so i have these one shoes

that make my feet smell pretty bad. (really bad.)

they're cozy. i don't want to throw 'em away. but i
also don't want to be the smelly girl in class. (or
not in class.) and sometimes during the day i feel
like i want to take my shoes off. no can do.
that's no longer an option.

i'm thinking i want to give them a bath (in the washer).

can i do that?

shoes/bare feet=stinky feet.

Go for it. Give them the dunk. What is there to lose because you probably won't wear them much more if they are really stinky anyway.
I have some expensive,in my book, sandal/shoes that were getting the stink. I emailed the company that makes them and they said to wash them with an antibacterial soap, like Dial. I did that. I won't say it was a total cure, but I think it helped. So maybe before you throw them in the washer you could try some kind of antibacterial spray on them.
Good luck. "Stink Shoe" is the worst!

geri! i found you! so, i wash running shoes in the washer all the time - with bleach - (and dry them in dryer) i have done several different pairs and have not had a problem, not even bleached color - never tried regular shoes though - try it - maybe without bleach though.

To prevent the stink you aren't supposed to wear the same pair of shoes two days in a row, and not close your closet door so they can air out. But for shoes that are already stinky, maybe put baking soda in them??

i have no good advice for this post. sorry. cute shoes though. ben and i were at a bed and breakfast in salmon last fall and my shoes smelled really bad so we threw them in the trunk and went and bought a pair at a grocery store. they didn't have very many options.
i would try to wash them!
