Rated 5 out of 5Â by AndyMT Excellent foot odour destroyer.
Everyone knows feet smell at times, but mannnnnn can climbing shoes get bad. Seriously this one dude I climb with takes his climbing shoe off and the air is filled with the stench close to that of a freshly manured farmers field. The kind folk of Yorkshire will tell you that's what fresh air smells like, but compact that into the confines of a bouldering area, or have your stench ridden mate's feet beneath you as he belays whilst you climb and it takes everything you have not to bring up last nights spaghetti. Someone told me to get 'some of them bananas' for my shoes, at first I thought I was being pranked, like, give it a few days and your shoes will surely just smell like rotten bananas? Then I remembered Asda have fake bananas, that look like a banana, that you put another banana inside, so there must be some kind of shoe banana. A quick Google search later and I found these bananas.Thankfully Snow & Rock had some in stock, I couldn't bare the thought of pulling my climbing shoes out of my bag in public until I obtained some bananas, what if my shoes smelled like the streets of 1800's London and I had just been around it too long to notice? As soon as I got back and opened them I realised I was safe, my god they really do liberate you from the overwhelming foist prominent in many climbers shoes and fill your nostrils with a polite 'lavandery' scent, nowadays they seem to put it into everything, like those scented doggy doo doo bags you cram into your pocket on a walk, yes, they help you get some funny looks when people walk past and get a whiff of your somewhat girly scented jacket pocket. Anyway in summary, if you have stinky feet and people notice, buy these, buy two sets, or a set for every pair of shoes, because seriously, hobo scent is definitely not pleasant, and the fact you can't smell it, quite frankly is frightening, it's worth the Â£12.99 to not be ridiculed for at least a semi lengthy portion of your life.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Smellyfeet Well worth it. Definitely recommend.
I am normally reluctant to spend money. My climbing shoes stink so are banished to live outside. These have been a fantastic find. My shoes dry out more quickly and actually smell pleasant! The bananas are quite heavy so I hope the powder within will last a while. Definitely better value than buying another pair of shoes!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by scott44 Works a treat!
It's great to find a product that does exactly what it promises. My climbing shoes used to stink all the time and washing with water didn't do much to alleviate that. Now, after their weekly rinse, I stuff the Boot Bananas in and let them dry out fully. They actually smell quite nice when I come to wear them again. A little bit of the powder in the bananas stays in the shoes and that helps to reduce odour even when the bananas have been removed. I don't know how long they will last as I've only used them for a couple of months but I'd be happy with 6 months' use and then buy another one.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Ninemusen We are very content with the boot bananas. They smell nice, and so does the shoes we put them in.
Using them for climbing shoes and sneakers is quite a success.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Cian22 Really good quality product
This is a neat ski boot freshener although I guess that it could be used for any set of footwear. It is machine washable and draws moisture out of the boot. It even changes colour when it is "full". Lets see how my boots are in time for next Winter?

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Rembi These neat bananas refresh your shoes and keeping your feet from smelling bad.
A great gadget that I needed really badly. I use these for my climbing shoes which started to smell really bad. The bananas work really well to make your shoes and feet smell nice. The antibacterial properties work really well, they make your feet feel fresh after a whole day's climbing/walking. They do exactly as stated on the packet, very well and at a reasonable price!

Did exactly what they were supposed to do. Great value for money. Would buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by WDupre Top product
Handmade by an independent UK producer and does a great job. They keep my climbing shoes smelling fresh, look great, and even turn brown when they're saturated. Highly recommended.
