    Step into a men's room and use the water and paper towels to clean it up.  It's about the only thing you can do and if it smells, mention it in the interview so they don't think you haven't bathed or something.

    Ask the receptionist at the interview spot for directions to a bathroom where you can clean up.

    Stop at Payless, KMart, heck even Walgreens and purchase whatever you can afford. Put the old shoes in a bag and leave it in the trash. Even being a few minutes late with a decent explanation and new shoes will give you an edge over the unclean pair worn anyway.
    Employers are human and will be more impressed at your ability to overcome that obvious disaster in the making than if you just bully your way through the door smelling like poo, just my advice.

    Wet paper towels from restroom, and wipe  shoes until they are clean. Dry with dry paper towels. Get cologne from purse or borrow some, and spray a little on the shoes to camouflage the smell that may linger. Then walk into interview with head held high as you are a survivor.

    Ah...clever question! Because if you go to wash it off you'll miss the "I'm eager and five minutes early" advantage. But you don't want to smell like dog poop either!

    If you just found out that you'd stepped in the poop in the building...what I would do is make a joke about it being good luck and smile about it so that the HR personnel can see you can laugh about yourself. And then, ask politely if you can excuse yourself to go outside of the building to wipe it off then wash your hands.

    I'd tell whoever is the receptionist the truth and I'd be innovative in my solution to solve the problem and tell my future employer about my ability to handle pressure. I'd use the story of having to rush into a bathroom, reach under the sink and sprinkle Comet on my shoe to avoid stinking up the office. Then I'd say I appreciate them understanding if my shoe still did stink. I'd feel good about myself whether I got the job or not.
