Keeping feet dry and comfortable when having to wear closed shoes full-time.

I am treating plantar fasciitis, and the only shoes I can wear right now are some Orthaheel sneakers. I can't walk barefoot for more than trips across the hall to the bathroom. So I am basically having to wear these sneakers all the time I'm awake. In the heat. With the sweating. I'm starting to see the effects of being damp on my poor feet, and I'd like some advice for steps to take to be more comfortable (no itching! not feeling so damp!) and also to protect my skin from peeling.
I could use advice on the following aspects of this:
1. The best wicking, dry-weave socks to try.
2. Powders or creams that will help if I use them before putting on the socks and shoes.
3. Powders or creams I could use at night when getting my feet ready for bed.
4. Washing/cleaning/drying tips for my feet. Any special soaps that might help?
IMPORTANT: Any suggested product must be fragrance-free for me to be able to use it.
