Well, if yo have access to a nuclear submarinr hang 'em in front of the 
reactor with the control rods pulled out for a few hours... -)
Seroiusly, have you tried spraying thouroughly with Lysol? Some fungii 
are too hard to kill and too dangerous to play around with (especially 
the kind that live in bowling shoes... consider yourself lucky the fungii 
chose to cannibalize you shoes and NOT your feet)... you may just have to 
throw the loafers away, dude.
