Dear Sunny
It is caused by bacteria - get an antibacterial spray to use in your shoes and put them in the sun. Wear cotton socks, wash your feet with antibacterial soap ( especially inbetween the toes). You can also try putting eryderm or a similar topical antibiotic lotion on your feet and use a anti-perspirant on them before putting on your shoes. If you wear sneakers etc a lot and they can be washed - wash them with hot water with a bit of Dettol in it.
