Just be honest and upfront with him about your feelings.  It may make things awkward but hopefully he is a good enough friend to respect your feelings.

I know it’s hard.

Oh that sounds like a difficult situation.  What is the significance of him seeing your feet?

How have you dealt with his advances in the past?  Maybe you need to be more firm.  Have you told him directly that you are not interested in him in that way?

Just keep being clear about it. One of my best friends was like this with me for almost five years. Even when I had a boyfriend he would creep! He was too good of a friend to ditch, and somehow it all worked it’s way out of his system (years later, lol). I mean, if you really can’t handle it, just stop seeing him except for maybe on special occasions. Good luck!

If you have been firm with him on numerous occasions and he continues in this behaviour which you have made clear is unwelcome, perhaps the time has come to limit contact.

It’s not unreasonable to end the friendship at this point. It’s a tough decision though. The thing is you will never know if he’s being your friend as a true friend or if he is just waiting for you to see how awesome he is. 

I think you can still be friends if he accepts you do not want more.  But it’s also not unreasonable to end the friendship. You can also limit contact and see how you feel in a week or a month.
