Ever wonder why your shoes smell? There are over 250,000 sweat glands in your feet that can generate half a pint of moisture a day. Now imagine working out in your sneakers, and that's why they can have a foul odor. The best way to keep your shoes smelling fresh is to do one thing: Let them dry out as soon as possible after using. Placing shoes in direct sunlight or in a very sunny spot can help dry them out quickly. And rotating shoes so you're not wearing the same ones every day can help, too. Last tip: Stuff the soles with newspaper. Newsprint is designed to absorb ink, so it'll absorb excess moisture, too.
