Buy Better Socks
Those soft cotton socks you love are doing nothing for your itchy feet. "Synthetics are the name of the game when it comes to preventing Athlete's Foot," Morse says. "Studies show they keeps foot temperature lower and reduce moisture, the two things fungus needs to grow." Get yourself a few new pairs, such as Nike Lebron Hyper Elite Crew ($20, store.nike.com). No, they are not as soft as old-school cotton, but you'll also be skipping the constant need to stop and scratch, so there's that. For really sweaty feet, consider toe socks. "By creating individual spaces for each toe, these socks increase the fabric's contact area with the skin, allowing them to wick away more moisture," Morse explains.
