How to remove that climbing shoe stink.
Crumple up some newspaper and stuff it in your climbing shoes. The newspaper sucks up the odor really well!

I paid a lot of money for special climbing shoe stuff. . . just before I resoled. . . worked pretty well on really nasty shoes.

i usually wait for the tell-tale multi-coloured colonies of mold to have their fun before i take a scrub brush and bleach to the shoes. keeps em smelling like a clean bathroom for at least a few trips.

:confused8 I don't understand...you wanna get rid of that lovely aroma?:confused8 I think it's heaven....I say never take 'em off, wear 'em in a jjimjjilbang and if you must remove them, keep them in a hot plastic bag!:becky:
The newspaper thing, for "civilized folk" works well.

I prefer Gold Bond Medicated Foot Powder, fresh and minty!

Keep them on the outside of your bag once you take them off. I used to put mine back in side my bag once I was finished climbing, but I've found that clipping them to the outside of your bag with the tongue pulled out lets the sweat evaporate, therefore less stink. Well my theory anyway, does seem to have made a difference though.

Dr. Scholls shoe shoot works amazing even for synthetic shoes

New shoes seems to work best. You can also put them in the washing machine with some towels.

has worked for me

Put dryer sheets inem.
So I have been climbing for the last five years and part of that has been the dilema of foot odor. I love me some leather shoes. While living in Chattanooga TN I was turned on to using dryer sheets in my shoes. It works very well and is cheep.

Hope this helps.

I use both crumpled newspaper and essential oils for my shoes, plus the occasional scrub-down with an old toothbrush. Seems to be working!
