Any Feet

  • Wash your feet daily. Rinse off all soap and dry thoroughly, especially between toes.
  • Trim nails straight across, and not too short. Don’t cut out or dig at corners.
  • Do not trim, shave, or use over-the-counter medicines to dissolve corns or calluses
  • Wear clean socks or stockings, changed daily.
  • Don’t wear any that are too short or too tight.
  • Wear shoes that fit.

Sweaty Feet

Some people’s feet sweat more than others and are more prone to athlete’s foot. These tips may help:

  • Wear shoes made of leather or canvas – not synthetics. Sandals are good.
  • Make sure your toes have sufficient room for comfort in your shoes.
  • Switch shoes from day to day.
  • Use foot powder.
  • See your doctor if severe problems persist.

Safe Footwear

  • Look for nonskid soles.
  • Don’t let the rubber meet the road.
  • Avoid heavy treads.
  • Avoid asking a woman to sacrifice her sense of style.
  • Go for a good fit.
  • Take extra precautions once shuffling starts.
