Sure, it can get hot and sticky out there — but summer feet don’t have to be gross. Here’s how to master foot care for men so that you can wear your sandals with pride.
While a regular pedicure will keep toenails and calluses in check, don’t hesitate to see a podiatrist if anything looks a bit weird to you. Ingrown toenails are not a good candidate for at-home surgery; and athlete’s foot and fungal infections may also require an expert eye. And if you have diabetes, callus removal is a task for your doctor.
Worried about sweaty feet? There’s a bunch of products out there to stop them smelling too funky, from the Shaq O-Neal endorsed Gold Bond to the latest launch from Shark Tank stars Manscaped, who have just dipped a toe into foot deodorizer. Your socks have a part to play, too: Opt for synthetic, sweat-wicking fabrics over cotton to keep your feet dry on hot days.
Feeling good? Once your feet are fit to bare, you’ll want to show them off in the latest sandals, so check out our selection of flip flops, sporty sandals and slides. Finally, don’t forget to apply sunscreen — your toes need protection from those rays, just like the rest of you.
