Try a shot of Lysol disinfecting spray directly onto the shoes. I use Thai crystal deodorant on my feet and that keeps it smelling fresh all day.

Answer by ellie

The odor is caused by bacteria, which will need to be killed. The quickest, cheapest, and least-invasive way to do this is to seal the shoes in a zip-loc bag, and freeze them overnight. This will kill most of the bacteria and the smell.

In the future, if you want to wear shoes without socks, try removable insoles made from sisal fiber (lots on amazon) which can be put in the washing machine when they get funky. Also consider coating your feet in Gold Bond Foot Powder (or similar) to help soak up excess moisture and keep things fresh.
