Mine is not, but i have encounter some people who have smelly feet, i wonder why it happens to them and how they can get those smelly odor. Specially when they are taking off thier shoes in you house before entering. There's lots of products in the market to prevent it but they still don't bother to treat it. How about you guys, what did you do, to make your feet smelly free? Thanks for sharing. Keep mylotting.

Some people's feet may have smelly odor because of what they eat and because they sweat profusely on their feet. A sweat feet is a good breeding ground for bacteria. When they feed, organic acid is produced which stinks. You can try some homemade recipes using either tea or vinegar. It worked for me. I got some recipes from http://spaandfacialcarecenter.blogspot.com/

Smelly feet comes from the sweat within them.. And maybe there isn't much ventilation in their shoes and between their socks, thus sweat is trapped in there, and it turns into an odour overtime. Thus whenever they take off their shoes or socks, those odour will evaporate into the air and that's where we smell them.. lol Even though there are products which treat foot odour, in the market, but not all of them are helpful.. Some of these odour, can only be treated with medicine to reduce the amount of sweat ^_^ I myself dun experience these kind of problem because i will always make sure i air my feet.. lol

Thankfully, no. Hehehe... But I also do know some people who have smelly feet. Especially at work, there is a controlled area where everyone is required to remove their shoes before entering. I guess it is because they use socks and their feet get sweaty for that whole day. You are right, I think for the people who has this problem, they must use foot powder or try to use special socks for it.

My preteen daughter and all her friends have really smelly feet. I took matters into my own hands and got rid of my daughters smelly feet and shoe problem, basically my sprinkling baking soda in her shoes. Part of the problem at that age is that kids don't know how to properly take care of themselves. They also cannot smell it on themselves like a parent can. The other part of the problem is that many kids nowadays do not wear socks. I had to insist that mine do wear them. http://www.ehow.com/how_4515340_treat-prevent-smelly-shoe-odor.html

NO mine feet are never smelly. The basic reason for the same is that i dont need to wear socks as i wear sandals. There is no retention of prespiration as air passes all the time even in summers and they remain smell free.
