    Now that the warm weather is back, I'm going to break out my driving mocs.

    I was wondering how best to wear them? I usually wear them with socks (matching my pants) but I was wondering how to wear them without socks. If I just wear them barefoot my feet get hot and sweaty. Should I purchase those little anklet socks and hope no one spots them? What do ppl suggest?

    Whatever you do, do NOT leave the house wearing driving mocs sockless until you've ritualistically tight-rolled the bottom of each trouser leg. I hear the ladies dig it.

    i suppose you could use some kind of insert like dr scholls, to cut down on the dankness. at least it would buffer the shoes and is disposable. no experience with these though.

    what about antiperspirant? i would experiement with that. get one of those rock types, without the aluminum in it, so you don't stain the shoes. scrub it all over your feets and go about your day. report your results back here.

    ps - i would not recommend using the same stick for underarms AND feet. sounds like trouble.

    Do you have good leather insoles? If so, it should be rare that the hot/sweats become bothersome.

    I wear dress shoes all the time without socks. Your feet sweat alot less when you don't wear socks, so it's not a problem.

    As long as you throw a pair of cedar shoe-trees in after wearing, the shoes will smell fresh all the time.

    I wouldn't use any talc powder either; after a while it builds up.
