So, my boy @fairchildXA started a problem solving blog the other day. You can catch it here. This inspired me to solve one of the problems that I blogged about a while back and have actually had pretty consistent traffic on. This leads me to believe that everyone needs this problem solved.
How do we keep the Sperry Stink away??
First, I firmly believe that wearing socks would get rid of this problem. However, socks don’t seem as cool or trendy as going barefoot. Also, I’ve seen Devynne Bruce wear a short pair of socks with hers but they looked like they were girls, and well, I’m no girl.
So, here’s the way to solve the problem as least as I’ve seen it. Art of Manliness has a whole article on this. I don’t do all that they recommend but I will share with you what I tried this past weekend.
From Art of Manliness-
Freeze ‘em. Here’s a trick from Grandma. Place you shoes in a ziploc plastic bag and stick them in the freezer overnight. The cold temperature will kill the odor-causing bacteria. When you pull your shoes out, they’ll smell nice and fresh. And it feels really nice to stick your feet in a pair of cold shoes on a hot Oklahoma day.
