@toddjackson My experience is precisely the opposite; polyester = athlete’s foot and a stench in both the feet and the shoes that could corrode the chrome on a bumper, and the feet require scrubbing to take them out of Superfund eligibility. Cotton, OTOH, comes off with a slight odor or none, and the feet usually have no stink; if they do, they rinse to “no aroma” with just water. Maybe you’re buying a different kind of polyester than I did, but I never found one that didn’t have those results, and I’m not going to repeat an experiment that failed so hard, so many times. .
@heartny@toddjackson@werehatrack I prefer cotton over nylon, but I’ve taken to wearing bamboo fiber socks as they have the breathability of synthetics but the comfort of cotton. They’re quite thin, however, so if you need thick socks they’re not so great.
