Most of us have known someone who has smelly feet, or perhaps you have cleared out a room with your own stinky tootsies. Your hoofs, piggies, or whatever you like to call them, get a real workout. You stand with them, walk and run, so they are bound to get sweaty and in some cases stinky. Up to 15 percent of the population has really bad foot odor.

Why feet can smell
Each foot has 26 bones, 33 joints, 19 muscles and 107 ligaments, but a pair of feet also has 250,000 sweat glands. These glands can make up to one cup of sweat every day. Our feet produce more sweat per square inch of skin than any other part of our body.
