Secondly, a powder will not last all day. Not even close. And when it wears off, your feet will start sweating and you will be right back where you started.

Shoes “Without Socks” Done Right
The best way to wear shoes without socks is actually to not wear shoes without socks. But, in this case, we are not talking about calf-length or over-the-calf socks.
Giving the bare ankle illusion that you are going sockless without the detrimental sweat or stench is best accomplished with a pair of “peds”, which are also often referred to as no-show or loafer socks.
They are small and cannot be seen in your shoe (unless, you are really looking for them). They wick the sweat (and smell) away.
Have a blessed weekend.
