Runners can choose from a myriad of annoyances to complain about: sweat dripping down the face into the eyes, unleashed dogs, or unyielding passersby. However, one of the main difficulties of summer running is hot feet. Fortunately, there are ways to cool your heels (and the rest of your feet). Start with the skin and work your way to the shoe.

Begin with dry feet. If you’ve just finished moisturizing, give the skin time to absorb the lotion before you put on socks. Covering wet feet provides a breeding ground for fungal and bacterial infections. After your run, consider a foot soak in cool water to lower the temperature of the feet. Natural oils added to the water can not only fight germs, but also help fight foot odor.

Most people put zero thought into sock selection. It goes something like this: open drawer, grab socks, go! However, they do make a difference (apart from matching your outfit). While thin, cotton socks may work best for some people. Others who sweat profusely may find that a thicker sock that absorbs dampness is more helpful. Moisture wicking socks are another option.

As you lace up your shoes, consider whether or not they provide enough air flow. Shoes that have no ventilation will result in hot feet. This is another reason that wearing activity appropriate shoes is vital. Running shoes are designed to provide a cooling mechanism. If you are working out in shoes designed for the court or for fashion, you will likely miss out on this important feature.

Hot feet can also be the result of a neuroma. This foot condition causes a feeling of burning due to irritation of the nerves in the ball of the foot. If adjustments to your socks and shoes don’t help your hot feet, call Dr. Marco Vargas for a complete evaluation of your feet. Schedule an appointment online or call one of three locations: Sugar Land, Missouri City, or Houston, TX.
