In brief: Scaly feet

The common causes of malodorous, dry, scaling feet is fungal infection, which may be aggravated by poorly ventilated foot wear. Your body's natural level of sweating is also a factor. Finally, your skin may be sensitive to certain materials in foot wear, like leather, tanning chemicals, or latex.
