Socks made from corn

I wonder what happens for people with particularly smelly feet? Do the socks just disintegrate on the spot?

From the article:
The corn-based socks will cost about 20 percent more than socks now available in Japan, he said. In Japan, a pair of socks made from cotton, wool or petroleum-based fibers such as nylon or polyester costs about 300 yen.

As of right now, 300 yen is about $2.56, so the price will be about 50 cents higher that it currently is.
