I wear an ultrathin silver liner sock from REI. Silver is a natural odor inhibitor and is woven into the threads. This works best though if you start with a new pair of shoes and never let them get funky. I'm on my second set of soles with funk free TC Pro's.

spray apple cider mixed with vinegar and that should do the trick!

Woolite + stiff toothbrush in the shower, toss em in the yard to dry in the sun or blast em dry with a hair dryer. This has worked for 4 iterations of anasazis, evolv prime slippers, evolv evos, shamans, lace up muiras, solutions, a pair of galileos, a pair of dragons, a pair of scarpa vapors, some madrock slippers and a pair of blackwings.

if you have legendary foot funk - do they smell like a brooklyn garbage can in august? Can you smell them from 5 feet away?- many of these remedies might not work. As noted, odor comes from bacteria and their waste products. Keep your feet washed first. No matter how many days I go in the field for our beloved army, I baby wipe my feet every day. sometimes twice. Allow all of your shoes to air dry, every day, so you dont cross contaminate. use cornstarch foot powder.

last ditch effort, start ingesting a probiotic. yogurt, kombucha, kefir, whatever. No joke. probiotics are credited for all kinds of remedies. good luck. Im glad I dont climb with you;0

This thread is 5 years old, BTW..

Foot powder, applied liberally after every session, has kept my shoes to a mild funk- more like a burnt popcorn smell than foot or dead animal. Totally acceptable, next to the putrescence radiating from other guys' shit.

The shoes I am using now are the Evolv Defys.


Defys were my first pair of shoes, and once they started stinking (a couple months) it was a downhill battle. I tried everything, but the stink always came back worse than before. My final solution was throwing them in the garbage and buying different shoes. That did the trick.
