less foot odor

Reason 2: no more smelly feet!

back to "5 good reasons for wearing toe socks"

Why do feet smell sometimes?

Sweating doesn’t equal foot odours.
Did you know? Sweat is actually odourless and is sign of a healthy body function. It only starts to become a problem when:

sweat + sweat – air = microbes

That is to say: when moisture accumulates in an enclosed space, bacteria and other microbes start to form – bad smell follows shortly.
How can toe socks help?


What can toe socks do against smelly feet?

Step 1: separate the toes

The one place where most of the sweat usually accumulates ist between the toes – that’s also the place where it is harder to get rid of.

Toe socks just eliminate this place completely: the sock’s fabric occupies the place between the toes and there simply is nowhere moisture could accumulate. Your feet stay sanitarily clean.

Step 2: retain moisture

The purpose of sweat is to reduce body temperature – that is, if it can evaporate. In common socks, for example, sweat stays between the toes and accumulates there. In toe socks the fabric between the toes can retain the sweat and your skin stays dry and can actually get cooler.

And that’s how you reach the next step ...

Step 3: regulate your temperature

In toe socks sweat can do its job: cool down your feet without creating excessive moisture and bad odours. The feet stay dry, clean and get neither too warm nor too cold.
