Open Toe Athletic Shoes: Advice For Keeping Cool This Summer

There’s no better purchase you can make this summer than buying a pair of OpeToz®. No matter where you live in the country, it’s probably hotter than Hades and you need to keep your feet cool. Traditional closed-toe shoes are hot, which is very uncomfortable as you are walking around town. Heck, even running errands can be exhausting when it’s over 90 degrees outside and you’re getting in and out of a hot car. How else can you keep your cool during the hottest months of the year? Here are some guidelines for staying cool this summer:

Wear Breathable Clothes

Stay away from body-hugging clothes made out of synthetic fabrics, which will only make you feel hotter. You can keep those clothes stored away in your closet next to your closed-toe shoes, which you won’t be wearing this summer anyway. Also, stay away from dark-colored clothing in hotter weather, and choose light colors or white instead, which reflect the sun’s radiation.

Who doesn’t love wearing a good t-shirt on a hot summer’s day? Our LillyTeez Women’s T-Shirts are perfect for hot weather. With several different colors to choose from, you’ll always find a classy shirt to match your outfit while still staying cool.


When you are sweating, you are more vulnerable to heat stroke and heat exhaustion, which could be dangerous. Help regulate your body temperature by drinking lots of water. Drink caffeinated beverages in moderation, which could also dehydrate you.

Run Fans

During hot weather, cranking your air conditioner to a lower temperature may not be enough to keep you cool. A ceiling fan, standing fan, or box fan could circulate the cooler air, making you feel more comfortable.

Cover Your Windows

As much as we all love natural light, the rays of the sun can make your home feel downright hot. Try covering your windows with blinds or curtains to keep the cool air from escaping your home.

Eat Small Meals Frequently

Processing larger meals can be taxing on the digestive system, which warms your body up. In order to break down food, your body needs to heat up, so keep your meals simple and light.

Wear OpeToz

Your feet need to breathe in hotter weather, and you could wear regular sandals, but they just won’t offer much comfort or support. When you are out and about running errands, you need a good pair of open toe athletic shoes to keep your feet cool and supported. Are you worried about sweaty feet? OpeToz makes socks without toes specifically meant to be worn with our open toe tennis shoes.  These wonderful socks also add to the amazing comfort of your OpeToz, which is a definite perk.

If you don’t yet own a pair of OpeToz shoes, it’s not too late to purchase a pair and stay cool all summer long. With six different color variations, you may have a hard time deciding upon just one pair. That’s okay, because our high-quality shoes have a friendly price point, so you might even want to buy an extra pair. Find your favorite pair of open toe athletic shoes at OpeToz today.
