I have Alpinestars Corozal boots, which I wouldn’t buy again but tats another story. I’ve never suffered smelly feet but these boots stink ! Any one got a cure / solution please befor I burn the lousy things.
I bought a boot dryer I use for my off-road and dual-sport boots. After a ride I spray Lysol inside to kill bacteria, then put them on the dryers. I had to toss a pair of Fox boots several years ago because they smelled like a skunk carcass.
Some dry cleaning shops offer cleaning of hockey/football/sports equipment with ultra violet, infrared, ozone and dry cleaning.
I had done my hockey equipment a few years ago as it was so putrid I couldn't even store it in the house. I thought I'd give this a try for my Sidi riding boots.
Worked great - completely got rid of the smells and I've had the boots for another 4 years without issue. When they get stinky I just take them in for another cleaning (about $40 CDN).
The answer is Peet Boot Dryer. I threw away some nice work boots due to smell before discovering the magic of a boot dryer. Now, I use the Peet dryer every nite, and smell problems are gone! No fan, no noise, but overnight boots are dried out preventing stink.....
