Is It Too Cold For Sandals?

October 1, 2014

Black SandalsHere in Colorado, it’s starting to get pretty cold outside. Too cold for shorts and sandals.

That means closed toed shoes are going to be getting a lot more use—and if it rains or snows, the same, thick/warm/waterproof pair might be getting quite a bit of extra wear.

Ideally, you don’t wear the same pair of shoes two days in a row, you always wear stockings or socks, and you take your shoes to get maintenanced.

Of course, no one does shoe maintenance because it’s 2014 and shoes are cheap and mass produced! Unless you’ve got Blahniks in your closet, you probably don’t do much shoe maintenance. But that doesn’t mean they don’t need it, especially if you’re not replacing them frequently.

But here’s the thing, you don’t need to go to a cobbler to do a little maintenance on your shoes. In fact, you can attack one of the most common (and embarrassing) problems with minimal effort: smell!

Gym shoes, yard work shoes, your favorite loafers, they all risk being used to the point of creating a stinky feet issue. But you can combat order with a quick spritz of Smelly Shoe Spray!

Smelly Shoe Spray has two ways it works: an immediate burst of peppermint to mask smell, and some colloidal silver to kill germs that cause odor.

You can use Smelly Shoe Spray preemptively—maybe you’re headed to the gym, and want to fight against Athlete’s Foot germs, maybe you’ve got a long day of travel ahead of you and want to be fresh, maybe you just want a little more life in your best worn pair of shoes. Give them a spritz to fight the build up of odor.

Or you can use Smelly Shoe Spray in an awkward spot—you get home from an outing, and—oof!—you need to give your shoes a quick spray before your companions are offended. Or maybe you realize they need a little help before you can wear them again!

And of course, you could just leave a bottle by the door in case guests need a little encouragement to feel comfortable taking off their shoes.

What are your favorite pair of shoes? How old are they?
