I don't usually wear shoes in the Jeep. Never had that problem. Sorry I couldn't help.

Looks like your rubbing your shoes on the back of the brake pedal.

Doesn't seem like much of a question for the "tech" section....

Not a common place for any kind of a oil leak.

I think it may be a completely different issue.

\/ Does this bother you? \/

Maybe your clutch master cylinder is leaking? Look up under the dash where the clutch rod goes through the firewall.

Put your head by the pedals and look around for dirt/grease/rubbing marks.
