Market Wire Introduces “Swamp-Foot” Solution for Men Introduces “Swamp-Foot” Solution for Men

Good news, guys! You no longer need to worry

that your sweaty and, dare we say, smelly summer feet will offend those

around you, nor do you have to contend with cumbersome foot powders or

deodorants to solve this often embarrassing problem. Foot care innovator today announced it has launched a “for men” version of

“Summer Soles” — discreet, one-of-a-kind fabric strips designed

specifically for sandals — just in time for the height of the summer


Erik K. Fritz, a self-proclaimed “Summer Swamp-Foot” victim, laments the

need for a men’s version of Summer Soles, having recently submitted this

personal plea to the company: “Great idea, but you know the ladies aren’t

the only ones who have this [sweaty foot] issue…what about us

guys?…there sure are a bunch of us [men] who do like to wear sandals of

some kind…and don’t like sweaty feet any more than the ladies in

our lives…”

Summer Soles are a quick fix for the millions of men and women who suffer

from sweaty feet, or experience “slippery discomfort” with leather or

synthetic soled footwear. These removable peel-and-stick fabric strips are

the first open shoe liners designed specifically for people who want

stay-dry comfort, particularly those with plantar hyperhidrosis — sweaty

feet. Summer Soles provide edge-to-edge shoe coverage, are completely

removable with no sticky residue, and come in both black and chocolate

brown for men and a range of colors for women. They fit nearly any open or

closed shoe style, accommodating up to men’s size 12 and ladies size 11 —

simply snip the heel to size, peel and place.

“Until now, men only had access to sweat and odor-prevention insoles

designed for closed shoes,” said Shannon McLinden, founder.

“With Summer Soles, however, men now have a quick, easy and virtually

invisible solution to help their sandals, and even their topsiders, stay

dry and pass ‘the smell test.'”

McLinden continues, “Summer Soles have been featured in numerous celebrity

event gift bags throughout the Hollywood circuit, but A-list stars are not

the only ones enjoying our unique fabric shoe liners. We often receive

thank you notes from hyperhidrosis sufferers who are among the 8 million

Americans with this condition who finally have an easy fix for their open

footwear. Then there are the untold millions who simply hate to slip,

squish and slosh in their shoes. We’re thrilled to be helping so many

people improve their quality of life.”

A prominent national dermatology researcher is currently in the process of

formulating a formal clinical review of Summer Soles, the results from

which will be instrumental in further validating the need for, and

viability of, this functional, discreet sweaty foot intervention. In

addition, Lisa J. Pieretti, Executive Director of The International

Hyperhidrosis Society, has given the nod to Summer Soles, recently noting,

“Beyond the obvious discomfort caused by sweaty feet, or

hyperhidrosis, the condition has other devastating effects on the millions

of Americans who suffer in silence. We applaud’s effort to

help alleviate the isolation and embarrassment often caused by this
