A Quick Fix for Smelly Skechers

Here's a quick little project to fix smelly Skechers.

I bought a pair of Skechers last year and they are absolutely my most comfy pair of shoes. In fact, the only reason I don’t wear them all the time is because they either smell too bad to wear or they’re in the wash to get de-funked. Which is a bummer because they’re the perfect cute little shoe to wear with casual capris or crop pants. So I decided to take a stab at solving the problem.

How I fixed my smelly Skechers.

Test application on scrap fabric

Before I did anything to my shoes, I did a couple of test applications on some scrap fabric.

Put a drop ofPut a drop of Dritz Fray Check in each spot you are adding an eyelet

First I put 3 drops of Dritz Fray Check in a line along the instep of my shoes. I left it to fully dry, then punched a hole in each spot.

Using the eyelet pliers, I set an eyelet in each hole. Then I applied Dritz Fray Check on the inside of the shoe all around each eyelet.

I’ve been wearing mine around the house without socks and it’s actually helped! I’ll probably still have to wash them once in a while, but if I can wear them more than a day or two before they’re unbearable I’m happy!

  1. So clever! Never would have thought to do this. I love slip on shoes like this, too 🙂

      They’re an insanely comfortable shoe! I’ve worn them for trade shows where I’m on my feet for days and they were awesome – except for the one little (okay, kind of big) problem.
