s/o stinky feet

I took my shoes off in my cubicle and a little while later I realized that that funky smell was coming from my feet.  Nooooo!  Apparently these are stink-inducing shoes.

Any tips for reducing the funk in closed toe work heels?

Re: s/o stinky feet

  • I've started wearing knee high nylons. They're pretty comfortable and rather cheap. I think I got a big pack somewhere odd like Kroger. They keep my feet fairly warm, and they look better than wearing socks.

    With shoes with fabric soles, I've spritzed with Febreeze.

     Hope that helps!

    I can't stand nylons - even knee-highs.  Plus I live in the south where it's crazy warm already.  I do have them for presentations and things, but bleh.

    Fabric softener sheet - do you wipe your shoes and feet with it, or cut it up and wear it inside your shoe?

    Store the shoes overnight with the fabric softener sheet in them.  Hopefully it will help! I hate nylons, too.  They actually make my feet more stinky.

    I'll try that.  Well, I"ll try it after I go to the store and get some fabric softener sheets.

    I just had to throw in I know how you feel about it being crazy warm. It went from coat and scarf weather over the weekend to flip flops and short sleeves today just about. Gotta love the south

  • You can soak your feet in black tea too.  Its supposed to help kill the bacteria that cause foot odor.  I heard it on Oprah from Dr. Oz many many moons ago...lol

  • Great tips ladies! This pregnancy is definetely causing me to have seriously stinky feet! I have never had this problem before and didn't experience it with DS. Oh well, it's only been a problem in the last week or so and I only have 8 weeks left! Stinky feet pretty much sums up my pregnancy complaints so I should just be happy I don't have sciatica this time around and no swelling despite the 100+ degree temps in Chicago this summer :)
