Avoid embarrassing and uncomfortable situations by removing the smell from your shoes and sandals once and for all with GEAR AID.

What Causes Smelly Shoes? 

Most instances of odorous feet are the result of moisture being trapped where it can’t evaporate effectively. This gives bacteria the chance to feed on the sweat, which in turn produces a smelly isovaleric acid. This moisture-filled environment is also the perfect condition for the development of the fungus that causes athlete's foot. Even those wearing the best work boots are not immune to this problem.


Odor sufferers who wish to use a spray or powder to control their foot odor and wetness may be interested in one of the following solutions.
