  • They used to smell but I bought her that foot cream called Treat Your Feet Cream by Shearwater Falls... Miracle!!! We put some on her feet every day before she puts on her shoes and no smell!

  • My 11 year old and my 7 year old have a sort of unpleasant scent to them. But they are very active and athletic so I guess it's the activity and the hormones that make them smell funny. Plus they are boys. Boys have smelly feet sometimes!

  • Only when he was in the hot sun wearing socks .. or socks and shoes.. If they sweat they stink. Otherwise no.

  • Yep, Lol! They get it from my side of the family.
    Ever since my son was a baby he's had sweaty feet and they smell. Not terribly but really it's only a matter of time.
    Mine were horrible when I was a kid, now they're better.
    Now my 4 month old daughter is starting to get little sweaty feet too. Poor kid. Lol.

  • best to wear cotton socks, change them evry day. And have 2 main pairs of shoes so they can rotate their shoes to every other day. man made leateher and uppers will cause stink too

  • Yup, and he's only 15 mos old! LOL! They've always had a little bit of foot odor to them, even after a thorough bath. He comes by it natural, his daddy's feet ate socks for breakfast, LOL!

  • yup. even with socks. I now only buy airators and use foot deoderant (his dad and my bro. had the same issues)
    mind you stinky feet from when a baby... so its not just what they wear.... some people just have stinky feet
