Essential Alternatives, Inc., the company that has been making shoe deodorizes and moisture wickers since 2016, has announced the launch of their new product line!  This product line will include larger sizes for Shoe Defenders that absorb even more moisture and odor.

About Shoe Defenders™

Shoe Defenders are items that can be placed in your shoes after use.  They absorb moisture and sweat and release antifungal and antimicrobial essential oils to leave your shoes smelling great! Shoe Defenders are handmade in the US using sustainable US materials.  They currently manufacture two types of Shoe Defenders; Ball Shape and Sole Shape for all shoe shapes and needs.


New Product Line

In 2019 Shoe Defenders will be releasing a new product line.  This line will include an XL size of Shoe Defenders for larger areas and shoes.  These XL defenders will use the same patented technology but come in a larger size.  These can be used in larger shoes including ski boots, hockey skates and snow shoes. They can also be used to help with moisture and odor in larger spaces such as gym bags and hats.  They will also include a new ingredient to improve their moisture wicking ability.


Essential Alternatives is greatly looking forward to rolling out this new line of Shoe Defenders to complement their current line of Shoe Defenders™ and know they will have a great impact on the winter sports community.
