I tried all of the traditional fixes (baking soda, freezing, etc.) on my old (5.10 synthetic) shoes, none of them worked.

I even tried this: http://www.mcnett.com/...Eliminator-P170.aspx
Which seemed to help a bit, but not enough, in the end I gave up and threw the shoes out.

I've found that leather shoes are better (less smelly), and what I do now with my shoes is give them a spray with this after each climb

and then store them out of the bag with a shoe plug inside (you could also use a chamois, newspaper, just anything to absorb the moisture). So far that has done the trick.

I think in this case, as usual, prevention is better than cure. Smile
