Our feet are more important to us than we think. They are in charge of our balance, our mobility; and they have even more sensory cells than our face. In a way, our wellbeing relies on our feet, however most of us don’t pay as much attention to them as they deserve.

Imagine a professional runner wearing ballerinas when training – that doesn’t seem right?
As you know, professionals need appropriate footwear, suited for their individual needs and working environment. It is essential for their health and safety at work; and of course staff efficiency. Just as the athlete needs professional running shoes in order to meet his target, staff needs adequate footwear to work effectively.
Socrates once said: "when your feet hurt, you hurt all over" which can impede work. Health problems can be avoided if employers and professionals are consciously aware of the risks and proactively choose safe and comfortable footwear. In the long run it will avoid health issues and therefore reduce sick leave.

Wearing socks with sandals has been seen as a major footwear faux pas and suddenly got trendy again this year – that means if you are wearing it right. Many of us still think that even ankle-length socks with sneakers or shorts are a no-go area and especially women renounce socks for aesthetic reasons. But is that really healthy and hygienic?
You should only be barefoot in closed shoes as a last resort. Socks keep our feet dry and support personal hygiene since they can be changed quickly when feet get smelly. It’s totally normal that feet are sweating. We have about 250.000 sweat glands at the soles of the feet, which can produce up to a quarter of a litre of perspiration per day on average! Footwear, genetic disposition, emotional stress, activities and temperature have influence on how strong personal foot perspiration might be.
Here are 7 clues on how to keep your feet fresh:
If you still don’t like to wear socks in shoes try barefoot insoles or shoe liners, which you can change easily just after a few days. Absorbent and washable insoles made of terry cloth material are best.
Another alternative are feet liners. Girls know these little socks already but there are also special models for men that can hardly be spotted when worn in shoes. But sock liners are not always ideal for ladies’ shoes and can get tiring having to adjust them all the time… Be vary of tights, they tend to be mostly uncomfortable, are not absorbent and often contain – such as insoles do – nanoparticles against unpleasant odour: chemicals whose long-term effects are still unknown.
We at Suecos® wish you a Merry Christmas!
