Here’s a fact for you - Sweat from feet causes shoes to become breeding grounds for the fungus and bacteria that cause toenail fungus, athlete's foot, and odour. Each foot sweats up to 8 oz. per day!! Yep, thats right, if you get to thinking too much about that, it is a bit gross.

Maybe it is time to wonder how much bacteria gets built up inside of a pair of shoes you never wash.  Considering that we wear socks before clamping on those pair of awesome shoes that you bought from Nike. Despite that, the fact mentioned above still holds. So, here is something that you might want to think of buying: The SteriShoe ultraviolet shoe sanitizer. This is a clinically proven way to clean the inside of shoes and remove shoe odor without using harsh chemicals. The device, which is inserted into the shoe just like a supporting shoe tree, operates for 45 minutes and then shuts off automatically. Thought to be useful for people with nail fungus, athlete's foot, and foot complications of diabetes, the device might also help prevent embarrassing moments for people with stinky feet.

The compression sensor requires that the SteriShoe® ultraviolet shoe sanitizer be in a shoe and slightly compressed. If the SteriShoe® shoe sanitizer is treating a shoe and it is removed from the shoe, the compression sensor will be triggered and the power to the lamp will be stopped.
