Step 2 – Dry your feet thoroughly, moisturize, and rub an antiperspirant foot cream or foot powder between your toes and on your feet.

Step 3 – Use a Tree. Cedar shoes trees are designed to keep the form of your shoes and absorb any sweat and moisture inside,when you aren’t wearing them.

Step 4 – Pick up a quality pair of no show socks will give you a sock-less look without the extra moisture inside your shoes.
