Men’s Breathable Summer Slippers
In summer, the comfort of your feet is key. The whole essence of men’s summer slippers is to have your feet in light, untethered, breathable materials that keep you as comfortable as possible in the hot weather.
What’s so important about wearing Breathable Slippers in Summer?
Beyond keeping your feet cool, it’s really important that our footwear allows for air to circulate through to the interior of your summer slippers for the following reasons:
In hot weather, breathable footwear draws cool air into the slipper and simultaneously releases warm air from within the slipper, creating a cooling effect around your feet.
Breathable footwear allows for moisture to be released from our feet and out of the slipper, again enhancing the comfort of our feet within them. So no sweaty feet with breathable slippers.
Breathable slippers will not allow odor to be trapped within the slipper, preventing the embarrassment of smelly feet. Foot odor is caused by growth of bacteria on the skin, due to the build-up of sweat. It is the bacterial growth that causes the bad odor.
Breathable slippers aid in the prevention of athlete’s foot, a foot fungus that grows on feet, and thrives in warm, moist environments such as that created by sweaty non-breathable footwear.
The Best Materials for Men’s summer Slippers
When choosing your next pair of summer slippers, give preference to slippers crafted in one of the following materials:
Leather, cotton and felt are natural fibres that breathe. Not in the sense of inhaling and exhaling, but by allowing air to pass through the fibres into the slipper, while simultaneously releasing sweat (moisture vapour) off your skin, out of the slipper and into the atmosphere. Keeping your feet from smelling and getting uncomfortably sweaty. So these three fibres are always a good pick when it comes to choosing men’s summer slippers.
Leather is the most popular material for men’s summer sandals especially if you want a sturdy design, that is also weather-proof and outdoor-capable.
Cotton is highly popular especially for light summer slippers, and it comes in beautiful prints and colours. Cotton uppers make the slippers nice and light, keeping your feet cool through the warmer weather. Cotton slippers are easy to wear, light and flexible, making them a great choice for your casual wardrobe.
Felt is usually the choice of bedroom and house slippers in summer. Not only is it a wonderful insulator that keeps you warm in chilly weather, it is also itch-free and hypoallergenic. Wool felt wicks moisture away from the skin, preventing sweat and odor build-up and keeping your feet dry and comfortable within the slipper.
Foot Care Tips for the Summer
During seasons of warm weather, we tend to leave our feet exposed to the elements a lot more than in the cold season. Due to the increased exposure of your feet in summer slippers, your skin tends to dry out faster, and your heels tend to become rough and dry. It is necessary to consciously moisturize them more than ever to keep your skin well hydrated and supple.
Our heels become even more susceptible to drying out and cracking the more we wear our favourite open-heel sandals. So as much as you want to rock your summer sandals and enjoy the feeling of breathability, you must also take extra care to exfoliate and moisturize your soles and heels, to keep your feet healthy and happy all through the summer.
Our summer slippers for men include a large variety of slippers, sandals, clogs and mules that are available in many designs, colors and quality finishes.
