Excessive sweating isn't just a summer issue. Perspiration is a year-round fact of life, and for some people it can be a real problem, especially with winter boots. Here are tips to prevent sweaty feet:

Dry your feet thoroughly after bathing.

Wear socks made from fabrics that are engineered to draw moisture away from the skin, such as Coolmax.

Use foot powder or a topical antiperspirant.

Change your socks at least once times per day.

Rotate your shoes and allow them to dry out between uses.
