Some people have really bad foot odor, and this makes their sneakers smell really bad. Electronics maker Panasonic thinks it has the answer. The company has introduced a new shoe deodorizing gadget that can apparently remove smells from shoes in just a few hours, restoring them to a non-foul smelling state.
Model, MS-DS100, uses Panasonic’s “nanoe X” technology to get rid of the unwanted stench. The gadget sits on top of the foot openings of both shoes, where it then generates fine-particle ions from the moisture in the air, dispersing them “to every corner of the shoes,” and eliminating odors.
The deodorizing process takes about 5-7 hours; presumably less for less stinky shoes and more for really nasty funky smell factories. Your mileage may vary. The device can be plugged into the wall and also operates on rechargeable batteries. So it seems like a great gadget for travelers who have a stinky shoe problem and no outlet. They say that each use costs you about a dollar, which is much cheaper and less wasteful than buying new shoes or even new pairs of Odor Eaters.
Your shoes will finally smell good again. Well, at least for a little while.
