Why You Need SteriShoe®

The combination of sweat and heat inside your shoes makes a perfect breeding ground for the bacteria and fungi that cause toenail fungus, athlete’s foot, and foul odor. And when foot ailments exist, shoes can be a common source of re-infection.

Therefore, to fully minimize the likelihood of a new infection or re-infection, germs must be eradicated at the risk source! Make the doctor recommended SteriShoe® sanitizer part of your trusted total foot care protocol today.

How SteriShoe® Works

The innovative SteriShoe® shoe sanitizer kills the germs that reside inside shoes with a special germicidal ultraviolet light (UVC). With the first treatment, SteriShoe® destroys up to 99.9% of the microorganisms in shoes, including the bacteria and fungi that cause toenail fungus (onychomycosis), athlete’s foot (tinea pedis) and offensive foot odor. SteriShoe® is also an excellent choice for those with diabetes or generally concerned about their feet’s hygiene.
