How to Survive a Teenage Boy’s Smelly Shoes


A teenage boy’s smelly shoes are one of the top worst smells I’ve ever come across. When they use the shoes for sports and practice, the sweat and hormones create a walking disaster! Both of my boys are spending summer mornings at football practice so I get the stink double-time. What they don’t know is that I have a secret weapon that will prevent me having to gag every time I open the shoe closet – ARM & HAMMER™ Shoe Refresher Spray

Football Practice + Summer = Teenage Boy’s Smelly Shoes

Football practice happens early in the morning; however, it doesn’t take long to heat up here in the south once the sun starts climbing in the sky. The showers are less than attractive so my boys slip their sweaty, socked feet into their every-day shoes after being in cleats. The man-made materials in standard athletic shoes hold onto odors and the germs, creating the perfect environment for teenage boy’s smelly shoes

ARM & HAMMER™ Shoe Refresher Spray

Personally, I have thrown away numerous pairs of shoes because of the odors acquired by daily use. I try to switch up my shoes; however, once you break-in a pair, they become your go-to shoes for comfort, right? There are a ton of DIY tips out there but most of them do nothing more than cover up the smell. I keep my shoes clean with a surface wash but running them through the washer is a must at a certain point. They can’t be washed every day so the ARM & HAMMER™ Shoe Refresher Spray is my new favorite tool to keep my favorite shoes around for a longer period of a time. 

We don’t want white marks on our clothing from our deodorant, so why not keep the marks off of our feet, too? ARM&HAMMER™ gives 9 out of 10 consumers confidence in their quality, heritage, and safe ingredients.
