    There's a quick and dirty method of treating athlete's foot that works better than any creme or lotion and costs noting.. You're maybe gonna laugh and not take me seriously, but this is a remedy that's well known amongst soldiers and ballet dancers. Madonna once boasted she used it.

    When you take a shower, pee on your feet.

    In bad cases, wedge your toes apart with somthing so the pee gets to the part that's infected. Do it every day for a week at the start, and then once a week or so to stop the fungus coming back.

    I know it sounds crazy, but I also know that it works better than any lotion you can buy.

    what i find that works really well is soaking your feet in rubbing alcohol (diluted down a bit 3 parts alcohol 1 part warm water)
    i usually put it in a clean plastic bag that doesn't have holes and soak my feet in them by tying off the top around my ankles. Soak 3-5 minutes a night, for a week or so, and you'll find that your feet won't smell any more.
    washing your feet periodically with antiseptic soap is workable too.

    it gets smelly when you sweat because bacterias are there and the longer you play the more you will sweat.

    try getting a lycra socks that repels sweat fast n you get blisters when you make alot of movements at the court it works!

    If there are no sores or wounds on your feet, you can try applying deodorant or anti persirperants (sorry for spelling) onto it, buy a new stick of deodorant and apply it to your feet

    If it gets really bad, e.g. after a tournament, I spray the shoes with regular Body-Deodorant. They even smell nice after this threatment. XD

    My shoedealer told me not to wash sports shoes, btw. It will hurt them.

    A good alternative to these zedera insoles are bamboo socks, they have antibacterial properties, too. And are much more enviromental-friendly than cotton. Just try a simple google search to get them.

    lol this is one of the funniest posts. i practically laughed while looking through the INJURIES section of the forum. is smelly foot an injury...? hmm maybe not, but anyways it belongs nowhere but here, so i guess its fair to post it here.
    anyways, i had really stinky foot like 8 years ago, and i realized there are some factors that aggravate this problem.
    1. if you dont wear socks, its going to stink
    2. if its an old shoe, most probably it will stink
    3. if you have an athletes foot it will stink
    4. if you sweat a lot from your foot, it will stink
    there are a lot of other factors that makes the shoe smell, but these are some of the major factors that caused my shoe to smell.
    to treat athletes foot, i realized this ointment called LAMISIL really helps. I had athletes foot for years, and nothing seemed to work. But after i applied LAMISIL consistently for a month, it disappreared forever. So i guess LAMISIL kills the root cause of the problem, not just the problem itself.
    For sweaty foot, theres nothing better than wearing socks, and changing it frequently.
    i hope this helps.

    Lamisil (terbinafine) is one of several anti-fungal medications. One could argue that it is "stronger" than some of the other products but it doesn't work any differently.
    The root of problem isn't the fungus, of course, but the fungus-friendly environment of a sweaty foot/shoe. All your advice is bang-on!

    That's because you're from HK, where HK feet is rife...

    But seriously, lamisil is only if you have fungal infx of your feet, signified by an itchy peeling rash especially between the toes.

    For regular smelly feet, it's the sweat that causes bacterial overgrowth that causes the stink. As others have said, soak with rubbing alcohol solution to kill bacteria, or apply aluminum tetracholorohydrate antiperspirant on the feet nightly. No need to spend $30CAD for lamisil...

    Smelly feet caused your shoes to smell. The way to solve this problem is very simple. When you take a shower just applying soap and rinse is not enough to clean your feet. You have to soap and scrub them down thoroughly with a wet cloth or a brush. Be sure to scrub top and bottom and between toes. You should spend a couple of minutes on each foot. Do this every day when you shower and you'll notice that your feet and your shoes will not smell any more. No need to spend money on spray, powder, or insoles. Speaking from experience

    Has anyone tried Gold Bond medicated powder or a similar product by Dr. Scholl's? On the packaging, they claim to have anti-bacterial properties (one of them has menthol or something in it) and able to remove foot odour?

    ok...since this thread just kinda 'pop' up..

    i HAD this problem too.. just that it's on the more extreme side... my foot ( soles and around all toes ) will just 'leak'..yes..even if i'm just sitting doing nothing.

    and the smell ?? just imagine if my dog would not come near me ?? it'll come back in about 3 to 5 minutes after a warm lemon/salt soak and all the jazz..

    my socks are all wet ,i mean like after a game,and since i have to put on shoes all day long,my soles are all whitish and 'pock-mark'... can't walk the next day when i wakes up..just too painful cos my skin peeled off the nite before !!!

    tried all under the sun, even tried under the moon.. - joking about the moon.

    until finally found this.. not sure if it's available in your country..

    Brand - Dr. Mist..

    Spray type - colorless,odorless..

    and works magic.. my problem solved..

    To Grotius, I don't know if it really works. But a guy from radio television hk had said that before.

    To drifit, I've tried both kinda socks! And I have to agree with cheung! Pure cotton socks are far more better that those with nylon!

    Thank you for the suggestion, I change my shoes every 6 weeks to new shoes and socks are treated anti-microbially each wash (fresh socks every time I play)
    It seems that some people(generally guys) have a higher body temperature and perspire much more than others. This can produce problems of course if left untreated!
