There are a few preperations on the market, available from pharmacies, and supermarkets, but a hint with all of them is to spray the shoe then wear the shoe immediatel as the heat of your foot assists the solutions in working better.
Place a few DROPS of a 5% formalin solution on a cotton wool ball with (from the pharmacy) put the ball inside the shoe and place the shoe in a plastic bag and tie the bag up for a few days sometimes also helps
