    Excuse me, you are stomping my foot.

    He stomps on my foot intentionally and didn't notice that.
    How to telling him?

    "Excuse me, you are stomping my foot."
    Is it sound natural?

    How does one stomp on your foot intentionally and not notice it?

    Re: Excuse me, you are stomping my foot.

    If it is unintentional, I would use "step" rather than "stomp".

    Or tread on somebody's foot.
    Mind my foot!

    He trod on my foot by accident and didn't notice. I say "Excuse me, you just trod on my foot". (Hopefully, he then apologises.)
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
