Ever hear the one about the gym shoes? You don't want to, it stinks. Ba dum tsh.

But seriously, a smelly foot sitch is no joke. Flashback to my big brother’s after-school ritual of plopping down next to me and slowly removing his thick tube socks as he proudly proclaimed, “Mmm... they smell like buttered popcorn.” This childhood trauma may well be why I now force my fam to remove footwear before entering our house.

Today there’s a simple fix for funky feet: Amazon’s top-selling Elite Sportz Shoe Deodorizer and Foot Spray. Spray the minty fresh mix of moisturizing essential oils and herbs directly on feet and/or inside shoes to keep embarrassing odor at bay. And right now, it's just $10.50 to boot!

If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And even those without Prime get free shipping on orders of $25 or more).

Prevents odor — and then some

Bromodosis, aka smelly feet, is a very common and (thankfully) treatable condition. Perspiration leads to the odor-causing bacteria, but this stuff nips it in the bud, preventing foul odor and even athlete’s foot.

Some 5,000 Amazon customers have rated it with a full five stars, including this shopper, who'd been searching for a product like this. “It's more effective than any foot powder or aerosol spray I've used (and I've used a lot of the big brands). It has a much milder and more pleasant scent, so you don't gas yourself applying it or trail around a strong scent that makes it obvious you were using a foot spray/powder.... It seems to reduce calluses and blisters...softens and exfoliates the skin. It does not seem to stain socks or shoes, and washes out easily.”

"Holy moly!" exclaimed another convert: "I spray the top and bottom of each foot and rub in. I then spray each shoe once and put on. My feet are amazing at the end of the day. Now if you're starting with a pair of shoes already tainted with your foot fragrance, it is still a dramatic improvement. However, once I got new shoes add started fresh, holy moly amazing. I just got my second bottle.... I am so happy I pulled the trigger and tried this product. Thanks for knocking it out of the park!"

Hallelujah, it's safe for kids!

Those with a real-life version of Pig-Pen at home can rejoice. A few pumps of this nontoxic, natural formula will erase those stink lines surrounding your kid's feet! Boy, do they need it. 

"My son's feet would gag us every time he took his shoes off. Especially in close quarters!" said one grateful parent. "I washed his shoes then had him spray his feet and the shoe. It was miraculous. We can actually be in the same room with him now! I spray his wrestling shoes a couple times per week. If you have ever experienced the wrestling room at a high school, you'll understand how bad the whole room smells. ... Imagine the shoes after practice! This stuff works!"

Another mom who's been there, smelled that said: "I'm always skeptical of natural remedies. I'm a bleach and Lysol kind of gal! My 12-year-old daughter's feet and shoes were always so smelly. Even shortly after getting new shoes, they would reek! Seriously, my husband's work boots don't even smell like her gym shoes smelled. ... The smell was overwhelming! She applies the spray before putting on her socks and shoes. She enjoys doing it, because the spray feels and smells good."

After four months of use, the mother added: "My daughter uses two spritzes on each foot daily and there's still about an inch left in the bottle. She's wearing the same pair of gym shoes and they're still stink-free. Even more amazing: She often wears flats without socks in summer and those don't smell either. I ordered a second bottle today so it'll be on hand when this one runs out ... in about a month."

It even rescues relationships?

Love involves all the senses. And an olfactory insult can really kill the mood. Just listen to this rom-com testimony, which came close to being a tragedy: “Stinky feets BEGONE!!! I have some rank feet. ... My bf couldn’t stand it anymore. Every time I’d come home..., he’d literally make me go to another room to air out my feet or wash them. He’d gag and seriously it wasn’t fair to him to have to smell that. ... I didn’t realize how bad it was until I moved in with him. Poor guy had no clue what he was in for! Lol! … This has saved not only my feet but my relationship. It really is hard to sleep next to someone who smells like rotting cheese all the time. It’s helped with the sweating so much (which was the main cause of my cheesy feet) and the best part is it’s all-natural! ... My feet smell like heaven when my shoes come off now. No more complaints from the boyfriend either and all is well again in our happy little home.”
