For cleaning sandals and sports shoes


Why sandals, sports shoes and footbeds start to smell after use…

Sandals, sports shoes, insoles and footbeds have one thing in common; over time, contact with your bare feet or sweaty socks will lead to a build-up of dirt, sweat and body oils. This leads to bacterial growth and smelly footwear!

Why sandals, sports shoes and footbeds start to smell after use…

If you’re a keen sports person or simply enjoy some active leisure time, your sports shoes are likely to smell bad at some point and the same can also be said for sandals.

Wearing sports shoes or sandals with bare feet will lead to a build-up of dirt, sweat and body oils . This will encourage the growth of bacteria, which cause smelly footwear, especially in hot conditions. The same issue will apply to shoes, footbeds and insoles, even if you’re wearing socks.

Additionally, if sandals and sports shoes are not adequately cleaned, bacterial growth will lead to decomposition of the materials and stitching. This is especially common in natural materials such a leather and cork as they are broken down by bacteria for nourishment, leading to them rotting and reducing the useful life time of your footwear.

Nikwax Sandal Wash is a highly effective cleaner and deodorizer which has been designed and optimized to clean and deodorize all non-waterproof footwear, including shoes, sandals and next to skin areas of footwear, such as insoles and footbeds.

Allow footwear to dry naturally…
  1. Leave footwear to dry at room temperature.
  2. Paper can be stuffed into the toes to absorb excess moisture; this should be replaced when wet.
  3. Keep footwear away from fires and radiators, drying too quickly can cause bonded soles to peel.
