When I'm climbing, my feet get uncomfortably hot and sweaty, which results in sore, sensitive feet after climbing and a disgruntled wife at the smell!

Do people have similar issues? Any tips to reduce the sweating / anything to cope with sore feet after?

I normally take my shoes off when belaying, so I'm not sure what I can do more to cool them off.

It works for me.

You could wear some good thin liner socks, they'll help with soaking up the sweat. I know it's not trendy, but there we go. Talc will help with keeping the feet nice and clean which will keep the wife happy. Or wet wipes?

Some shoes are definitely hotter than others, so try a different shoe?

Wear less clothing generally i.e. shorts instead of trousers, a vest-top.

Poison your wife with something that blunts her sense of smell. Try lead.
