sockmonkeyOh, this is depressing, but I admit it makes sense. There is nothing we can do, short of wearing those very impressive boots. But if this true, why doesn't everyone have athlete's foot? Maybe it is harder to contract from a shower floor than I thought.
Just make sure your feet are completely dry when you slip on your shoes.
Proper hygiene too - washing the feet after wearing shoes all day. And I try to wear open footwear whenever I can.
I wear flipflops in the bathroom, but then again, I go barefoot around the house sometimes.
Sandals and flipflops especially with shallow depressions to fit the foot contour are especially prone to collecting moisture. After showering or getting yourself wet, they often retain enough moisture to foster the growth of athlete's foot.
Just make sure your feet are completely dry, that's it, I guess.
Ever since I posted the pic of them, my email box has been flooded with inquiries!!
I am not sure they are available in Ireland.. You might have to just look at the pics and imagine how good they would look on you...
Do they come in pink with inlaid precious metals?
