Now see, I'd have to tell a roommate to check himself. First is to make sure he buys at least two more pair of shoes. He should wear a pair one day while the other airs out. He needs to use a good foot spray. No proper man should have stinky feet, what would a young lady think if he gets lucky that day and takes off his shoes? And while he's off buying for quality leather shoes, he should pick up a nice respectable hat.

Its likely to be a fungal foot infection and its SERIOUS. Its not about hygene. Hygene helps but its not the real culprit. Baking soda will work but not in tiny amounts and not straight away. Stick with the baking soda but try more serious foot fungal creams as well. Putting ALL shoes and ALL socks out in the sun for hours per week will also do wonders.

Burn him! Or maybe just his shoes and socks. Force him to buy new ones. Repeat this weekly.

I know its in jest but the real problem isn't just his feet. Its a serious fungal skin infection called Candida Albicans or just candida for short and it usually manifests itself first in the feet in men. Get him to take it seriously and treat it seriously NOW.

my friend had stinky feet.

my solution was to fabreeze his socks, while he was still wearing them.

i thought leaving shoes out in the sun make them 'sweat'

and febreeze is a bad idea - mixing a fragrance w/ a bad smell is a disaster

Um, dont leave your feet in them when you sun them. Seriously the solar radiation is about killing fungus. Pure and simple. Yes it can be hard on shoes but they are already infected with fungus and they will keep on reintroducing fungus to the feet. You need to treat your feet and shoes and socks at the same time. Replacing all socks and shoes would be a good idea but you will re-infect them for a while. Candida Albicans is a serous infection which some say is the root cause of cancer.

Or you could just spray both the feet and the shoes with a miconazole nitrate treatement. Kills fungus.
