Boot Bananas Boot Bananas
Great value for money, love it!
Brilliant for climbing shoes, keeps them smelling fresh at all times plus keeps the shape of the shoes. Highly recommended for everyone who is climbing often, especially when its hot. Will buy again.

Does what it says on the tin
Bought these together with my new shoes (Scarpa Vapors, review elsewhere on the site...hopefully).
Leaves the shoes smelling fresh and dry everytime.
They come with a small carabiner, which comes in handy for carrying the shoes around with the bananas inserted in them.
Mine are yet to ripen (they supposedly change colour as the absorption materials wear out), but they seem to be holding up well for the timebeing.

They do actually work, and seem well made.
They do what they say on the tin. They seem robust, although they weigh a fair bit, and if your shoes are already ripe this won't be an instant cure.

These boot bananas changed my life
I am a skeptic of most new flashy things - the internet, sliced cheese, high-frequency trading and certainly Boot Bananas. In almost all cases my suspicions have proven correct. In the case of the Boot Bananas, I was wrong.
Never have I been more happy to be wrong. These Boot Bananas have turned my climbing shoes into an olfactory experience. I used to climb for fun - now, I climb just for an excuse to savour a quick whiff of lavender and tea tree oil as I gently carress the Boot Bananas' rugged fabric exterior for a few moments as I zip up my shoe bag.
If you don't already own a pair, you need to take a long hard look in the mirror and seriously re-evaluate your life because you haven't truly lived.

a must for any hiker, climber or runner. they smell lovely!
A must for anyone that does lots of activity in footwear that starts to smell after a while. Keeps your shoes / boots fresh. A fun way to freshen up those stinky shoes.

Good smell prevention
I have been blighted with smelly climbing shoes ever since I started climbing and I have finally found a solution! They have a very strong lavender smell to start with, but it calms down after a while and all I can smell in my shoes still is lavender and not feet. Long may it continue! I can feel that it dries out the inside of the shoe too, which I think is key to keeping the smell away.
