The only athlete’s foot we care to ever come in contact with are Ian Thorpe’s size 17 swimmers. Alas, we can only dream of finding out if they’re proportionate to the rest of his body.

We pray that we won’t ever be exposed to that less desirable athlete’s foot, the skin disease caused by that yucky fungus. It can happen to anyone, people and is most commonly found in warm moist environments, like swimming pools, showers, and locker rooms. You gym bunnies have to be especially careful. Don’t walk barefoot in damp areas, change gross sweaty socks, and always make sure you’re wearing sandals. We like the selection at Aldo mainly because they have great sales.

For those of you already inflicted there are a couple of over-the-counter options: Lotrimin and tough actin’ Tinactin. If the topical solutions do not work, it’s time to see a podiatrist.

We suggest everyone at the Society for Barefoot Living (you just know that shoe-abhorring Britney is a member) take heed. Going barefoot in public places is not just trashy, it’s freaking gross.
