Default Stinky boots!

I've got some northwave boots with removable liners, and they're starting to reek pretty fiercely. What do you do to clean them?

Haha yeah I only vaguely remember the character. The nick is also a contraction of my first and last names.

Guess I'll try tossing the liners in the wash. I also googled up something about leaving socks full of baking soda in them

(Sorry for necro, I'd rather necro an old post than make a new one)

Any other ideas besides washing liners?

i've never done it, so i can't say it will work, but baking soda is known to absorb odors. so it may work temporarily, but the smell will probably come back.

feet stink when they sweat, so maybe try a different brand/kind of sock?

Id say a bucket full of warm to sort of hot water and maybe some laundry detergent. Let them soak for a bit then agitate them, rinse with the hose or sink and then put near (not too close)a heater or hairdry them where they can dry rapidly and not build up that moldy smell from drying slowly. Thats what I would do.
