The post that has driven the most search traffic to my blog thus far has been the Adidas Adipure Trainer Review. While many of the search terms involved questions about the quality of the shoe and it’s strength training and running shoe merits the vast majority wondered whether they could be washed and if so how to wash them. Apparently my sentiments on the smell have been felt universally.
I have good news and bad news for those seeking stench-less shoes.
First the good news. The Adipure Trainers are machine washable with no adverse effects that I have noticed. Also, most other barefoot shoes have this odor problem as well. One of my friends throws his vibrams in a box in his basement to contain the smell.
The bad news is that the smell comes back relatively quickly. Apparently the polyester material absorbs odor causing bacteria very easily. This can be alleviated somewhat by using toe socks. Otherwise you will likely be washing your Adipures fairly often.
Do you have recommendations on reducing the odor emanating from your Adipures? Please let me know in the comments!
