    Stinky Shoes - Sidi Dominators

    How do I clean my Dominator5 shoes? They reek and they aren't that old. Even after I air them out to dry they still reek once I add a little sweat to them. What can I do?

    Put them in a pillowcase and run them through the washer with a little bleach.

    Buy new shoes and look after your feet

    Here's a kayaking trick I learned with stinky wet suits. The stink can sometimes be caused by live bacteria (which makes sense, cause this is probably sweat causing the stink). If you put you shoes in the freezer for a day, it will kill the bacteria and the stink is gone. I would put them in a bag just to keep everyting else in the freezer from touching your nasty shoes.

    I have been known to just take my shoes outside with the hose, a bucket of soapy water, and a scrub brush. Then rinse em off and either put them in the shoe drying rack inside the dryer, or just outside to air out. No problems yet.

    Mine stink due to a combination of stale bayou water (have to make a crossing or two) and sweat. My legs sweat like mad and it all goes down to gather in my shoes.

    I did the ole bowling ally trick and sprayed them down with lysol and put them in the sun. It seems to have helped. I'll watch them next week.

    Thanks for all the advice.
