A. How to extend the service life of shoes?


Shoes, whether old or new, good or bad, have a wearable life. Although we cannot avoid the aging, decomposition and loss of shoes, we can effectively slow down the rate of shoe loss through correct wear, regular cleaning and care, and correct storage, thus extending the wear life of shoes. Suggestions:


(1) Develop the correct shoe wearing habits


(2) Regular cleaning and care


(3) Wash as little as possible, and wear more than one pair of shoes to let them take turns to rest


(4) It is best not to wash shoes in the washing machine or soak them in water for a long time


(5) Long-term storage before, should be routine cleaning and maintenance, can avoid shoes mold


(6) Shoes are propped up with shoe rests or paper balls and stored in shoe boxes to prevent deformation


Second, shoes may also let you immediately injured, should pay attention to what situation?


If shoes, especially children's shoes, have accessible sharp edges and accessible sharp tips, you should be careful, as this can get you hurt in a minute. Any part of the shoe or accessory that has a length of more than 2.0mm where the two surfaces meet constitutes a sharp edge, which can easily cause injury when in contact. The protruding tip on any part or accessory of the shoe can also constitute an injury if you are not careful.


Third, Why is the natural environment of the foot a suitable place for the growth of bacteria and fungi in the human body?


According to DNA testing, a total of 80 to 100 species of fungi make their home on the feet. The natural environment of the foot is ideal for the growth of microorganisms because of the following reasons:


(1) Temperature: The foot is at the end of the body, and its surface temperature is the lowest among the skin, 30.2-30.9°C.


(2) Humidity: the distribution of a large number of sweat glands (more than 250,000), which can lead to a relatively high local humidity.


(3) Stratum corneum: Thick, which can retain moisture better.


(4) Sebaceous glands: underdeveloped, which causes the foot to be prone to wrinkling, cracking, and peeling, and the appearance of skin exfoliations, such as dander.


Conclusion: The natural environment of the foot is the most talkative place in the body for bacteria and fungi to grow. 

Fourth, why improperly worn shoes will encourage the growth of microorganisms?


Firstly, structurally speaking, shoes are a relatively closed space, the internal heat and moisture circulation is affected by the structure of the shoe, the discharge is slower, especially tight shoes and high heels, sealed shoes (will increase the temperature and humidity inside the shoe), along with the activities of the foot, sweat gland secretion, resulting in the inner cavity of the shoe temperature rise, humidity slowly become larger.


Secondly, the shoe material is diverse, leather, textiles and other parts can become a microbial nutrient source. Finally, the daily wearing time is long, sometimes up to 16h, and the inner cavity of shoes is in a high temperature and high humidity environment for a long time, plus the inner cavity is infiltrated by foot sweat for a long time, and the material often deteriorates due to the proliferation of fungi and other fungi.


Conclusion: Footwear products meet the growth conditions of pathogenic bacteria: humidity, temperature, nutrient conditions and dark environment.
