Key Takeaways

  • Waterproof shoes are essential for foot health as water can cause damage to shoes, leading to foot pain and deformities over time.
  • Non-waterproof shoes can create a wet environment for your feet, promoting the growth of fungus, athlete’s foot, and toenail fungus, which can cause severe skin damage and even bacterial infection.
  • KURU shoes offer a waterproof shoe spray that can help protect your feet from the harmful effects of water, making them an excellent choice for comfortable, supportive, and healthy footwear.

Keeping your feet dry is important for foot health. Waterproof shoes are one of the ways to help keep your feet dry and help your shoes last.

When we spill a little water, we almost always say, “Don’t worry, it’s just water. It will dry.” For the most part, this assumption is true, but water can wreak havoc on your feet and your shoes. Having waterproof shoes can help you protect both your shoes and your feet from the harmful effects of water.

Problems Caused by Water

Damaged, Warped Shoes: Non-waterproof shoes that regularly contact water can have more than just a little water-spot damage. Water can harden leather, which leads to cracking. Water damage to good leather shoes is bad enough, but what is worse is that water can warp the shape of your shoes. This causes specific problems for your feet by twisting them into unnatural shapes. Over time, your feet can sustain serious damage, which causes foot pain and deformities. Waterproof shoes can help you avoid this kind of problem.

Skin Damage to Your Feet: Waterproof shoes help protect your feet from water damage. When your shoes are not waterproof, water can get inside, creating a wet environment for your feet. This can cause the growth of fungus, which causes athlete’s foot and toenail fungus. These types of problems can cause severe skin damage and, in the worst cases, make you sick through bacterial infection that enters through the cracks of the skin.
