Wash, thoroughly dry—and wear clean socks.
This simple yet often overlooked way men can take better care of their feet might seem like a given. Yet WebMD still notes one of the top health reasons guys end up seeking a doctor’s help is for athlete’s foot. This condition festers from shoddy foot hygiene and is particularly fond of dark, dank, bacteria-ridden conditions, like between your damp toes in a filthy gym sock.
Wear shoes that fit.
Although men typically don’t have the same high-heel problems as women, unless they happen to be Prince, their feet can still suffer from wearing shoes that are too narrow, too short, too pointy or too flat. One of the simplest ways men can take better care of their feet is to wear shoes that fit properly. Proper fit means enough room to wiggle your toes and a style that provides adequate arch support. Also match the shoe with the activity, refraining from wearing your flip-flops on a construction site or while riding your motorcycle.
