Smelly shoes can be unpleasant and embarrassing. When your feet sweat, they produce moisture that becomes trapped inside your shoes where bacteria can start to smell. With the right spray, powder, or shoe deodorizer, you will be able to control the moisture, neutralize odors and keep your shoes smelling fresh.
What causes foot odor?
The primary cause is from a lack of ventilation for your feet. Each foot has 250,000 sweat glands in feet, which produces about one cup of sweat every day. The odor comes when the perspiration isn't allowed to evaporate.
Shoe deodorizers come in three different styles: sprays, powders and inserts. They all help in their own way. Sprays are the most common shoe deodorizer. They are easy to use and some sprays have different fragrances to combat the odor. The most inexpensive way to deodorize shoes is with powders. Just like sprays, they are offered in both scented and unscented varieties. However, with powders, there is a risk of causing discoloration to your shoes. They do not dissolve as well as the spray and can potentially transfer to your socks and floors. Shoe inserts work well for people who have never-ending issues with foot odor, they remain in your shoes while wearing them. Inserts are a great option for deodorizing on the go.
The following recommendations take into account all of the considerations mentioned, including scent, longevity and convenience. At ALLY Shoes, we offer three different products that can be used in a variety of ways to help combat the odor in your shoes or even in your gym bag.
