Great so far :) no more stinky shoes/feet
Bought these for the few canvas shoes I wear barefoot, and god they smell - anyone who has owned Keds or Vans can attest to this. I tried washing them with vinegar, washing machine, soaking it, scrubbing, nothing worked. So I just removed the Vans insoles and replaced it with this. I can't comment on durability and how long it'll last, I wore it just today to the office and usually I can actually smell the shoe sitting, I know, gross (it was just imprinted into the shoe at this point) and then I remove it and pee-ew. But this time, nothing, I removed them, nothing. The shoe itself still smells if you go close enough, which.. why would you.. please nobody do that for everyone's sake.
So so far, so good :) No more smell. Woo! I'm sure if you buy these from the get-go, it would prevent most of the smell in the first place. I hope I don't have to replace it often because it's just such a shame to throw out and fill up landfills.
Just a tip, if you have removable insoles in your shoes, the original ones, use it as a guide to cut - you'll have way better results.

all those shoes have a foul odor.
Never had shoe or foot odor ever......Bought this particular style of shoe NEW BALANCE FRESH FOAM CRUZ and I bought 4 different colors ..all those shoes have a foul odor.I have always worn NB and never had an issue ..THE CRUZ FOAMS are great shoe very comfortable but smell terrible..This INSOLE resolved the issue within hours... eliminated the foul ammonia odor at least 95% which makes them acceptable...once again never had this issue with any other show BUT the NB FRESH FOAM CRUZ.
SAVED THE SHOE WAS SERIOUSLY contemplating throwing them away,, even bought charcoal inserts that were bags and that helped a little but the INSOLES WORK amazing

Best insoles for odor control!
These are great insoles that keep the odor away. I replace them about every three months to keep my shoes and sneakers odor free. One tip...Get some Zinc Oxide powder. Before inserting the insole, take a 1/2 teaspoon of the powder and sprinkle over the inside bottom of the shoes. Rotate the shoes around to coat the entire bottom surface, and to get the powder down into the side edges and crevices. Dump out any excess. Shoes stay completely odor free. Do the same routine with each change of the insoles. Don't put the powder on top of the insoles, as it will get on your socks, and you will track it around the house!
If you are prone to bad foot odor, consider a foot powder with each sock change. Make sure to get some powder between the toes. Don't re-use socks between washing! When removing shoes, loosen laces and pull tongue up and forward as much as possible to get the best air flow. If you can't get at least 8 hours of drying time in between wears, get a second pair of shoes to alternate usage.

I love charcoal insoles! They really do reduce foot odor! I normally have to wash my shoes to get the odor out, especially since I tend to wear flats or shoes that you have to put your bare feet in a lot, because I wear these when I go dancing or will be walking for a long time and want comfortable. All that sweat builds up. However, since I started wearing these insoles, I notice that I barely notice foot odor in my shoes. These insoles are really thin though, so if you want them in addition to the comfort that thick insoles usually provide, I recommend wearing these along with regular insoles. They don't cushion feet much at all. They are more for foot odor and reducing and prevention bacterial growth in shoes. I won't be without these insoles. They make my feet feel clean and good :)

Does what it says.
These actually work. I like to wear flats without socks as commuting shoes and like anyone who wears shoes without socks knows, this can get ugly really fast. These beauties work really well. They tend to wear out about the 2 month mark, and if you alternate your shoes maybe you can get 3 months out of them. One of the only odor eliminating products I've used that does what it says. Nice work Dr. Scholls. I'll be back.

Effective, long lasting
At work all day, every day, sweaty feet - after awhile my shoes wouldn't smell so hot. These did the trick. And they last a lot longer than they say. For me, it was until my dog pulled them out and shredded them. Otherwise I might still be on the original insoles from years ago.

This is a great product -- I tried it with a new pair ...
OK..so I've battle stinky feet for so long. It runs in my family. This is a great product -- I tried it with a new pair of shoes and it really does soak up all the foot sweat and keeps my feet dry. After about a month though, I started smelling a hint of my usual foot odor so I had to swap out to a new set of insoles. Still think they are great though. I would recommend removing them at the end of the day to let them air out and changing them more frequently if you sweat a lot more. It was so nice to have a month of not having to worry about foot odor. Will get a couple more as needed.

Great Odor Reducing Insoles.
I've used about 4 of these the past two years (have purchased two 3 packs already). These are really comfortable and they really work! After using these, my sneakers don't smell anymore. I guess they've marginally made my shoes more comfortable. To be honest, after the first week, I don't notice them anymore. I will say, these are thick (0.25-0.4 cm?) and so I wouldn't recommend wearing them in non-sneaker shoes (like flats), as I don't think they'd fit well. These are rather large but VERY easy to cut into your size (and Dr. Scholl's prints the sizes on the shoes.
Tip from someone that completely used these wrong (how, you say?) the rubber grip part should be facing your show, show the darker, rougher, cloth part should be facing your fee.

Do Yourself and Your Friends and Family a Favor.
I used to wear sweat-proof socks, spray my shoes and feet with Odor Eaters, freeze my shoes, line my shoes with baking soda, and even wash my feet nearly every day with surgical-grade, anti-bacterial wash - still, my demon feet managed to eventually ruin every pair of shoes I owned. These insoles are the ONLY thing that has worked and keeps working. I even used them on a trip to Disney World, and my shoes and feet stayed stink-free after walking all day in the humidity. These might be one of the best things I've ever purchased.

These pads are great. I have really sweaty feet and my shoes ...
These pads are great. I have really sweaty feet and my shoes tend to stink. I used to get nervous in meetings that people in the conference room could smell my feet. Now I use these insoles and rotate my shoes and my stinky foot problem has gone away. The insoles tend to slip around at first but after wearing them a few times, they stay put in you shoes.
Pros: Good option for managing excessively sweaty feet.
Cons: They only last a month or two before needing to be swapped out
