My truck is ruining my shoes!

There is something coming from the brake and gas pedal area that is ruining my shoes. I have found that all of my shoes have a black splotch on the right toe. After driving in my flip-flops, I find some of it on my bare toe. That part of my foot is not rubbing against the pedals. I hate buying new shoes now because I know they'll soon be ruined. Anyone out there have any ideas what could be causing this?

Brake fluid leak...is my guess.

You live in Florida? There are a couple good shops that my family has come across since the 20's, some are still open, most are not. Depends on your area.
