Best Insoles for Sweaty Feet

1 Comment19 January 2023  |  Sharman

Getting sweaty feet is perfectly natural and happens to all of us sometimes. But excessive sweat can still be uncomfortable, make your feet and shoes smell, as well being a little embarrassing! If left untreated, it can even lead to more serious issues like athlete's foot and foot fungus.

In this Best Insoles for Sweaty Feet guide, we've highlighted a range of our most breathable insoles, designed to filter out odour and release perspiration before it becomes a problem.

I would always find that during the course of the day my shoes would slip as I walked due to getting hot and sweaty. Since using Cedarsoles this has not happened at all. I was a little concerned at how thin they were as I thought they wouldn't provide much comfort but I was wrong , they are really comfy . I would highly recommend and I would purchase again without a doubt. Delivery was quick too." Julie ★★★★★
