I can count on my feet, shoes & socks stinking up my house from August through November. Kinda reminds me of garlic in many ways.
It never fails, this time of the year my feet go on a stinking rampage that will destroy the very nose hairs of our guests two days after removing my shoes.
I've been aware of this for most of my life. Luckily I stumbled across Goldbond a few years back. I've been able to control it consistently...but damn what a hassle! I wish buying new shoes, socks, Dr. Scolls insole, foot baths..etc.. could control this....it can't though, I've tried.
I know I'm not the only buyer of Goldbond in the U.S. because I went to buy some today and the shelf was empty (my poor wife). It got me wondering though, Are there any other stinky feet sufferers out there? If so, what do you do?
I'm also interested in the opinions of those that lived/survived with a stinky foot partner/friend/roomate.
If anything else you just learned that TheGuinness. has stinky feet for 1/4 of the year! Thanks for the read.

My feet can smell bad, not anything close to yours by the sound of it. My brother, however, would give you a run all year round. I live with him. His feet REEK. If he takes his work boots off, I'd much rather be in another room. If he leaves them in the room, its terrible.
In a word; yes. Very yes. After I wear shoes for longer than five minutes it gets pretty bad when I take off said shoes. My socks generally have been deemed a bio-hazzard and my shoes are just as bad. There's a couple guys I know who fart on command...all I need to do is take off the shoes and I too can clear an area.
Yes, I finally have updated the Troll Moment of the Week! This week is brought to you by ;

Wait, no he isn't. He's serious. I hadn't read his previous brilliance before. I apologize" (in reference to a reply by James1978).
I've never had any complaints after taking off shoes and socks, though people might just be polite.
One thing that I do have to take care of is my pair of birkenstock sandals. That leather that my feet rest on top of gets pretty rank in the summertime. I wash them off once every couple weeks with an old sponge and my homemade dish soap. It probably doesn't help that I only get new ones every 4-5 years.

I wear steel toed boots pretty much everyday, so yeah. I combat it by buying LOTS of baby powder. Seems to do the trick.
I've seen TWELVE movies so far this year: Because I Said So - (2*); Borat - (5*); Children Of Men - (4*); Die Hard 4 - (5*); Fantastic Four 2 - (4.5*); Harry Potter 5 - (4*); Knocked Up - (4*); The Last Mimsy - (4*); Mr. Brooks - (4*); Shrek The Third - (3*); Spiderman 3 - (3.5*); Transformers - (2*)
Yeah, my feet tend to be pretty bad. My wife has a horrible nickname for it, which I won't repeat here as it's utterly embarassing. I'm not sure what it is that makes it happen. I utterly destroy most pairs of socks after just a couple of uses and end up having to buy new ones. Cheap socks is the main reason I ever patronize Wal-Mart, really.

Originally posted by DJ FrostyFreezeMy feet used to stink pretty bad when I was a teenager & into my early 20's, but not anymore. I'm not sure what happened.
Your senses dull with age.
It might also have to do with the fact that you might wear a totally different kind of shoe, or a shoe made of more natural materials that lets your feet breathe a bit more.
I know I'm not wearing the same kind of shoes I wore in high school. I think I wore one pair of brown leather boots for 3 out of the 4 years. In hindsight those couldn't have smelled very good. I never really took them off except to sleep or bathe.
I don't have that problem too much anymore. It also helps that I am not wearing black heavy socks with combat boots in the Mojave desert anymore (I was in the USAF). God, I wanted to cut my feet off at the ankles they were so bad.
My new steel toed boots suck ass now. I need to put in new liners on a weekly basis, so it seems.
In a word, they reek.

Next question: How did your family handle stockings? Mine started out with just candy in stockings, but eventually morphed into small things like Pez Dispensers. I've occassionally even gotten small wrapped presents.
