Russian scientist Vladimir Rudenov claims that he has developed a cure for smelly feet which involves the weaving of silver nano-fibers into socks.

According to Rudenov:

“I used to be a physician. It’s a well-known fact that silver kills most bacteria, and it’s the bacteria that causes smelly feet. So I thought, why not blend nano-particles of silver with socks? And it worked!”

Rudenov has sniffed out a lucrative new business via his efforts to snuff out smelly feet and athlete’s foot. These nano-enhanced socks are now sold by his company for around $10 dollars a pair.
