SteriShoe Slays Germs And Bacteria In Your Footwear

It doesn’t matter how rich or how pretty you are.  Your shoes probably stink after an entire day of wearing, too.  Make sure you clean it up good for the next day with the SteriShoe, a UV-based sanitizer that kills those nasty germs living inside your footwear.

Why do shoes stink so much?  It probably has something to do with the fact that the human foot has more than 250,000 sweat glands that pour out up to eight ounces of sweat per day.  Fungus and bacteria love those moist, enclosed spaces, making your shoes a veritable breeding ground of those creatures responsible for the gnarly odor that drives away every girl you’ve ever taken home in the last decade.  And you wonder why you’re single.

The SteriShoe is a wall-plugged shoe insert that kills those invisible creatures hiding within the confines of your footwear.  Once you press the button, it will immediately go to work for the next 45 minutes (it automatically shuts off after that), killing 99.9% of the micro-organisms who have set up camp in your favorite pair of boots.  A built-in compression sensor ensures the UV will only be activated once it’s safely housed inside a shoe or covered up in a bag (when cleaning sandals and flip-flops), since prolonged UV exposure can be harmful to humans.

According to the product site, it perishes all germs responsible for toe nail fungus, athlete’s foot and bad odor.  It’s got the approval of the American Podiatric Medical Association and is highly recommended for diabetics as part of their general foot care regimen.

Each order of SteriShoe comes with two inserts, so you can clean both shoes at the same time.  Price is $129.95.
