Taking measures to keep your feet dry in summer becomes essential to prevent fungal growth. The best option for women should be thigh high socks, made from natural fibers.

Cotton does not only absorb moisture but also trap heat. If your feet are not allowed to air-dry; the moisture rich environment with the heat, trapped inside shoes will create a very friendly environment for bacterial growth.
Cotton socks do not only absorb moisture but also retain it thus keep your feet wet. This leads to stinky shoes & bad odor in feet. Follow these tips to keep your feet dry & fresh in summer. If nothing works, try switching to woolen socks. Wool is also a natural fiber with great moisture wicking abilities. It quickly absorbs moisture from your feet and wick it off, keeping your feet dry.
