I started using this stuff in 2015 when I saw it for sale at a climbing gym. My climbing shoes were beyond gross and I thought I was going to have to throw them away. This stuff worked! My shoes were salvaged. Beyond that, however, I noticed that my overall foot health improved greatly. Athletes foot that had plagued me since high school football went away as well as other issues. Overall this is just a really good product and it smells great. My wife loves it and started using it herself. Best stuff on the market.
After a few years of using those big disinfectant and deodorizing spray cans you see (and often smell) at the gym, I was skeptical when I switched to Friendly Foot's "lavender tea" powder. But I have kiddos and pets at home, and I knew I needed something safer than those smelly, toxic spray cans.
Right away, my shoes and gear closet where I keep my rack and other gear immediately starting smelling like a flower-filled meadow and not like a locker room. (This has improved domestic relations with my partner considerably.)
The powder is cruelty-free and made with organic essential oils and boric acid powder -- not baking soda, just in case you have a baking soda sensitivity. Friendly Foot's website says, "Your shoes will never smell again after you use Friendly Foot powder or spray", and in my case it turned out to be true.
Now I'm a paying customer and even occasionally use FF on my other shoes, too -- not just my climbing shoes.
Both the spray and power are amazing! I bought them for shoes but them I realized you can use them to deodorize anything! Even puppies who roll in poop and have a cast so they can't have a bath... I sprayed onto a wet washcloth and wiped off my puppy. Yes she hated it but it worked great!
When I received my product, I used it in my work boots. After the first use, I was able to notice a difference.
So far, I am happy.
I found Friendly Foot years ago at my climbing gym in San Francisco and have been using it ever since. My climbing shoes last much longer because they stay fresh and with no stinky smells. I've also got my teenager son to use it and he describes it as "It makes your shoes feel like you are walking in the clouds".
What a simple combination of effective ingredients! Love this small business!
Highly Recommend! Writing this as I'm buying several more bottles/canisters for myself and for gifts. The deodorizer works great and leaves a mild, neutral smell–not an overpowering/cover-up smell. The powder is inert and not irritating...plays well with knit wool socks and neoprene and leather...and the bottle sprinkle/puff application works really well and is, importantly, not annoying to use! I use this regularly and a container lasts almost a whole year.
My husband LOVES this product! It is the only product that has helped alleviate the smell in his climbing shoes. Our local climbing gym sells this product and I was so happy to see that they offered free shipping from the site directly, especially during COVID-19. I love purchasing from small businesses and the owner (Shaun) sent me a very nice email. I got a shipping notification within 15 minutes of making the purchase! We will continue to buy this product!
A few years ago I had to retire my climbing shoes. This wasn't due to wear, it was due to a terrible stink that had developed over marathon climbing sessions at the gym, to build up climbing endurance. Determined to not have my new pair of shoes suffer the same fate I started researching the problem and that is when I discovered Friendly Foot. I have been using it for over two years now and I couldn't be happier. The smell from my climbing shoes is no longer pushing my wife to the brink of a divorce!
Almost 2 weeks I have been using powder for work boots(1 month old boots). After 2 weeks of working in new boots an odor already has show it’s ugly face. I know this because of wife saying I can’t believe those are your new boots smelling.
Since applying the powder after a hard day of work there is no more odor at all. My boots are allowed in the house at night.
Amazing product and a life long customer.
I use the spray on all other sneakers and also smell has disappeared.
I cannot be more pleased. Thank you for making a product that works this amazing.
Even on everyday used work boots Friendly Foot Powder knocked out the unpleasant odors completely, totally gone. Love this product and would highly recommend to anyone .
Works great! Within three days of using this product I noticed a difference in my shoes. We all know how shoes can smell from sweaty summer feet! I would buy this this product again for sure!
I've been using this product for 3 years, it's golden. I never wear socks and my feet are always dry and fresh. Use it in my climbing and approach shoes. Sweet feet.
Have used it for years and through 2 kids stinky sewer smelling sports gear. Made the sewer smell disappear. Use it for sandals and regular shoes. Fabulous product. Have highly recommended it to other soccer and sports moms. You should sell it to soccer and hockey clubs to stock with gear given out at the beginning of the season.
I have been using Friendly Foot powder for at least 5 years. I discovered it initially through rock climbing, but since I work in healthcare and am on my feet constantly, use it much more often for non-climbing shoes. The spray was a new product for me -- it was great for leather boots and black shoes where the powder would sometimes get on the shoe.
The Foot Spray and Powder does an excellent job eliminating odor and bacteria in my running shoes after only 5 days of use. I highly recommend this product and with summer time coming it definitely will earn it's keep.
We’ve used this product for years because it’s the only one that actually works! Shipping is super fast as well
Whether it's a sweaty session outside or a beater session in the gym, throw a spray of this in the shoes and the next day my shoes come out smelling just fine. Would always recommend.
My shoes smell great! I just give my shoes a couple sprays when I take them off and they always smell fresh! Love this stuff!
I had come to just accept climbing shoe smell but this honestly changes everything. I have done the stereotypical round of "trying everything" but it actually applies to this stuff because it really gets rid of the smell! Thank you!
Seriously. My business is guiding.... my staff are all serious athletes.... stinky shoes are the norm.... no more! Like magic... this is truly the best powder Ever!
