I haven't yet had any odour issues with my KSOs, even with wearing them up to 8 hours in a day. They still smell the way they did when they came out of the box, that odd rubbery smell which is neither good nor bad, just rubbery.That said, I have never had odour issues with my feet. So maybe it's me...Alan
I too have never had any foot odor problems prior to VFF. I bought Injinji socks today, but I feel like a sell-out. It's kind of spoiling the whole "barefoot" feel for me.I'll just wash both VFF and feet as often as possible, but I think what none of us are discussing here, is the possibility that in the middle of the night, while we sleep, reps from Nike and Adidas, and all the major shoe companies, are spraying our VFF with an odorous solution. And, of course, it makes sense that they have not been able to penetrate the lair of Justin Owings, after all, he is the birthdayshoe compound Lord.
Registered just for this thread.I've done the diluted vinegar trick and it was a short term solution. The users who mentioned material staying in the shoe was dead accurate. That needs to be scrubbed out. A finger will work, an old tooth brush will work. Get that out. Get in the toes, too.My favorite solution as of right now is simplegreen pro3 with fungicide. I got it at home depot. It's heavy duty stuff so be sure to dilute per the directions. Shoes smell good, odor stays gone MUCH longer. I soak for only about an hour or so and then sun dry/air dry.
Thanks.Yeah, I'd be interested to see how others fared with it. I've always liked Simple Green products and I hope there's no side effects to using this heavier duty stuff. Give us an update Ableobject ASAP!
