It’s a great feeling when the weather starts to warm up and you can put away your winter boots and whip out those cute woven shoes and funky flatforms for a few months. A lot of us love the feeling of our feet going al fresco but having a good summer sneaker is still a must, whether you prefer the comfort of a flat shoe or just need something to walk to work in before you slip on your wedges or high heels.
But wearing socks with sneakers in the summer isn’t our favorite. Between the sweltering heat and switching your shoes at the office, there’s nothing worse than steamy socks. That’s why, if you’re looking to forgo socks with your footwear, the key is to look for sneakers that are made with breathable materials like canvas or leather. It helps to have an antimicrobial lining to prevent bacteria or odor buildup. Machine-washable shoes are also great because you can toss them in the laundry.
Below, we’ve rounded up 10 of the best sneakers you can wear without socks that won’t leave your feet sweaty or smelly. And if you want more of our editor-sourced products and reviews, sign up for HuffPost’s sales and deals newsletter.
