    wear sandals for a while? air those stinkers out?

    baby powder when you put on your socks?

    change your socks twice daily?

    put fragrant plants in your shoe/socks?

    something like that....?

    Wow, baby powder in the socks is a really good idea!

    Thanks. I'll give that a shot.

    I also realize that my shoes have zero ventiliation.

    if I were you I'd get a pair of sandals, alternate wearing shoes and sandals, shoes primarily, sandals more casually, let your feet breathe. Also, consider getting another pair of shoes sometime, and alternate between pairs, I got 4 pairs of pumas cause there is an outlet store near me that sells 2 pairs for $60, with my tevas and my penchant for always taking off my shoes, it's all good.
     
  6. How about some sort of anti-fungal thing. Ain't that a lotta da stank?



    (I wouldn't know these things, my feet are friggin' roses :D )

    When I wear flip flops they often stink afterwards. That's usually not the case with shoes for me.

    Baby powder is a good idea. I usually apply directly to the foot. Also, whenever I take of a pair of socks, I put a new pair on, next.
     
  9. All good advice so far, but alot of people don't realize that many Americans have problems with stinky feet, while Europeans have problems with stinky meters. :p

    I think decimeter would be more proportionally correct.

    gold band medicated powder is great too.....it doesn't smell as nice as baby powder, but it works good.

    cheap leather shoes will do it for some people too.

    Ok, here's my stinky joke of the day..

    My son is a HS wrestler... He and a couple of his buddies are have been practicing, as one of them has a wrestling mat in thier basement.

    This past sunday, I was over there watching, & HackJr just doesn't look right. He's not working like normal, he looks slow, tentative, & generally like he doesn't feel well.. So, I asked him, "You feel ok?"

    He says, "I'm about to **** myself w/ some serious diarrhea!"
    So, I told him,, "well,, don't try to be tough... Go take care of it!!!"

    Well, he ignores me & gets in a scrap, in which he winds up on his back, & next thing you know,, he's like smackin the other kid on the back, saying, "Lemme up, Lemme up, Lemme up!"

    Luckily, the kid got off, just in time,, as HackJr took off like a rocket up stairs. I guess you had to be there.

    Oh about the Sandals thing: I live in Pennsylvania. :D


    The baby powder is doin' pretty good. I also threw out the zero ventilation shoes. I'm on my way to being less stinky.


    Y'know, my python boot is too tight
    I couldn't get it off last night
    A week went by, an' now it's July
    I finally got it off
    An' my girl-friend cry
    "You got STINK FOOT!

    Food for thought, in case you didn't know.

    Whereas sound and light travel through waves, scents travel through particles. That means that when you smell your stinky feet, tiny particles of skin, old socks, old shoes, fungus, sweat, and germs travel through the air and reach your nose.

    Sure makes you look at farting in a different way.
