Can you help answer this question about my 'well worn trainers' .. ahem!

Inspired by a thread on MN I listed my 'trashed trainers' and have recieved the question 'how smelly are they?'

Now bearing in mind I want to sell these trainers for as much as possible, I need a good answer, I dont think just saying 'very' will cut the mustard.

So all you frank, open minded MNers, what should I answer?

(I am a reg btw not a troll, red rug, judge flounce, cod arf etc)

So smelly they make me heave (sp?)?

They would physically put themselves in the washing machine if they could get themselves out of the box.

They absolutely stink, so bad, really hum

How about
"you can smell the overpowering scent of my hot musky toes where they have rubbed the inner" it's a cert to drive him wild (and the price up)

FluffyBunnyGoneBad Mon 11-May-09 22:22:51

A scent so overpowering Chanel simply can't match.

That is fab 4andnotout!

Does this really work? I have size 7/8 feet and could do with some cash. Shoe fetishists seem fairly harmless.

FluffyBunnyGoneBad Mon 11-May-09 22:31:51

As harmless as dirty knicker fetishes Trillian grin

EmbarrassedbyEbay Mon 11-May-09 22:32:23

I let you know how it goes Trillian

Say you often don't wear them with socks, so they are rather smelly, but not in an offensive way!

They seem to like the image of flesh against inner sole grin

What does 'scally' mean? Lots of the listings have it... but when I were a lass it meant someone from NW... m/cr to L/pool area... I'm doubting it's that!

EachPeachPearMum Mon 11-May-09 22:38:07

One seller uses this wording:
"They carry my feet ordure due to lots of ware [sic]"

TrillianAstra Mon 11-May-09 22:40:52

Ah but you can't sell dirty knickers on ebay...

I am off to research which shoes sell and which don't.

Fill us in on your findings Trillian

FigmentOfYourImagination Mon 11-May-09 22:43:13

EachPeach - There is a particular fetish, mainly in homosexual men, for young scally types in tracksuits/trainers etc.

FigmentOfYourImagination Mon 11-May-09 22:43:56

Young as in 18-25, not young young.

FigmentOfYourImagination Mon 11-May-09 22:45:19

Mainly wanking whilst wearing football shirts etc. Totally unsexy IMO but hey, whatever floats your (their) boat

FigmentOfYourImagination Mon 11-May-09 22:47:03

WRT to shoe stuff I thin kthe questioner want a description of what you have done in them to make them smelly (running on hot days, worn them all day, every day for months, worn them on the hot tube on the way to work etc etc). The sockless thing is good too.

EachPeachPearMum Mon 11-May-09 22:49:08

Ah... yes- I read young as yoofs rather than boys...

Football shirts? <shudder>

EachPeachPearMum Mon 11-May-09 22:49:47

Oh, and figment- how do you even know this stuff?

Lubyloo Mon 11-May-09 22:52:21

I've got lots of old, grotty shoes I could sell. Does it break any Ebay rules? smile

FigmentOfYourImagination Mon 11-May-09 22:55:05

LOL. I'd rather not say


PieceNharmoknee Mon 11-May-09 23:12:32

I'm finding it all rather intresting.
