How to get rid of smelly fragrance in a pair of shoes..? I mean when I wear on new socks with this particular shoe it gets smelly after the first 2 hours of wearing. This started about a month ago with this shoe. Is washing it will clear it from the things that causes this smell?

Place your shoes in a direct sunlight. This is only the way to aviod smell. You have to wash your socks regularly and you must wear them. Before wearing the shoe, you must confirm that it must dry. If you had swept in your palms, then try to use a anti swept cloth in your shoe. They readily avialable in any shoe store.

The simplest solution will be to buy new shoes, and the second one if you can wash them. I am not sure what is causing this bad smell but good luck.

I can understand as to how embarassing things would be wearing a pair of smelly shoes. But there's nothing to worry oyu can always get over it,so cheer up :) To my knowledge shoes become smelly due to bacterial growth,so you can either consult a dermatologist or use baking soda inside your shoes and keep it under the sun. Just wash your foot and have them clean always,use some powder and perfumes before you put on your socks. Things will be fine. :) Take care
