now, we all know that is a really mean and hurtful way to tell someone that their feet are emitting an unpleasent ordour, but how do you put it nicely? or do you just try to bear it and save the person from being hurt? is there any way to make the person aware without hurting his feelings? what do you think?

Hmm... I would politely ask him to put his shoes back on. If he refuses, then I will tell him nicely that his feet is really polluting the room. If he still refuses, I would then start to make a scene. Exclaiming how his feet stink. How he is so impolite as to share that smell with the rest of the world around him. How he has such poor feet hygiene that he could not even wash his feet.... etc etc. Just out of curiosity, where did you encounter such a scene?

I am a direct person, i say direct. But if you do not want to do for one reason or another, you can try to say nice. You can try some kind: "Wait, i need to close the window, smells bad outside." It is clear that will feel uncomfortable, but not like how you say it directly. In my opinion is much better say directly, even if sounds bad, it's much better for both.
