12-year-old Jordan Armstrong has officially been named the kid with the smelliest shoes in the entire United States.
A child from New Mexico has now earned some serious bragging rights. 12-year-old Jordan Armstrong has officially been named the person with the smelliest shoes in the entire United States.
Jordan earned her new title at the 39th Odor-Eaters National Rotten Sneaker Contest, which was held at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! in Times Square.
According to Jordan, she has spent the past two years wearing the award winning shoes. She wore them to school, while playing sports and even to bed.
Proving they were well used, the filthy sneakers appeared held together by duct tape. Jordan reportedly said she hopes her feet cease growing so she can continue on wearing the shoes forever.
In addition to winning the contest, Jordan also landed a $2,500 cash prize. The finalists' shoes left some of the unfortunate judges gagging.
A smell expert from Brown University, Dr. Herz, who served as one of the judges detailed the criteria stating “It’s not enough that the sneakers repel me. They should make me feel faint, or wish I had a clothespin or a gas mask nearby. That’s the kind of stink that takes home the gold.”
