    Probably because we don't wear them with socks so our feat sweat against the leather or whatever synthetic material is used. Try cycling through a couple of pairs and regularly wiping them down/soaking your feet.

    Because you're gross and choose to wear your shoes without socks and yet do nothing to combat the inevitable sweat.

    Socks / tights, either way if you're going to go bare foot and not do anything about the sweat then it's bit stupid to not expect them to smell.

    if you wear bare feet in shoes then put talcum powder in them first, it works really well

    I've never had that problem. Clean the shoes or throw them away if they're old. Go get a pedi and remove dead skin from your feet.

    I don't even know why I am getting myself involved in this - given that I don't wear ballet flats! Haha.
    Anyway, I think the OP was seeking advice to deal with the sweat... Not looking to be criticised for lack to sock wearing!

    Maybe, though she did actually just ask why they smell so bad as if she didn't know why

    Maybe you've just got smelly feet, it's perfectly natural. I wear ballet flats every day to work, with thin tan tights, and even though I'm on my feet all day as I work in a bank, when I get home and kick off my shoes my feet don't smell, or my boyfriend would soon tell me!
