I am wearing canvas sneakers almost every day. But when I go indoor, my feet sweat and the shoes will smell. I was wondering how to protect my shoes from my sweat and keep them off smell? Thanks and regards!

I think this forum is for clothing, including how to take care about clothes and shoes.

Does a person who doesn't sweat really exist?

Yes. The bastard spawn of Spoo and Vox raised by RSS.

Stop wearing polyester socks works too.

There is a product called Steri shoe (looks like a shoe tree) that is a UV light sanitizer for shoes. It will kill all of the bacteria inside the shoe, thus killing anything that can smell.

Try simpler stuff first, but this could be a good next step if nothing is helping.

Wash in cold water (no bleach) and don't put them in the dryer, same for leather or suede sneakers.
