No matter what leather shoes I wear, they make my feet sweat, regardless of what socks I'm wearing. Does anyone else have this and what can be done about it?

Try buying a half size larger, and wearing thicker socks, and insoles.
I wear all leather boots all the time (german, russian, french, whatever) no matter what weather from freezing winter snow to humid summer heat. Yes sir it's been boots since I was 10.

Leather in general make me sweat. I only use my leather jacket whenever it is really cold. :icon_bigg

Maybe you try baby powder on your socks and at the sole of the shoe? I know quite a few people who do this every time before they put their shoes on their feet. Baby powder is very nice for the skin any where at the body. I use this powder when I train, because I sweat and it helps much to keep shoes nice.

Actually this is a very good advice, thank you :icon_ques I can squeeze the sweat off my socks after training. No need to mention about the condition of my training shoes... :cool: I wash them regurarily with denaturated alcohol though :biggrin:

As for leather shoes, well, I can't use anything else than those... The best is if the lining is also leather. Synthetic materials in lining are absolute no-no :annoysigr

update:
I bought shoes half a size larger a few weeks ago, and I have no problems with them.

Well, now that this thread is back from the dead, let me show off an item from my shopping list:

But I must say, GREAT boots. Only thing is those metal braces in front wore out pretty quickly so I removed them. Should have asked when I bought the boots if they sold spares :(

Talkum powder or baby powder works fine.(Old infantry trick)
