MONTPELIER, Vt. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Residents of Montpelier, Vermont, should be stocking up on air freshener and nose-plugs, because five pairs of the world’s stinkiest sneakers will be bouncing into the town next Thursday (Mar. 19).

The smelly shoes belong to five children who are finalists in the 1998 Odor Eaters International Rotten Sneaker Contest.

One of the finalists is 13-year-old Kristin Lindquist of Rowley, Massachusetts, who says she stunk up her size 7 1/2 Reeboks by tromping through a filthy, slushy swamp near her house.

Now, she claims the funky footwear smells like “moldy feet” and says the odor is so strong you can’t be in the same room without noticing it.

The winner of the stinky sneaker contest will receive a $500 savings bond, a years’ supply of Odor Eaters and their pungent pair of sneakers will be enshrined in the Odor Eaters Hall of Fumes.

CONTACT: Kristin Lindquist, Arrange thru Julie Bohl or Kristin Mascoli; White Plains, NY; 1-800-***-****, ext. 4360 or (914) ***-****
