Wearing slippers is a smart thing to do because by doing so, you protect your feet while feeling comfortable and fresh at the same time. And since you use them in order to feel relaxed, you don’t really want them to cause you any stress or discomfort.
Footwear which causes excessive feet sweating aren’t popular at all, precisely because of that reason so people don’t buy them unless they do it by accident. Instead they buy those which provide cool sensation in the summer or warm sensation in the winter.
But what if it’s not the slippers that are to blame, what if your feet sweat abundantly on their own? Well in that case, you need a kind of slippers that can help you prevent that, obviously. What slippers are those? Let’s find out together.
How to choose no sweat slippers
Having your feet sweaty for a prolonged period of time can turn into a serious problem. It’s not just about the smell or discomfort, real health issues could occur due to this issue. Some of the soldiers who fought in the Vietnam and Korea even lost their lives because their feet remained soaked for a very long time which in turn caused serious infections that went bad really fast.
So it’s pretty clear that your feet must stay dry but how can you achieve that? With proper footwear of course. Since we’re talking about slippers now, here’s what you need from them if you have sweaty feet.
First they need to be made from fabrics that don’t cause sweating. Synthetic materials usually fail at this and cause your feet to get steamed and moist. Natural fabrics mostly perform well here but it’s not a rule or a certainty. However, they come short in another area which is evaporation, but we’ll get to that a bit later. Proper blends of both are perhaps the best in this segment along with the natural materials.
The next important thing is absorption and evaporation. These two must be in sync because if they aren’t and let’s say your slippers absorb sweat well but don’t evaporate it, you might end up in a tough spot since you can get fungus infection or similar troubles this way. So the fabric must quickly absorb the sweat you produce but also quickly evaporate it, leaving your feet clean and dry. Proper blends of natural and synthetic or two or more adequate natural materials usually have these characteristics. Think of sport jerseys but for your feet.
Now that we know what to look for when choosing new slippers, it’s about time we take a look at some good no sweat pair of slippers.

Before we part ways, we want to answer a couple of frequently asked questions that may be bothering you as well. Because that’s just how nice we are.
Why do my feet sweat so much?
There are two main reasons why your feet are sweating excessively. First one is technical while the second one is medical. Let’s start with the technical one.
It’s quite simple actually, bad footwear. If you get yourself some shoes or sneakers or even slippers which don’t possess the proper moisture and temperature management properties, your feet will surely sweat a lot. This is what separates the quality footwear from the lousy ones, and the price tag usually follows it. Those ridiculously expensive basketball sneakers aren’t that pricey only because a big famous company makes them, that’s just half of it. The other half of the price comes from quality. Can you imagine how much do NBA players sweat during a game? They never go to the toilet even though they drink like a gallon of water on each timeout. That’s because they sweat all those fluids out. But their feet stay dry enough, all thanks to the footwear. So if you have adequate footwear, your feet shouldn’t sweat that much.
The other reason is medical and it’s a condition called hyperhidrosis. This problem is usually inherited and you can’t catch it from someone like a cold. People with this condition sweat a lot even when it’s not very hot outside.
How to prevent sweaty feet?
You can prevent sweaty feet with proper quality footwear. If by any chance that doesn’t help then you might have hyperhidrosis and you should consult your doctor.
But even if you have it, there’s no need to worry. You can take some medications which will help you with that. Unfortunately you can’t cure it but if you keep your hygiene levels at top, it won’t affect your life in any way.
However there are a few things you can do to reduce excessive sweating of your feet:
- keep good hygiene – that translates to washing well your feet daily and changing your socks every day
- avoid constrictive shoes and slippers
- don’t wear damp shoes and dry them well. If possible rotate your shoes – apart from letting them dry properly, you will also improve their lifespan
- help absorb moisture by applying foot powder or baking soda inside your shoes
