|How can I keep my feet cool and dry,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych]
I'm a bicycle commuter in Toronto,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], Canada. My feet sweat more than most. In the spring,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], summer,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], and fall,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], I wear closed-toe sandals. But in the winter,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], I don't, and my feet become overheated and uncomfortable.
I did some research today. Now:
I'm considering putting underarm antiperspirant on my feet at bedtime,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych]. Both on the soles and between the toes: there are lots of sweat glands in both places,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych].
I hear that thin wool socks also help and hope to buy some.
What else should I do to keep my feet cool and dry?
Do my sneakers matter much? If so,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], what's best? Perforated leather? Mesh-and-synthetic-leather? Canvas? And how do you know? (Notes: I'm not concerned about water resistance or athletic performance. It something that can fit here or on Bicycles. We had a few migrations from Sports because there has been some overlap with Fitness,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], and those migrations are done because they would get a better answer elsewhere. With this question, I can see this being applicable to other fitness and exercise activities. It can surely apply to people who are bicycling for exercise (and perhaps someone would be commuting via bicycle instead of driving for exercise). Matt Chan Dec 8 '12 at 14:09
Shoes have typically been "running" sneakers which have synthetic leather with plenty of mesh bits,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], and some retroreflective detailing. I haven't tried too many varieties, though. I know on days I wear something else, I can feel the heat and moisture difference.
The wool socks made the biggest difference. They don't stop the sweating, but they're breathable, wick moisture away, and don't feel wet when they get moist. Mostly I've been using short SmartWool cycling or running socks,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], but in colder weather I'll wear taller socks from them. SmartWool makes both "light" and "ultra light" athletic socks. The "light" are thicker on the sole than on the top,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], and generally worked best for me. The "ultralight" are less comfortable, tend to bunch a bit, have proportionally less wool,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], and just generally aren't as nice to wear.
Merino is the least itchy wool around, so other types of wool are likely to work less well. Avoid acrylic, it looks like wool but doesn't work the same.
After discovering merino wool socks, I will never go back to cotton. At least not if I'm doing anything vigorous.
The downside: merino wool socks are expensive. One good pair costs as much as a whole pack of basic cotton socks. Maybe just get one pair and see if you like them,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], first.相关的主题文章：
