I ran across this site when doing a search on when to replace my running shoes b/c the soles are wearing out but the support still seems fine.... The google search was "asics shoes: when to replace?"

And this is the site that came up first in the google search Don't worry, it's only pics of feet in shoes....no nudity or anything like that at all

http://www.runningtradein.com/runnin...allery_kat.htm


I had no clue, at first I was like, what the hell? Running trade in? Why TRADE in your shoes if they are worn & Why is this girl selling her running shoes, and making comments on how SMELLY They are?

I start poking around the site to see what the heck it was about....and then b/c the intro page says this

"welcome

You are here because you have been invited, or have received my business card. Please have a look at the about page to understand how my site can be of service to you."
I was like..........uhhhhhhhhhh neither, google brought me here.

Some interesting Q&A from "models"

Quote:
Q. Who the hell wants to buy my old running shoes?

A. There are several people with this passion for womens running shoes, and it is very hard for them to find quality used running shoes anonymously. Most often the shoes that are found on eBay do not have all the features that these people look for. I have had both men and women purchase models worn out shoes as well.



Q. What does the buyer do with my running shoes?

A. I dont know, they most definitely have their own reasons.



Q. What do I have to do to trade my running shoes for new ones?

A. The most important thing that you have to do, is to wear your running shoes without socks. You have to wear them sockless casually, at home, at the gym, for jogging or any sport you may practice. Of course, you have to meet up with me for the photo shoot once in a while, and to sell your old shoes and obtain your new ones, but thats stating the obvious.



Q. Why do I have to wear my running shoes without socks?

A. Its quite simple when you think of the results that will produce after several months. The customers are looking for worn out shoes with very special features like faded interior materials, deep foot imprints on the insoles and of course a very strong smell. Thats what they are shopping for, and thats what I am offering them. If you think your running shoes stink enough even while you're wearing socks, then just imagine how bad it would be without. You might just become my next ACE seller.



Q. I dont mind going sockless, but it makes me uncomfortable to have feet and shoes that smell this much. How do I work around this?

A. You must realize one thing. People expect feet and running shoes to smell, and they usually keep their distance. People who will comment on how bad your shoes smell probably would whether you wore them sockless or not. The best thing to do is to always store your running shoes upside down as soon as you take them off. This keeps the smell inside them, and helps a lot in containing the odor. Do not ever use any odor neutralizing powders or sprays of course, as this completely defeats the initial purpose. Keeping a plastic bag handy in your closet and always stowing your running shoes in them is also a valid option. Again, anybody sticking their nose close to your feet after you've taken off your running shoes would definitely expect what they would get. No surprise there.
And you have loads of different models to choose from link



Don't get me wrong, hey, people have fetishes, that's OK by me....but I had no clue that there was a MARKET for USED SMELLY RUNNING SHOES JUst struck me as funny!!!!

*disclaimer: this is not intended to offend any ppl w/ this particular fetish

so you won't get top dollar, you should do it to see how much you get. I wear socks to, and I don't even run, and my shoes smell a little.

Ok I understand most fetishes. I even understand foot fetishes, my wife gets a pedicure whether she wants one or not ;). However smelling dirty running shoes? That is very odd and rather disgusting.

The smell is from bacteria. For those of us who would just as soon have NON smelly shoes, I read that if you stuff them with some toilet paper and then spray Lysol on the paper, this will kill the bacteria.
