Why does my cat rub her face on my shoes?

One of my kitties love to put their face in my shoes when I get home. I know about leaving sents and taking them in, but she does it to everyone. Also my cat likes to lick my boyfriends feet. She sticks her face in dirty socks, underwear, or anything that smells bad or dirty. Even a sweaty shirt or jacket. Another thing is she licks armpits.

To your kitty, those things aren't "dirty," they just have interesting smells that she likes to investigate and leave her own scent on.
