The smell is probably related to the sweating, where your shoe absorbs the sweat and the sweat rots in the lining of the shoe and it is the shoe that smells, this smel will then get onto your foot. You need to see a podiatrist for advice and treatment
To get referred to a podiatrist please call the SA Podiatry assn 0861 100 249
