Greetings ... now that we are into the summer season, I have a question about shoes. Walking around town, I see many guys going sockless -- loafers, bucks, boat, and sneakers. When I was little, my mother always squirted a poof of baby powder into my shoes when going sockless. She said that this was to help absorb the sweat and also keep the feet from sticking inside the shoe. Of course, I listened. But now that I am older, I'm wondering if this is a good move. Could baby powder actually damage the inside of shoes -- whether simply alone, or in combination with sweaty feet? Should you attempt to clean the powder away after wearing? Any comments would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
