Breathable Shoes TechnologyIf you’re someone who struggles with excessively sweaty feet, you probably know how difficult it can be to find a shoe that provides adequate ventilation and comfort.

Especially now that summer is quickly approaching, it’s more important than ever to have a pair of shoes that you can rely on. Just because is a shoe is marketed as “breathable!” doesn’t mean your research should stop there. Reading product specs and learning exactly why the shoe is breathable is vital. Usually, shoes with a large ratio of mesh are the most breathable, as well as those that are lightweight and contain moisture-wicking properties.

So what exactly causes sweaty feet? Well, there are multiple answers to that question. Aside from the obvious ‘hot weather’ response, sweaty feet can also be caused by stress on the foot. Typically, this stress is due to being on your feet for long periods of time, but it can be caused by a structural problem as well.

With so many great shoes out there today, it can be difficult to choose which one is right for you, but we’re here to help! We’ve put together a list of 10 of the most breathable shoes on the market today.
