Tested and Reviewed for Hyperhidrosis Help
"We applaud summersoles.com's novel effort to help women alleviate the isolation and embarrassment often caused by [hyperhidrosis]."
– The International Hyperhidrosis Society Executive Director, Lisa J. Pieretti
Meet Mamie and Karen – two very important people – both customers and patients with Plantar Hyperhidrosis
. They joined our Advisory Board and help design and test Summer Soles new sandal insoles for wearability with any form of sweating feet.
"Before Summer Soles I was never able to wear cute summer shoes. I literally slipped and sloshed around in anything other than a flip flop. I use the Softness of Suede style and they have changed my life!"
-- Mamie Adams, TX
"I like to trim the first one, then use it for a template for the other. I also find that putting the heel in 1st works best."
How long they last:
"I have two kids and am very active throughout the day. If I wear the same open-toe shoes all day, and through the week, they'll last me about 7 days. When I rotate through my footwear throughout the week – they last much longer before I pop a new one in."
Hyperhidrosis vs Sweaty Feet. How do I know the difference?
"I finally have the freedom to wear sandals without embarrassment. They're easy to use, work with all my shoes and are very inexpensive."
-- Karen Noel, PA
"Change them out more frequently when it's hot and humid."
How long they last:
"I let them air out between wearings. A 3-pack will last about 12 weeks."
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 gauge 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 International Hyperhidrosis Society's webpage titled Diagnosing Hyperhidrosis.

When used in combination with Summer Soles, many customers find foot deodorant or prescription hyperhidrosis deodorant make wearing summer footwear a joy again. We're big fans of trying simple steps first, so do try this combination – it may be just the thing you've been looking for.
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."
