    Baking soda is a natural deodorizer. What about putting some baking soda in a bit of fabric (or maybe a coffee filter), tie it up, and place in the shoes? Tying up the filter/fabric will keep the soda from spilling into the shoes.

    Fabric softener sheets stuffed in them. Kitty litter in old socks stuffed in them. You can mix some baking soda with the kitty litter.

    Hi Joann. I put baking soda in my kids shoes. Then I let it sit over night and vacuum it out. I also have sprayed Lysol in them and then put them on a boot dryer. Works well.

    To begin with, why do the shoes smell? Are they plastic? Buy them shoes with fabric so the feet can breathe, it is the sweat and moisture that is causing the bad smell. You could also use antifungal powder in their socks.

    To keep his feet dry, my husband uses Gold Bond Medicated Foot Powder. He cuts it in half w/ cornstarch. Keeping feet dry goes a long way in preventing bad smells.
