Dear Manish, Welcome
Foot smell may be due to a number of causes like hyperhidrosis, fungal infections etc. Do as follows:
1) Clean feet daily during bath & dry properly
2) Daily change socks, use cotton socks only
3) Use an antifungal powder like absorb powder.
Good Luck.

Dermatologist Dr. Resham J. Vasani (Bhojani)'s  Response
in addition to the clear and lucid instructions given by Dr.Naveen, avoiding substances like garlic and onions in your diet would also help u.also do consult a dermatologist ,since excessive sweating of the feet may predispose u to develop fungal infections which can be left untreated.
