Stinky shoes, stinky shoes where have you been? I have been running all day and working out with the queen.

Our shoes often tend to smell after we have a few intensive work out sessions or jogs, don’t they?

It is a typical thing for your shoes to stink if you are an athlete or a gymnast. While work shoes might not smell too often, your gym shoes can get hold of odour quickly. For a fact, each foot contains a whopping 250,000 sweat glands which mix with bacteria and cause bad odour.

Unlike our face and arms, our feet are covered in shoes all day due to which they do not get ventilation, this leads to sweating and breeding of bacteria – very smelly bacteria. Hence, if you’re battling stinky shoes, don’t be embarrassed.

After all, who better than our shoes know about all our struggles that we go through each day? And it would be mean of us to throw them away or leave them to stink. So, here are a few easy hacks you can use to get rid of smelly shoes.

1. Rubbing Alcohol

This is a very easy method which requires zero efforts. All you need to do is rub a little alcohol mixed with water, in and on your shoes and you are good to go. If you think your shoes are extra smelly than you can soak them in the solution for a night.

2. Baking Soda

A teaspoon of this powder can help you get rid of the stench in your shoes in one go. Surprised? Go try it yourself. Add some baking soda, dish soap, hydrogen peroxide and scrub your shoes for a while. This will easily remove the bad odour from your shoes.

3. Toothpaste

Paste not only helps your teeth to be flossy and white but also helps in removing the stink from your smelly shoes. You can use an old toothbrush to clean and scrub your shoes from within.

4. Change your Insoles

We at Sole Head provide rough-n-tough insoles that are durable and go on for a long time. But once they are worn out it is suggested to change them since they might be one of the reasons for your smelly shoes and feet. Make it a habit to change your insoles once they are too old as they might cause less comfort in walking and will help you keep your feet happy.

5. Always Wear Socks

This is the best way you can ensure that your feet are happy and safe. Wearing socks will avoid your feet from getting soaked in sweat and rubbing against the insides of your shoes. However, you might succeed in keeping away the stink from your shoes but you must wash your socks because that’s where all the stink has gotten into.

And tadaaa, here you go with your fresh and aromatic shoes just like they were new. Wear them now and don’t forget to enjoy the happy smell. But in case your shoes have no hope of improvement then all you have to do is click here and buy a new pair now.
