Today, I was in class and I smelled what I thought was month-old trash coming from a student in front of me. I politely ignored the smell, only to realize a few hours later that the persistent smell wasn't coming from every student in my university, but was from my shoes. FML

The way he stated it made me think it took around 10ish people or more to realize that's what popped into my mind. In my comment I meant I though he would realize after the first two or three people. So while you are correct he did do that I assumed he took longer than he should have to realize it.

When I was in middle school, there was a girl who always wore flip flops everyday, the standard foamy kind. Rain or shine. Needless to say, her feet began smelling like ass, from I guess all the moisture and grit. A group of us politely took her to the side and told her- incase she had gotten used to the smell or something and was unaware. We got in trouble for 'picking on her'.

I've been there - walking through a puddle can be a quick way to leave your shoes stinking to high heaven (depending on the material). It's embarrassing but just get a new pair of shoes and you'll be fine tomorrow

My feet/shoes used to smell a lot as a kid. Instead of buying new shoes all the time, my mom bought this special powder that you sprinkle into the shoes and gets rid of the smell. Every day i would come home and sprinkle the stuff in my shoes and it made my shoes (and feet) stop smelling. I think you can get this sort of product at the drug store op. You could also try washing your shoes in the washing machine if all else fails.

Usually if you wear shoes without socks your feet and shoes really stink. I found this out myself on a long hiking trip without socks. Usually I hike with socks and never get stank like that lol

I have a similar problem with my work shoes, run them through a washing machine if they'll survive it, febreeze them and put tea bags in them when you're not wearing then
