Does he pee on his paws? Is there anything around your home he could step in that is smelly?

Lisl's paws smell like Frito's. Really.

Deja's smell herbal/earthy, kinda nice. Never had a dog with smelly feet. Something must be going on with yours.
Maybe wash them and keep an eye on him,where he goes etc.

Does the dog chew on them? Are they wet frequently? You could rub coconut oil into them. Will help rid them of the bacteria that is causing the smell.

He doesn't pee on his paws or step on anything that would make it smell like that! Sometimes he licks his paws but I don't think that's the reason why it smells. It really does smell like stinky feet! I'll have to try the coconut oil thanks

It is probably yeast.

Here is something you can try, but I would also look into changing the food.

Aha.

Could be the chicken. Try a food with another protein, such as fish. And do give him an iodine soak, it will make him feel better and will immediately reduce the smell.

Might sound stupid but where can I find iodine?
