Near the end of this last March, Mayday981 posted a similar query in the Body Consciousness area of the Men’s Style section of SF.http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=12730

Whether the odor is from your feet, shoes, or a combination thereof . . . a solution of sorts was posted here in the weeks leading up to the Great Server Crash early this year.
One of SF's shoe-focused members (who shall remain anonymous) shared the results of an ongoing experiment in shoe bleaching with other SF members in a multi-post thread. A dilute bleach solution that, as a side-effect to getting rid of the "hideous" original John Lobb color, also removed the pesky aroma of fine leather from some John Lobb shoes. This might just do the same for not only your prandially permeated pumps, but your funky feet as well. In fact, to save some time, you might consider just dunking the whole fettid combination into a bucket of the six percent solution. Why bother even removing your shoes?
Clearly, the answer was awaiting you here until the aforementioned server crash! Your feet, your family, society in general, and the Mayday's restaurant diners will be forever grateful to Style Forum.
