so im the most flat footed person you'll ever meet. I bought a pair of new balance sneakers (suggested by podiatrist) with my custom made insoles. After 12 hours of working my shins/ankles and heels would KIIIILL with pain! They were so swollen. I had to do something...so i invested in a pair of Danskos for work. i absolutley LOVE THEM! they are the only shoes i can wear and be on my feet for 12 hours. I never even had to break them in like the person selling me suggested. i wore them my first day for 12 hours. I was SO happy to find a pair of shoes that worked for me, i invested in several other pairs. i have like 5 pairs of danskos (No joke!!)
Anyway...my work shoes, becausse i wear them the most STINK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! so bad. I mean, awful awful awful. I think its because they really dont get any ventilation. i tried buying shoe air freshners, i tried baking soda, i tried freezing them. (I live in wisconsin and it gets like below 0 at night so i just keep them in the garage.) I've tried antibacterial wipes, febreeze...you name it!!! i change my socks like 3-4 times per shift. I feel like if i can smell it, i wonder what my coworkers might think. i tried purchasing one product off amazon but im really not expecting much.
Does anyone else have this problem or suggestions to cure this awful smell?? I've had them for 1.5 years now and i would hate to have to buy a new pair every year.
any suggestions or comments would be amazing!! Thanks.
