Not Antifungal


Bacteria is a serious nuisance to so many people trying to manage foot odor. You can mask the odor with strong scents, but that odor won’t be going anywhere. That is because to eliminate odor, you have to treat it at the source. When it comes to feet and shoes, it usually is less a matter of hygiene and more a matter of bacteria.

When bacteria enters an area, it can be hard to get it to leave. Bacteria itself loves warm and moist areas, making sweaty socks and shoes a hotbed for it. Without using an antibacterial spray like Elite Sportz Shoe Deodorizer, you aren’t able to interfere with the breeding ground that exists in your shoes and socks.

This sounds gross because it kind of is! It is still common and normal for most people to be dealing with bacteria in this area. To combat bacteria, three components are known mainly for their ability to do so. Peppermint, lavender and tea tree essential oils in the Elite Sportz Shoe Deodorizer can treat the underlying cause of funk.


Tea tree oil in a foot care product usually indicates antifungal properties. That is what makes this Elite Sportz Shoe Deodorizer such an outlier when comparing its ingredients to antifungal products. Peppermint oil and neem are often associated with fighting against microbes that cause fungus as well. That being said, this spray isn’t effective against fungus really at all.

If you have a serious fungal problem in your feet and shoes, there just isn’t enough power in the Elite Sportz Shoe Deodorizer to combat it effectively. Since it has so many antibacterial oils in it, they come together to create a relatively sound product to fight bacteria. The number of antifungal components in this solution isn’t enough to provide relief from the fungus.

Luckily, nowadays almost all of the best foot soaks have enough tea tree oil to combat fungus. There are inexpensive options that can be used in addition to a spray such as this that can help you. If your problem is a primarily musky odor and discolored or thickened nails, you are going to want to reconsider treating your feet for bacterial odors and instead focus on primarily fungal treatments.


There is quite a mix of unexpected plant derivatives in the Elite Sportz Shoe Deodorizer. When reading their ingredient list, it can be overwhelming due to their 11 different botanicals. Being unfamiliar with at-home remedies, you may not know what exactly does what and why it is in this product. There are different “groups” essentially in the botanicals being offered.

Some like aloe vera and vitamin e soothe and heal the skin. This is perfect for dry, cracked, smelly athlete’s feet. Sore and tired feet after a long day will love how the chamomile and tea calm their inflammation. Ginger can reduce the appearance of scars and give your skin a new life!

Unbalanced color on the feet or aging skin can be refreshed with dandelion as well. Boswella has similar effects. All the plant power in this Elite Sportz Shoe Deodorizer is intended to target common foot ailments. Inflammation, blisters, and scarring can all find relief thanks to this blend of ingredients. Your feet will look and feel better when using these directly on the skin.


If you’re looking for a cheap long term fix, the Elite Sportz Shoe Deodorizer could be a solution. That is if you’re looking primarily for a foot spray and not a shoe spray. Being priced similarly to large bags of foot soaking salts with similar essential oils makes the value of the Elite Sportz Shoe Deodorizer confusing.

It may seem like, at four ounces per bottle, that you aren’t getting what you pay for. According to reviews, this actually can last months with frequent use, making it a wonderful deal. At a low cost to the consumer, you can get what is essentially a foot massage oil, deodorizer, and soothing treat for the end of a long day at work for those constantly on their feet.

While this product isn’t the most versatile and in turn may not be for everyone, it is completely worth the price. A small four-ounce bottle is a norm for this kind of product, but without context, it just seems like you’re paying a lot for very little. Don’t let the size misconstrue your perception of the value. Just a couple sprays and a rub on the feet is enough to harness its deodorizing power!


None of these skin benefits would mean much without it working to do what it claims to do, which is deodorize feet and shoes! Reviewers were floored at how effective this product was. It is so rare to see so many positive reviews straight out the gate when looking at a product, but the Elite Sportz Shoe Deodorizer had them in spades.

People who previously had given up on finding a solution to their stink found that the Elite Sportz Shoe Deodorizer was their saving grace. There is one factor that needs to be addressed with the effectiveness of its deodorizing abilities. Unlike with some sprays where you liberally spray the shoe and allow to dry, feedback suggests this works best on new or clean shoes.

If you have an existing pair of shoes you can’t seem to get odor out of, you are going to want to clean them before using the Elite Sportz Shoe Deodorizer for the best results. There didn’t seem to be that much of a difference between spraying sweaty or clean feet, but using this on all clean surfaces will have a smaller margin of error for the product to fail. This is a fantastic deodorizer, but just keep in mind some shoes have stink that can’t be topically treated.

Ease of Use

Since this is all-natural, it is much easier to use than more caustic sprays. Sprays intended for shoes can often be extremely strong and dangerous to get on the skin. That makes applying such products a complicated hassle. If you’re a busy athlete or a mom on-the-go, a quicker, easier solution is pretty necessary.

There are so many ways to use this that render fabulous results, you can’t go wrong. As mentioned in the previous section, your best bet for severe odor issues is using this on clean feet and clean shoes, but maintenance doesn’t require any previous cleansing. Since it is all-natural, you don’t have to be wary about using it on children's feet or shoes.

One thing to remember is that the ingredients in this that give your feet that fresh feeling still could be too harsh for certain delicate areas. Avoid touching below the belt or above the neck after using this, washing your hands if it gets on them to protect yourself. Otherwise, just a couple sprays on the feet or in the shoes do the trick with little mess or clean up!

Essential Oils

There are so many mixed feelings on essential oils that it can be hard to keep the consensus straight. While some swear by their benefits, others take a more skeptical approach. Though ingesting essential oils might be a bit too new-age for many, using them on the skin has proven benefits! The topical use of oils like those in Elite Sportz Shoe Deodorizer has been studied for a very long time with phenomenal findings.

The essential oils doing a lot of the heavy lifting here are all of them. Every one of them brings unique features to the table. Included in the Elite Sportz Shoe Deodorizer are peppermint, tea tree, neem, myrrh, bergamot, lavender, and menthol. This combination of oils targets everything from sores to pain.

Helping to repair skin while also soothing it, these create a full-spectrum product that can alleviate so many foot issues. Even if you aren’t struggling with odor, if your feet frequently feel tired and achy, this is a great refresher to keep in your bag. The odor isn’t too overwhelming or strong, so it won’t offend either. For a product that boasts only deodorizing benefits, the essential oils take it to the next level.


Much of the treatment for smelly feet is trying to target sweat. Drying powders and gel-to-powder ointments are incredibly popular treatments for smelly feet. Not all smelly feet require dryness to improve. Most don’t. Though moisture and heat tend to welcome bacteria, sweat itself doesn’t have an odor to it. It gets smelly from mixing with bacteria on our feet and shoes.

When we use drying products on our sweaty feet, we generally see more dry skin and calluses. Maybe these products work for odor, but they can cause other problems to spring up. So many of these essential oils intend to repair and replenish skin. Most of the ones being used in the Elite Sportz Shoe Deodorizer are frequently used to combat aging.

Moisturizing products are one of the best ways to fight to age, and the essential oils in this will refresh and moisturize your feet. This may burn if using it on broken skin, so you may want to wait for deep cracks to heal before using directly on them. With this in mind, shallow cracks, calluses, and painfully dry skin will only be helped by the Elite Sportz Shoe Deodorizer.


A lot of people read about a product containing botanicals and they may scoff. Botanical just means that it is derived or related to plants, and natural products like the Elite Sportz Shoe Deodorizer are often considered weak or ineffective due to not having medicinal ingredients created in a lab.

While special scientifically formulated serums can have great results, there is nothing wrong with relying on plant power for foot care. Some of the most powerful common foot odor remedies are all-natural! That is because natural remedies tend to work well in this area. Since there are so many antibacterial products on the market that can tend to be dry or greasy, products like the Elite Sportz Shoe Deodorizer are a refreshing change.

Instead of caustic alcohols or burning ointments, you’re getting a pleasant smelling, gentle spray. For those that prefer to keep their self-care products natural, the laundry list of beneficial oils and botanicals in this will be familiar and promising. You can try home remedies for foot odor before jumping into the Elite Sportz Shoe Deodorizer but chances are it will cost more than this bottle.


It may not be obvious by looking at it, but the Elite Sportz Shoe Deodorizer can be used as a foot massage oil thanks to being packed with wonderfully soothing ingredients. The menthol essential oil gives your feet a bit of tingle and cooling when using it. The other essential oils help to soothe blisters and treat pain.

While this may seem far fetched, the essential oils used in the Elite Sportz Shoe Deodorizer are known for reducing inflammation and pain. This isn’t simply an athlete’s foot product, it heals and repairs far beyond what it promises.

Bottom Line

If you like to keep it au naturale with your skincare products, you are going to go wild for the Elite Sportz Shoe Deodorizer. Intended for both feet and shoes, this works most effectively directly on the skin. When you use it on your feet, you are getting the full benefits from the ingredients, rather than only relying on the deodorizing properties that go to work when using it on shoes.

Though it doesn’t have strong enough antifungal components to treat fungus, it’s other benefits make up for it. A cooling tingle and refreshing scent accompany every spritz of the Elite Sportz Shoe Deodorizer. those tired of sore, smelly feet that make them scared to kick their shoes off have got to check this spray out.
