I get that "Mes pieds sentent bon" means "My feet smell good." So how would one say "My feet feel good"?
Would it be "Mes pieds se sentent bien" ? I got confused because the subject is "mes pieds" not me. (?)
You could write "mes pieds se sentent bien" (ONLY grammatically correct) and it doesn't make much sense in French, unless you were to consider your feet as having a personality ;-) Plus, 'se sentir' is verb of state, so it implies a state of being (which is rather unusual for feet, I would say! ;-) )
I hope this is helpful.
Bonne journée !
I agree with you that "Mes pieds se sentent bien" would mean that "My feet feel good"
Why? Se sentir is pronominal with "se" in accord with the subject "Mes pieds".
Hope this helps.
I don't think the sentence "My feet feel good" is suitable to be rendered like this in French.
