absorbent style, they are certainly removable just like the Ultra Absorbent and so based on the amount of feet sweating you experience, you may like to interchange between Suede Softness and Ultra Absorbent. Even many of our customers with Plantar Hyperhidrosis rotate through wearing the two styles.

Hyperhidrosis versus Sweaty Feet. How do I know the difference?

Checkout the link above for Diagnosis. The International Hyperhidrosis Society displays a worksheet you can fill out. It has simple question you should ask yourself. Since everyone's feet sweat, it is important to guage the amount of feet sweating and the affect that it has on your daily life. Questions the Hyperhidrosis Society recommends you ask yourself include things like:
1. How many times per day do you think or worry about sweaty feet?
2. How many times per day do you change your socks or shoes?
3. Have you used or do you carry "supplies” (such as extra socks and shoes, napkins, powders, antiperspirants, or towels) to help you manage your feet sweat?
4. How often do you have to purchase new clothing or shoes?
5. Do you find that you make such purchases more frequently than other people?

Many more questions like these can be found and the Hyperhidrosis Society's webpage titled Diagnosing Hyperhidrosis.

Our customers with Sweaty Feet have given us rave reviews:

"I cannot express my delight that I don't have to spend another summer hiding my freshly pedicured feet wearing sneakers and socks, my feet actually sweat profusely. Now I can enjoy wearing sandals, heels, thongs. I love it..,no more slipping and sliding no even when it rains." Lani K., NY

"Finally I have found the perfect product for my flats. I live in flats but since I can't wear socks with them, I have to go bare. This results in stinky sweaty feet. I've searched far and wide for any socks or soles that could help with this problem but no such luck. Socks aren't low enough so you can see them sticking out and insoles still cause sweaty feet. I am so glad that someone has finally invented a product that solves these problems. Thank you! I will definitely be purchasing more for my flats collection!" Anonymously Happy

"I can't say how much I love that someone actually came out with a product I can use for sweaty feet. I have never been able to wear any shoes that were cute or anything because of the sole, even in prom I had to wear old lady shoes with material because I couldn't wear the normal ones but since i've discovered summersoles I buy all the shoes I want to buy instead of the ones that I have to buy. All of my friends now love that I dont just wear "grandma" anymore but cute shoes that they want to borrow even." Brenda, 20 yrs old, FL

"I ordered three and immediately put each one in three pairs of dress shoes.I have worn one pair of dress shoes so far and no sweating or odor at all. They seem to either absorb or wick away the foot moisture. Thank you and I look forward to doing business with you again when I buy new shoes." Noel H., NY

Hyperhidrosis and Plantar Hyperhidrosis. Who has plantar hyperhidrosis?

It is estimated that nearly 8 million people in the U.S. suffer from Hyperhidrosis (2.8% of the population). Prevalence projections from a 2004 study indicate that Plantar Hyperhidrosis is less common than other forms. The study reports that 50.8% of U.S. Hyperhidrosis sufferers have Axillary Hyperhidrosis in combination with other forms of Hyperhidrosis. Another 25% have Palmar Hyperhidrosis alone or in combination with other forms of Hyperhidrosis. It is assumed that Plantar Hyperhidrosis sufferers make up a fraction of these "other forms."
