I believe that the stinky sneaker/trainers/pumps, whatever you want to call them is caused by bacterial waste products.
Could geneticists modify these bacteria so that there effluent gases are sweet smelling...perhaps French lavender or gingered orange or something?
Of course these new bacteria
would be more virulent than the regular strain and would eliminate the nasty smelling ones.
I don't usually support genetic modification, but this could be a winner for me.

||They are already working on such a thing but it involves the bacteria in your mouth. However it does not make it smell sweet it just eliminates the acid the bacteria produces.
