I can appreciate that everyone may have different feet in some ways, but in some ways they are also the same too.
What makes you think wet shoes and socks smell? What smells is sweaty feet and sweaty shoes and socks, not damp ones.
Who says that wet socks cause blisters? Old wives, thats who.
No idea what is meant by increased wear.
Colder feet is a godsend much of the year. When you are hot , it feels fantastic to walk into a cold stream, and stand there for 5 minutes. Your feet are the most vascular part of your body, and this cools you rapidly.
Feet get to dry out at night usually, not a problem either.
Honestly, damp shoes and socks are not a cause for concern, at all. That is different from being waterlogged though. Just being wet, and holding water against the skin, are two different things.
My own experience is that after days of hiking in wet shoes/socks due to numerous water crossings (30+) , my feet were perfectly normal. In fact, they were BETTER than hiking in socks that accumulated quite a bit of dirt. The first time, I was amazed. My son and I laughed about how scared we used to be to get feet wet. Now we will plod into water every chance we get if its hot.
Others may have different experiences, but neither my son or me worry the least bit about wet shoes, socks, or feet anymore, it simply is not an issue.
