Wyatt was concerned about the smell of his climbing shoes and gave Nature’s Steps’ Cinnamon Insoles a try. It totally worked! He recommends to measure your shoes before deciding on an insole size.
“I bought Nature’s Steps’ Natural Cinnamon Insoles for my climbing shoes. They are mostly gym shoes now, and I was previously using an enzyme spray to deodorize them to keep them from stinking up my work bag.
I love climbing, especially bouldering, so I need a reliable, comfortable shoe. The insoles fit in the shoes decently. I matched the size of the shoes when I bought the insoles, but they bunch up a little in the heel and sometimes the toe. I do think this is more due to a tight width constraint, but even with the occasional bunching, I do not notice after a couple minutes.
Given my experience, I recommend to everyone who is getting insoles for their climbing shoes to actually measure the shoes and match their size to the correct insole size. There is a size chart on Nature’s Steps’ website.
As far as effectiveness, the insoles work great. My shoes smell good even after very hard workouts and my feet don’t feel sweaty like they used to. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to make their shoes feel fresh and clean.“
