    1. A pack of Remodeez footwear deodorizers that use charcoal to remove odor and moisture from even the nastiest of shoes.

    Promising Review: "These are unbelievable! I used to be able to smell my teenage son's shoes when walking by the shoe rack, and it was simply unbearable. After slipping these in for a day, I can actually put my nose up to his shoes!" β€”aworkingmom

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $9.99.

    2. The Body Shop's peppermint foot spray to cool down your feet (and mask any smells).

    Promising Review: "This product is a holy grail item. I keep it in the fridge and use it to refresh my tired feet after a long day, especially in the summertime when my feet are more prone to swelling. This is also excellent for after the gym or to spritz my flats with to help neutralize any odors." β€”ellenare

    Get it from The Body Shop for $6.

    3. A pair of natural air-purifying bags that you can insert into your shoes to deodorize them and eliminate odor for as long as two years.

    Promising Review: "I get told by my boyfriend quite often that my leather work boots could wilt flowers. Even after one night, there was a noticeable difference. After a weekend, they were almost brand-new smelling with no artificial scents. Every night after work I come home, take off my boots, and throw these in overnight." β€”Dude495

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $9.93.

    4. A bottle of Carpe antiperspirant foot lotion to help prevent your feet from sweating in the first place.

    Promising Review: "Bought this for my boyfriend who is on his feet all day and was always complaining about how sweaty his feet got. He usually had to bring at least one extra pair of socks to change into during the day. He also had to buy shoes more often because of how they smell. It would be impossible for us to get out the smell. Since he began using this product, he can't believe how dry his feet stay ALL day. His socks don't even smell after a full day of work. He's now obsessed and it's become a part of his daily routine." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.20.

    5. A pair of ultra drying and deodorizing shoe dryers so you never have to slip your feet into a pair of moist shoes again.

    Promising Review: "Worked exceptionally well. Only used them for one night and it cleared the worst case of man funk and dried them, which usually takes a couple of days." β€”Jasmine

    Get them from Amazon for $49.95.

    6. A pair of cedarwood shoe insoles that'll absorb foot moisture so you never have to worry about stinky shoes.

    Promising Review: "I found these insoles at a time in my life when I thought there was no hope for my feet. They sweat excessively and when stuck inside a shoe for 8-12 hours a day, they produced an odor so foul it could kill a mighty warrior. I tried cleaning my shoes, bleaching them, and washing my feet several times a day, all to no avail. But, soft! What light through yonder internet window breaks?! These insoles not only completely DEVASTATED the odor in a pair of shoes I thought were beyond saving, but I swear that continued use has caused my feet to sweat less and produce less of an odor, (if any odor at all). I don't know the specifics and how much of it is solely (*smirk*) dependent on the insole, but these things work and I will be forever indebted to them for saving my feet and the noses of those around me. Amen." β€”Daniel T. Witvoet

    Get them from Amazon for $16.90 (available in a wide range of men's and women's sizes).

    7. An eight-week supply of clinical-strength antiperspirant wipes for your feet that you can take on the go.

    Promising Review: "My husband loves these wipes. At his job, he has to wear work boots and thick socks during the winter to keep his feet warm. These wipes keep his feet dry! This is the fourth time we've bought this brand of wipes and it's the only ones he will use now!" β€”Alex Garcia

    Get them from Amazon for $16.14.

    8. A travel-size shoe odor killer because the shame of having to take your shoes off in public is real when you have sweaty feet.

    Promising Review: "Kills the odors in the shoes I wear to work at an onion factory." β€”JULIE ZIEROTH

    Get it from Amazon for $5.95.

    9. A bottle of Gold Bond foot powder spray for when you really don't want to mess around.

    Promising Review: "I have dealt with sweaty feet forever. This was my first attempt at trying something to assist β€” I especially need it in the summer when I don't wear socks with my high heels. Wow! I wish someone told me about this earlier." β€”acr

    Get it from Amazon for $10.68.

    10. A bottle of antibacterial foot and shoe deodorizer that uses an essential oil mixture to destroy even the most stubborn of foot and shoe odors.

    Promising Review: "My feet sweat horribly and can get pretty rank by the end of the day. I used aerosols for years but I'll never go back to those products again after using Right Foot. It doesn't just mask the odor β€” the odor isn't there!" β€”Kevin Spudic

    Get it on Amazon for $13.49.

    11. An award-winning foot deodorant cream to get up to seven days of odor protection with just one application.

    Promising Review: "This stuff is amazing. I've struggled with stinky feet my whole life and have tried every foot soak or old wives' tale I could find. This is the first thing I've used that worked! It's so nice to not have to be embarrassed to take off my shoes. I use it once to twice a week, and the smell is gone." β€”Luckeyhat18

    Get it from Amazon for $15.78.

    12. A pack of charcoal shoe insoles for a way to naturally absorb moisture and eliminate odors.

    Promising Review: "These are great. I went for a walk with them in shoes that usually make my feet sweat like crazy and not a thing. Love them! And there's more than enough pairs to use, which is great at such a good cost πŸ‘ŒπŸ»" β€”Dayna Russo

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $12.50.

    13. An all-natural foot and shoe deodorizer designed to help athletes without the use of harsh chemicals.

    Promising Review: "I work out quite often and go hiking/tracking, so it's important to keep my shoes in their best condition. This keeps the smell away from my workout and running shoes, but also from my everyday shoes. I spray it once or twice in each shoe, once a week. The scent is fresh and I really like that the peppermint doesn't linger too much. I also appreciate that it's made with natural ingredients." β€”Ana Maria

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97.

    14. A natural spray that will have your pets totally unafraid of your feet.,

    Promising Review: "Amazing. I didn't have faith in it when I bought it. But after one use on my work boots, my feet and boots don't smell. Even my dog doesn't run away when I come home anymore! I love this spray." β€”Mike R

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    15. A pair of Dr. Scholl's cooling shoe insoles to help your feet stay dry all day.

    Promising Review: "Got these for my husband whose feet can smell up a whole room. He's a teacher and on his feet all day in a non-air-conditioned school. So when he comes home and takes off his shoes, it is brutal! These inserts have been life-changing for the whole family." β€”Michelle Mac

    Get a pair from Amazon for $7.41 (available for women's sizes 6-10).

    16. Or a three-pack of some Dr. Scholl's odor-eliminating spray powder.

    Promising Review: "Wanna kill athlete's foot and stink at the same time? Hands down, best product for it. You can also just spray it in your shoes/boots to kill smells." β€”jason hatfield

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $18.62.

    17. A pair of the classic Odor-Eaters insoles, the originals at fighting the smells from your sweaty feet.

    Promising Review: "My work boots now have a new defense to fight and control that corn-chip smell!" β€”Ray Lugo, Jr.

    Get a pair from Amazon for $4.23.

    18. A roll-on antiperspirant that'll significantly reduce sweating from your feet.

    Promising Review: "Nothing has stopped my feet from sweating, but this is the best stuff so far. I can buy a new pair of shoes and flood them out in one day. I have even tried some prescription stuff that didn't have this much of a concentration of aluminum chlorohydrate. It can be very drying to the feet. Most products similar to this say to apply at bedtime, but this one just says to apply on feet. Does have a strong smell, but better than the smell of feet." β€”Darthster

    Get it from Amazon for $13.18.

    19. A pack of Sneaker Balls you can just pop into your shoes to help deodorize those not-so-great smells.

    Promising Review: "These are the handiest little things for your closet, gym bag, or locker! Once out of the package, they are activated by rotating half the ball to expose the holes, which allow the deodorizer to work. It is a very strong smell, which is great for stinky shoes, but something to consider if you are sensitive to fragrances. The balls last for a few months before they need replacing." β€”Jennifer M.

    Get a pack from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in a variety of colors).

    20. A 12-pack of mini bamboo and charcoal bags to naturally purify the air and deodorize your shoes.

    Promising Review: "I have a 16-year-old son. These have allowed him to remain inside the house. Seriously. His mother and I were in negotiations with the homeowner's association to build a barn for him, because he obviously was born in one. HIs smell was horrible." β€”mike wilson

    Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $16.99.

    21. A natural spray that is specifically designed for sport shoes and sneakers, to fight foot and shoe odor and freshen feet.

    Promising Review: "When my teens get home from school and they take off their synthetic tennis shoes, I have to brace myself because the stink permeates the air quickly and becomes nauseating. This spray works on shoes that already stink. Spray the shoes, spray your teen's feet, let dry for about 30 seconds, and they are good to go for the day. We spray every morning, shoes and feet, and at night put some charcoal bags inside the tennis shoes. The scent can best be described as 'minty medical.' Yes, it smells minty but also smells antiseptic-like if that makes sense. We will keep ordering this. It works!" β€”CC Daigneault

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    22. A pack of Dr. Scholl's Odor-X foot powder made with Sweatmax technology to absorb all your foot sweat.

    Promising Review: "I play ping-pong and my feet get sweaty. I play tennis and my feet get sweaty. I walk to my car and my feet get sweaty. That's just the fact of the matter. California is under a water crisis, but only because they haven't figured out a way to convert my foot sweat into a usable liquid. Sucks for them because now that I am using this product my feet are so dry, I can wear shoes that don't require socks!" β€”B. Chum

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $13.01.

    23. A pair of washable insoles built to absorb sweat and reduce odor.

    Promising Review: "It's embarrassing, my feet stank so bad during the summertime thanks to non-breathable flats, I never wanted to take my shoes off in public (that means dressing rooms, people's houses, and even in front of my own SPOUSE). It was awful! I tried everything from powders and baking soda, to basically anything else that sounded like it would help. I was always wondering how everyone else wears them without their feet getting sweaty. Now, thanks to the power of the internet, I have found these INSOLES! What a lifesaver. They do make my shoes a little tight but I know now to try shoes on with these before committing to a purchase. They're great at absorbency. To wash, I put these in a mesh bag, then I air dry them." β€”Maui

    Get them from Amazon for $9.26+ (available in a wide range of sizes and in packs of 3).

    24. And a bottle of shoe disinfectant 'cause if your sweaty feet are trapped in your shoes all day we're guessing so are some serious germs.

    Promising Review: "I was looking for the exact kind used by bowling alleys/skate rental places, and this appears to be the same stuff, just in a slightly smaller, non-industrial can." β€”MannyFresh

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $16.
