Odor Control for Footwear


Antimicrobial FootwearWhile the clothes we wear on a day-to-day basis rotate, the shoes have a higher frequency of use. Whether it’s your favorite workout sneakers, or your everyday work shoes or boots, the mileage that we put on our footwear can cause issues. One of the issues that is most noticeable is odor.

After months, sometimes even just weeks of repeated use, odor-causing bacteria can make itself at home in your footwear. This leads to unpleasant odors permeating from your shoes. That’s where Sciessent can help.

Our Agion® Antimicrobial is the leading odor control product in the footwear industry. Agion® Antimicrobial works to combat odor-causing bacteria to keep your footwear fresh for longer.

In addition to Agion® Antimicrobial, we offer our Sciessent Lava XL and Agion Active® XL products as anti-odor treatments for footwear, as well as a wide array of textile and apparel products.

Products For Footwear


Agion Antimicrobial

Antimicrobial technology is used in various products to help keep them clean. It offers built-in product protection by continuously resisting the growth of microbes.

Anti Microbial

Agion Active XL

Combined anti-odor and antimicrobial technologies provide the ultimate protection against odors for treated products. Ion exchanges in the Active XL technology protect products from bacteria-related odors and degrade odor molecules as they are captured.


Lava XL

Anti-odor technology harnesses the power of zeolites – a mineral based substance born from volcanic ash – to capture odor molecules and keep you smelling fresh.


Curb DWR

A durable water repellent (DWR) is a functional finish for fabrics that adds liquid-shedding properties. Garments treated with a DWR bead water droplets, causing them to roll off the surface of the fabric.
