If you were going to go down that hole, I would suggest a UV light shoe disinfector and rubbing alcohol for any used shoe. As far as reshaping, you might achieve decent results with water:
You've got some really good input from some really knowledgeable forum members but if it we're me, at a buck-thirty, I would grab those in a heartbeat. I wouldn't be surprised if some of the crease, especially those on the side, are exacerbated by those crazy shoe trees. As @madhat (one of the more knowledgeable sources for shell maintenance) points out, these will never look like new. I would purchase, fumigate, load up the interiors with some Kiwi Shoe Stretch Spray and place some proper shoe trees in them. Hit them with a dear bone, brush, brush, brush, and wear them with jeans with pride. The price is great, the effort not excessive, and these have the added benefit of being a somewhat rare make (at least I don't recall seeing them).
