SmellWell began with Hannah’s stinky football boots…
“Football was my greatest interest growing up. Most of the people who have been near a pair of soccer shoes know how badly they can smell. My dad often complained about the stench from them. One day he had enough. He went to the sports shop to buy something to get rid of the smell. Together we tested everything from balls to sprays without the desired results.”
Vincent, founder of SmellWell, decided to find his own solution. The result was SmellWell. The goal was to develop an effective solution that would also be pleasant and easy to use, for both adults and children.
In this blog story you will learn more about SmellWell’s history and how the product can counteract both bad odor in your football boots and Athlete’s Foot.
Unlike other similar products on the market that only work to mask the bad smell, SmellWell goes to the source of the problem by absorbing both moisture and odor. In addition, it leaves a fresh scent.
SmellWell is a combination of proven methods and new technology. The content consists of natural salts and absorbents made of renewable raw materials that effectively absorb moisture and odor without the use of anti-bacterial agents. The content is completely harmless. It has been tested in accordance with the REACH Consumer Safety and Environmental Directive. The contents are enclosed within small colorful fabric bags which not only makes SmellWell effective but also a nice accessory to have.
SmellWell is the perfect solution for football boots. SmellWell makes sure your boots remain fresh throughout the season. Who can disagree that the shoes should not stand indoors at the end of the season? With SmellWell we guarantee that they can stand in the hall without the rest of the family complaining about the odor.
During the football season there are many who practice both indoors and outdoors, which means that the football boots are exposed to excessive moisture. A problem that many football players are suffering from is athlete’s foot. This also applies to children. The bacteria that causes Athlete’s Foot tends to form when using damp and warm boots for a long time. By using SmellWell continuously, this can be easily prevented. The inserts absorb moisture and help keep the boots dry and fresh throughout the entire season. In this way, the bacteria does not gain a foothold and the problem is counteracted.
So now you can easily keep both your children’s and your own boots fresh throughout the football season. Just add SmellWell to your or your children’s damp and warm boots after training or match and let them stay in until for the next session. The football boots will be fresh and dry.

In addition to football boots or other kinds of shoes, SmellWell is also great to use in:
Boxing gloves – SmellWell absorbs moisture in the gloves, making them feel dry and fresh to the next bout.
Ski and snowboarding boots – Get into the habit of putting SmellWell in your ski or snowboarding boots at the end of the day and they will be fresh the day after.
Gym bag – Even gym bags can have a less pleasant smell after a while. Take out your gym wear and put SmellWell in overnight and it will smell like new, or keep them in all week round.
The car – Everyone wants their car to always smell new and fresh, but unfortunately the reality is usually somewhat different. The modern solution is SmellWell. Add some SmellWell XL to your car and that new and fresh feeling will come back in no time.
How long does SmellWell last? SmellWell Original and XL last up to 6 months or more from when you open the packaging. The lifespan depends on how hard the inserts have to work. The lifespan is generally shorter if the environment in which the inserts are used is high in moisture content.
Can I wash my SmellWell? No – SmellWell acts as a natural filter that effectively removes the bad smell. If you find that your SmellWell feels a bit stale after long periods of use in shoes that are in bad shape, lay them on the floor so that air can circulate. In this way they will be ventilated and become significantly fresher again. If they have been lying in very damp shoes, crystals are formed in the bag which allows them to solidify. You can easily break the crystals by squeezing the bag so that they regain their natural texture again as well as the ability to absorb moisture.
Is the color used to print the pattern approved? Yes, the color used has been checked in accordance with REACH Appendix 1-3 to ensure that it contains no prohibited substances.
SmellWell keeps your football boots fresh and your feet free from Athlete’s Foot!
