so why don't you try baking soda ? Or better still, try the carpet
deoderizers, which have bicarb and some smelly stuff ! let them dry for
a tad......shouldbe good as new.....well sort of. Heard of a shoe expert
once comment that one should have two pairs of shoes....let one pair dry
out one day and wear the next etc.

Now sweating in a pair of shoes tells me that they make you sweat or
hold the perpiration in.....either way, dry them out.
