She got a smelly, rotting one sole – and the boys are willing to pay the ultimate price for it.
Exotic dancer Leah Beth sells her old, smelly platform heels for a handsome profit and makes a small fortune off men who treat her worn work shoes as musty treasures – especially when they’re soiled with wads of gum and cigarette butts.
“As a stripper, I wear them for hours and eventually they stink,” Beth, 25, who makes a living shaking her moneymaker at a gentlemen’s club in Magaluf, Mallorca, Spain, told SWNS. “When I realized there were people who were actually looking for dirty, smelly shoes, I started putting them up for sale.”
“The stinkier the better,” she said happily.
Beth, a native of Britain, has been a professional dancer for the past seven years. During her time on pole, she routinely threw her high heels – which cost around $86 each – in the trash once they were past their prime. However, after spotting a demand for used pumps at virtual resale center Vinted last year, the bombshell quickly began turning its junk into cash.
“When I realized that there are people who are actually looking for dirty, smelly shoes, I started putting them up for sale,” she explained.
Within hours, Beth’s funk shoes sold out to the highest bidder in the digital space. Online, people with shoe fetishes often want to know how many times the pinup has performed in the pumps, and make her promise not to wash the pumps before they go on sale.
“It’s never crossed my mind, but now I think I’ve been dancing for seven years,” she said, “all the shoes I’ve thrown away over the years that I could have sold.”
Her stinky stilettos have made Beth more than double her original amount. Most recently, the siren raked in a whopping $183 with a few kicks.
And while she doesn’t think shoe sales will ever make her insanely rich, the vixen says it was a welcome treat to pocket a few bucks with her side hustle.
“I don’t make thousands from it, but why would I spend money on new shoes when you can get them for free and with a little more?” Beth said. “I’m doing well financially, but you can never have enough money.”
And the hottie isn’t the only one trading her body odor for big bucks.
Stephanie Matto, 31, who starred on the TLC series 90 Day Fiancé, made a whopping $5,000 a day selling jars filled with her chest sweats and farts. And in May 2023, British influencer Latiesha Jone, 22, was able to drop out of medical school and pay off her $11,000 debt thanks to money raised from the sale of her spit.
In Beth’s case, she’s formed a risky relationship with some of her high-spending clients — one of whom wanted her tattered shoes to be covered in chewing gum.
“He said he wanted to chew gum,” Beth revealed of her crazy client. “I said he had to pay an extra $46 for it and left a note when the shoes were sold that said ‘eat your dinner.'”
The guy happily showers her with money for new heels as long as she vows to leave her old shoes soaked in sweat.
“He’s like that [pleased] even with this arrangement. He thinks he got the better part of the deal,” said Beth — who has learned to quickly track down scammers who pretended to be interested in buying their used goods but just wanted to enjoy the thrill of communicating with a stripper. She is happy with ghost freaks who just shake hands with her to waste her time.
Beth’s only focus is on making money. And now that she’s dipping a toe in the water of stinky shoe sales, the siren is ready to expand her passive income streams.
“There’s scope for selling things like sneakers, socks and tights,” she said.
“Or I also get a lot of requests for pictures and videos of my feet walking around, getting them dirty — even stepping in cakes.”
And Beth says after overcoming embarrassing requests from fans, playing football for a fee was a breeze.
“Once you get over the fact that it’s kink and fetish content, it’s like walking barefoot down the beach,” Beth said.
