Whether it's a rubber shoes, sandals, or what ever it is, do you even wash them? I thought about doing mine since they really starting to stink Fortunately, today was the opportunity for me to do it. Though it wasn't clean enough, I'm sure I can improve the next day I missed another shoe, but that's because I don't wear them often, the outer sole is too soft for me to use.

I do not wash my athletic shoe, I only have one pair. But I am scrupulously clean in my feet and socks, so my shoes rarely would smell. When they get old say a year, I buy new ones instead of washing. My nephew definitely needs new shoes though lolz

I used to have two pairs @TiarasOceanView but I realized later the other shoe was meant for mountain trekking not jogging or running. Im hoping to get the shoe dad sent me months ago.

Mine don't get dirty so I don't wash them, I just wipe them if necessary and keep on their respective boxes.

I was going to wash my shoes not too long ago but my son told me that actually tears down the shoe to wash them. I know I washed my tennies as a kid, but they were not the same as the shoes today, at least not the ones I have now.

Hello @carebear29 so, you won't wash them if they're not always used or not good on your foot?

No, I do not wash my shoes often. I have a deodorizer that I spray inside the shoes after wearing these. It takes care of the scent. By the time, I wear my shoes again, these are dry.

I didn't even know that was possible, maybe I should also try that and see what happens @allen0187

Yes, I wash them often. Similar with what I do with my electric fan. I consider it therapeutic.

I always do this once a month. Due to time constraint, I cannot do it as regular as possible. But I do have spare shoes, slippers, etc.

Hello @Shavkat so it's okay to do it once a month? I would probably do it weekly, even my feet sweats after an exercise.

You can wash sneakers and rubber shoes - also the rubber mats from the shower and the bathtub - in the washing machine at a low temperature.

None of my shoes smell, but I have white sneakers that I do wash when they get dirt on them.

I seldom wash it. My children like to help washing my slipper. They are looking for chances to play with the water.
