Women's Shoe Manufacturers Complaint - What Kind Of Moron Puts Vinyl Linings In Shoes?
It's quite common for affordable (and not always the cheapest, either) women's shoes and boots to be lined with vinyl, which does not breathe or absorb moisture. HELLO, shoe manufacturers- -amazing but true fact: human feet sweat.
I wish the people responsible for these things would have to spend a day wearing knee-high boots lined in vinyl, which would be a day with WET feet and legs.
When shopping for boots particularly it can be hard to tell what the lining material in the foot area actually is.
Another problem is sandals with inner soles made of slick, shiny material. In hot weather when your feet sweat, or if you are out in the rain, it's difficult if not dangerous to walk because your feet are sliding out of the sandals.
Who chooses these materials: Chinese subcontractors looking to shave a few pennies off their costs?
