Fragrant and moisture-absorbing shoe deodorisers - Saving the world from fruity feet!
If you're an active person, you know that unfortunately shoes and boots do not always keep their brand new smell. Over time, that needs to be controlled - enter Boot Bananas! Boot Bananas keep footwear dry and fresh using moisture-absorbent minerals and fragrant essential oils with anti-bacterial properties.
Originally designed for climbing shoes which are renowned for a less than pleasant smell after multiple uses, these banana shaped shoe deodorisers can actually be used in all shoes including running, biking, hiking, snowboarding and everyday pumps.
Made from all natural ingredients, they emit a pleasant smell to keep your shoes nice and fresh. They have a really neat feature known as the 'Ripeness Indicator' where as they soak up moisture, they will slowly 'ripen' and change colour. You will be able to tell when your Boot Bananas are ready to be replaced because they will turn entirely brown and need to be replaced.
To extend the life of your Boot Bananas, dry them out in the sun or near a radiator and store them in the resealable pouch that they come in when not in use. Do not store in pouch when wet.
