When I was offered the opportunity to do a SteriShoe product review, I was honestly elated! No exaggeration or hyperbole in that statement. I have two words that will help you understand my joy at receiving this product: teenage son.
We have tried every remedy known to man to get rid of the horrific odor in his shoes and on his feet:
- Tea Bags
- Leave them outside
Most of these methods had little to no affect on the problem. As a mother, I see my child going through a transitional phase and I want so badly to make it easier for him. Feeling embarrassed with him as we sat in a crowded auditorium last weekend, after running through the rain, and started to smell that familiar scent of his wet shoes.
As Pictured above, the SteriShoe ultraviolet sanitizer kit (arv $129.95) contained:
- (2) SteriShoe Shoe Sanitizers (left & right)
- (2) Ultraviolet light bulbs (pre-installed)
- (2) Shoe Straps
- (2) Shoe Bags
- (1) Power Supply
- (1) Instruction Manual
- (1) Thank You Card
The innovative SteriShoe shoe sanitizer kills the germs that reside inside shoes with a special germicidal ultraviolet light (UVC). The SteriShoe promised to safely and effectively kill microorganisms “that cause toenail fungus, athlete’s foot, and offensive foot odor”. All while being non-toxic and using no harsh chemicals, sprays, or drugs.
As instructed, we placed the left and right shoe sanitzers in the respective shoes, put each assembled shoe into one of the provided SteriShoe branded shoe bags and closed them with the drawstring. Then we just pressed the on/off button to begin the treatment. After one 45 minute treatment, we could already “smell” a difference in his shoes and in his room.
Just some things to note:
- The SteriShoe ultraviolet shoe sanitizer will not work on shoes without heel support. They must be compressed to work properly.
- The SteriShoe ultraviolet shoe sanitizer will not work if it detects ambient light. The provided shoe bags are used to darken the shoe environment.
- The SteriShoe does not treat medical conditions; it is intended to provide a clean and healthy environment for feet inside shoes.
My son starts Junior High in a few weeks. Just saying that freaks me out on so many levels. I’ve worried a great deal about whether or not he will be okay, if he will make friends, and if he will be bullied like a time or two in the past. He is growing and maturing every day and we are working hard to prepare him for the harsh realities of Junior High. Will that be enough to make me stop worrying in general? Probably not, but one thing I will not be worrying about is him being picked on about his tennis shoes smelling bad.
