Do you running shoes stink? Well if you answer is positive then you are not alone. Most avid runners do encounter this problem one time or another with their running shoes. As a result, here are a few measures you can take in order to remover the bad odor from your shoes and keep them fresh and fragrant.

1- First thing you need to do is to examine the shoes and sniff out the root-cause of the bad odor. This odor is usually omitted by a bacterium that lives in the shoe. If the insoles are wet and dirty, then you may need to clean and dry them in the open air. This will also grant a permanent halt to the bacterial growth.

2- Use a special product such as the Gran’s Remedy or any other product you can find in the market place. If you can’t afford one, then you could poor baking soda into the shoes, and leave it in for a couple of hours to soak up the bad smell.

3- Keep your hygiene in check. The main cause of the bad odor might not be the shoes themselves, taking good care of your hygiene by cleaning your feet thoroughly both before and after a workout can prevent the smelly odor from ever developing in the first place.
