These shoes - a simple, unassuming pair shoes - are some of my absolute favorites . They are insanely comfortable, even when worn all day, and while they're a bit on the casual side, they still look okay enough for office attire. I've paired them with dress pants, leggings, skirts, jeans...pretty much anything and everything. There's just one problem - after awhile, they began to stink. A lot. Like, so much that when I took them off after the workday, the smell lingered in my room for quite some time. I tried a few different sprays/powders, hoping that would kill the scent and whatever odor causing issue there might be. It would work for awhile, but then the smell was right back. I actually debated just buying another pair of shoes, and downgrading my current pair to a lesser shoe status. But then I started thinking, and decided to try making my own shoe deodorizer, and see what happened. After all, what was there to lose?
