  Q: Any tips for shoe / foot hygiene?

  A: updated (02/02/2012)

Many people mistakenly think the odour produced from a shoe is the result of smelly feet. In a healthy person feet rarely produce any odour. The smell is the result of the material used in the construction of the shoe. Leather is very good at absorbing perspiration and extracting it through it's pores. Other materials are not so proficient at this. They absorb the sweat and bacteria over time but do not do a good job of extracting it. Therefore they will need regular cleaning, you can find a wealth of odour sprays for sale and other products for cleaning inside a shoe.
