Dear Icky feet
If the shoe is closed around the toe area and will not let the foot breathe, it will make the foot sweat more. Worse if the material used for the upper of the shoe is a non breatheable plastic or synthetic leather. If you are wearing the shoe without socks, bacteria and fungus can be transferred to the shoe and will cause the shoe to start to smell. Try to wear the shoe with socks, if this is not possible, wash the shoe well inside with warm water and a mild handy andy solution. Wash the shoe after every time you wear it to avoid infections starting.
