Minimise smelly feet with socks

Wearing socks is not only a comfort and style thing, but they can also help to improve the condition of your feet.

A spate of male celebrities, such as Ryan Gosling and Jude Law, have recently taken to the streets without socks underneath their shoes, but they are all running the risk of collecting a case of bad foot odour or athlete's foot.

If sweat from the feet is allow to seep directly into the leather of the shoe, which as acts as a breeding ground for bacteria, then it dramatically increases the chances of these conditions developing.

One pharmacy told the Daily Mail that they have had a sudden rush in enquiries about dealing with foot odours when wearing shoes without socks.

"Wearing the right socks can help absorb sweat and keep the feet dry," pharmacist Omar El-Gohary said.

"People should use cotton over nylon, and make sure these are changed daily to avoid a build-up of bacteria."

So next time you pull on your loafers make sure that you are wearing a pair of socks.
