I've been wearing VFFs almost exclusively since june less than a half dozen days wearing regular shoes and a few more where I had to wear work boots for part of the day. I haven't had any trouble at all wearing them daily during the hottest part of the new mexico summer, but a few days ago I noticed that I seem to be developing some athlete's foot on one of my toes. I figured that, because of the separated toes and the good ventilation, athlete's foot would be really difficult to get in these. I wash my feet and my VFFs regularly, although my feet do come out of my VFFs a little damp at the end of the day (seems to be a little more of a problem now that it's started to get cold, strangely). Anyone else have this problem and/or a solution? I've considered foot powder but I imagine it would turn into a gross paste that wouldn't come out of the footbed. I don't really want to wear socks with my VFFs, partly because they're expensive.
