Hi! They make bamboo charcoal bags that are shoe size. Lay one on top of your sandal overnight. The brand I have used is Miso, but, there are many different brands. About once a month you refresh the bags with sunshine. They are guaranteed to last 2 years, but, my bags have worked longer than that.
Good luck and stay safe!
Thank you Cynthia for taking the time to help me.

Hi Corrine, hope this helps you out, works on all shoes.
I just found some charcoal shoe pockets that I put into my son's cross country shoes after he runs and it helps to dry them out and deodorize them. I found them at Target in the sports area (running stuff).
I use baking soda
Lots of tips here:
Try this Sprinkle a layer of baking soda on the foot bed and allow the sandals to sit for 8 - 24 hours. You can try strengthening the odor-neutralizing effect by tying the sandals in plastic bag after coating them with baking soda.
If not washable then use something like a Fabric freshener or maybe Shake & Vac or even Tea Bags.
