It’s one of the those things no one wants to talk about but everyone has an issue with – smelly running shoes. And it’s to be expected when you’re running high mileage, especially in the hot summer weather. With Chicago Marathon training upon us, I’m so happy I got the opportunity to test SmellWell’s shoe freshener pouches that help prevent bacteria and freshen up your shoes.
According to their page on Amazon, “SmellWell is a novelty that does not hide the odors without removing the cause of the problem. The contents of the bags will absorb moisture and odors. [And] after a few days of use, reduces the bad smell that marked instead replaced by a fresh scent… SmellWell is a simple, stylish and environmentally friendly solution that really takes away the smell and that everyone can use.” And let me tell you, the actual product lives up to the description!
Right after I finish up a run, I insert those babies into my shoes and let them sit until I need to move them to the next pair. Not only do I use them for my running shoes but my work shoes and in my gym bag if I have to carry my stinky clothes around all day. They have a very fresh scent that isn’t overpowering like most fresheners. And the pouches live for about 3 months, so it’s really worth the money, especially since with code “BIBPRO10,” you can buy 2 and get a third for free on Amazon. You’re welcome.
Now with all this hype, it only seems fair to offer a pair to one of you! That’s right, it’s giveaway time!
