An air cavity allowing foot heat and moisture to escape the immediate foot area and exhaust into free open space is used. A dual-layer sole system which is integrated in a manner to form an air cavity therebetween is also utilized. A series of perforations and/or cutouts are used to facilitate foot-air and moisture flow. A plurality of ventilation ports are used to facilitate bi-directional air exchange and circulation.
