take warm water and put tea bags in it (any kind) and soak your feet in it. Something in the tea takes out the bacteria that is causing the stink.

soaking your feet in tea or vinegar water helps... but so does helping the shoes to dry out and smell better to help the feet do so too.

I was told to use coffee grounds tied into the foot of a nylon stocking... put into shoe overnight or maybe an extra day..

also, rotate shoes... give them time to completely dry... plus wash feet often, even if you don't bathe, give feet a bath. Tea works, and so does mint... mint tea is even better. Mint tea is cooling to the feet, too.

I know this sounds weird, but make green tea, and dump it into a foot bucket soaking your feet in it for 15 minutes. Do that once a week for a while, and it will go away.

Baking soda: foot soaks, warm water w/ the soda. With shoes that can be  washed you can add a little to the water and also a little to the water when you are washing the socks. Keeping feet from perspiring is important. Well ventilated footware and socks without polyester or spandex  is important if this is a problem.

The tea bags work  and so does the foot/baby powder, changing socks and /or shoes 2x daily.  Also try washing the shoes, changing to odoreater sole inserts, Washing the feet in morning and at night and letting them air dry, spraying a peppermint oil  type of foot/body mist on the feet and last but not least putting clean dryer sheets in side the shoes when they are not being worn.  That absorbs moisture and leaves behind and nice scent.

This works!  Put warm water in a large enough bowl for the feet to be fully covered and mix in about 1/2 cup of mouth wash.  You only have to do this maybe once every 4-6 months.

Gold's Bond foot powder worked wonders for Matthew. Also, don't let him wear tennis shoes without socks.

baby powder in the shoes.. my uncle had a foot odor problem and he used to use baby powder in his shoes every night... or you can use corn starch.
