Each foot contains about 250,000 sweat glands, but it’s not the sweat that smells. It’s your shoes and socks that trap odor-causing bacteria, which thrive in damp, dark environments.
The good news is that your smelly shoes could actually win you some cash! Each year, Odoreaters, a company that makes odor-neutralizing shoe insoles, holds a National Rotten Sneaker Contest, where contestants are judged not only on the condition of their kicks, but their smell.
The 2011 winner was a nine year-old from Sterling, Utah, who took home $2500 for having the foulest footwear.

Dr. Stuart was in Las Vegas recently at the 75th Annual conference, sponsored by the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons. He commented, "It was exciting to learn about new technologies and techniques for surgery; specifically, cartiva, a procedure for repairing the joint in the big toe. This was far more interesting than my losses at the blackjack table." Dr. Parodi and her 2 daughters attended the Girls and Science exhibit at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. She said, "My favorite part was making robot buttons, and watching my daughter, Rennah, dissect a teddy bear."
