Why do my shoes turn my feet red and itchy when no other shoes do never had such dreadfull reaction to the point of going to doctor
There is something about these shoes causing your allergic reaction. It could be chemicals in the material or possibly the material itself.
Shoes that have latex rubber in the composition can do this to people with latex sensitivities, which can develop at anytime in a person's life.
If you use foot balms or cream, oils in the formula can react with latex rubber, causing it to degrade and in turn, cause irritation.
If VOCs (common in many materials,) are responsible, the gas will air off with time and the problem will have taken care of itself. VOCs have what is generally recognized as a 'new car' or in this case, 'new sneakers' smell. These can be skin irritants.
The Nubuck may have been chemically treated to repel dirt. The chemicals are not meant to make direct skin contact when they are 'fresh', but will break down and diminish with time - up to a year.
For now, try a nice medium thick bamboo full sock with the shoes, so that no skin makes contact with the shoes. Don't use foot cream. You could let the shoes air out for a few weeks before wearing them again.
If you still experience intense itching, ask a Podiatrist. They are wizards when it comes to shoes+feet.
