Yes, this is one of the common problems with most of the people. Even I used to have this problem when I was in school, later when I bought some good quality socks, it does not smell bad. Actually, now there is not any bad smell in my socks. Suggest or gift your friend a few good quality socks and I am sure he will not have this problem.

I am not sure if it is called cotton socks but yes, it will cost you more than Rs 90. Once he will start using it, I am sure he will feel happy to spend this much of amount for a pair of socks to get rid of this embarrassing problem.

Have him put baby powder in his shoes so that his feet won't stink as bad when he sweats. I had a friend who didn't wear socks but put baby powder in their shoes to make their feet smell better and not sweat as much.

Glad to be of help. I believe cotton socks and dress socks are the worst for smells, so if your friend works in an office I'd also suggest just having him take his shoes off under the desk when no one is looking.

Tell him to wash his socks regularly and to sprinkle baking soda in his shoes.

I have acually never had stinky feet even after my shoes are a year old they have that new shoe smell ha ha but both my boyfriend and brother do (it's so bad my boyfriends are literally crusty after they dry from the sweatyness) we put this spray we got just from walmart in their shoes which helps alot of a foot powder can help. Really it's the sweaty feet that smell not the socks.

Use some foot powder. You don't want that burning everytime you take your shoes off. Foot powder reduces sweat. Sweat causes the smell. You do the math, if you don't mind. :)

Sockes smell because of the sweat coming from our feet. It's not any disease or whatever, it's just that there's no space for sweat to evaporate and so causing the smell. Your friend should wear those socks that seperate every toes, to prevent smelling. If the problem persist, it will be good if he sees a doctor to determine the problem.

Hi sauravmillion, it's really annoying to get the disgusting smell from the socks. I did come across a couple of colleagues having smelly socks as well. We had a two days trip having sightseeing at a hot scenic site locally. I felt really uncomfortable when they visit our hotel bedroom in different time. The room was filled with nasty smell after she had taken off her shoes Three more colleagues and I like to have our pleasant chat lying on our bed after dinner. We couldn't tolerate the awful smell when she took off her shoes and had to leave the bed before she joined us. I was afraid that I couldn't fall asleep if she had left whatever on my bed sheet from her socks. The same thing happened when the other colleague took off her shoes Happy posting

Yes my shocks smell badly. And it summer days the situations are too bad when it smells badly. And sometimes I also feel vomit due to this smell. So I always clean my shocks everyday. Because I know if I don't wash them daily then it gives me again problem.
