So I just got off of my 7-3 shift, with no lunch break. I get to go to my other job at 5 (until I think 11). I just took off my shoes and my feet stink like nothing I've ever smelled before.

Anyone have any advice?

noa

Pick up Arm & Hammer Odor Eaters. Works like a charm for me.

Yep. That's what I usually do to keep the oder in control.

Perhaps not taking your shoes off would be a wise course of action?

I like your response. Plus I could get out of work altogether.

If you're gonna go that route, you might as well do it on the job and try to get some workers comp out of it.

Wash your nasty feet in between jobs and change socks and change shoes in between jobs.

Oh, and in addition to changing shoes between jobs you might need new shoes altogether.

There's stuff you can buy to spray on your shoes, socks and feet.

Or you could try taking a shower once in awhile.

I never wear the same shoes 2 days in a row. That helps - gives your shoes a chance to breath and dry. It also extends the expected life of the shoe.

Hey, I'm back!
My advice is to quit your job and work somewhere where you won't sweat

Buck

I dont sweat at my job, but hopefully, Foot Powder works.

Do you guys know if they make shoes that are specifically made for people to remain comfortable on their feet all day?

Theres a company called Shoes For Crews that sell slip resistant comfortable shoes that people can order through their companies. I've never ordered them but have heard good things from friends and coworkers.

Wear socks made of natural fibers instead of synthetics, and stay away from cheap shoes that have synthetic innards.

Yes. Any high end shoe will do, but a few you might look into that are in a variety of styles:

Born
Ecco
Mephisto
Dansko

Sierratradingpost.com usually has very good prices on high end shoes.

Edit: I should add Keen. That's what I wear right now, and I love them. I need another pair because I wear them to work, and I wear them working in the yard/remodeling all day on the weekends. Most Keens are also waterproof and have an anti-microbial insole that actually works.

Riiiiiight.

Bob Dole would almost bet that your boulder arranging, flower planting, xerascaping kickers are the only pair of shoes you own that cost less than $100.

I have illegal aliens for that stuff. And foreign kids to make my shoes.

This is a great country. I'm really grateful to whatever ancestors I had who schlepped their stuff over here from Europe.

I've always wanted a pair of Ecco's but I never seem to find them on sale. I bought a pair of Keens at Dick's a couple winters ago for $25. I wish they had more of my size. I'd have bought 4 or 5 at that price. I bought my little brother 2 pair. You can't beat $25 for a pair of Keens.

Add Merrill to the list. They're technically hiking shoes but I wear them almost everyday remodeling. I have 3 or 4 pairs.

I would love to find a deal on Keens like that. One weekend I ripped out then hung sheetrock in my Keens all weekend, and you know how nasty you get doing sheetrock. My wife was bitching at my like crazy about how dirty I'd gotten my "good" shoes. Monday morning before work, I put them under the faucet, wiped them down with a cloth, and they looked good enough that I wore them to work that day.

Oh, and as for Merrill. That's what my heavy duty backpacking boots are. I've had them since 1996 and probably put 1000 miles on them, literally. They've been resoled twice and are still going strong. Heavy as hell, but it's hard to beat full grain leather heavy-duty hiking boots.
