Alright, my foot sweat a lot thus my shoes all stinks. And it's becoming a problem since the shoes are in the dorm room and the room stinks. I tried Lysol the shoes, doesn't work. Fabreeze doesn't work. Fabreeze air doesn't work. I was wondering what kind of products(if you have the brand and the specific product, great) would you recommend for spraying the shoes or treating the shoes?

Do your feet smell? Not a joke but if the problem is your feet you need to take care of that or the shoes will just keep stinking up. I had the problem a lot when I was younger and epsom salts worked for me. Also, in the shoe you can use baking soda and also putting foot powder on to help with the sweat.
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
Change socks more often. Make sure to use good soap to wash your socks in so that they are totally clean. There are some insoles for shoes too, I believe Dr. Sholes (sp?) makes them.
Depending on the shoes, you should be able to wash them in good soap, dry them, stick the insoles in there and be all set as long as you make sure to change socks more often.
Yes doctor, I am sick. Sick of those who are spineless. Sick of those who feel self-entitled. Sick of those who are hypocrites. Yes doctor, an army is forming. Yes doctor, there will be a war. Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
There are a lot of good suggestions here, and I think a combination of several may do the trick. First, wash your feet thoroughly with soap and a wash cloth and be sure to dry your feet thoroughly and make certain there is no water between your toes. If that doesn't work then an Epsom's Salt bath is going to be necessary. Again, drying afterwards is the key. Repeat as necessary until your feet are back to "normal."
At the same time you need to do something about your shoes. Remove the insoles and consider replacing them. With the insoles removed I would first use Lysol to disinfect them, and I mean great huge clouds of Lysol so that there is noticeable buildup of fluid on the surfaces, both inside and out. You probably want to do that outside. Let the shoes dry thoroughly before you try wearing them again. If that doesn't work you may want to try some kind of shoe-specific soap like saddlesoap (if it's a leather shoe) or if it's a sports shoe something with lye. Be really careful about this - washing shoes that aren't meant to be washed is a good way to ruin the shoes.
The reality is that you may have to throw your current shoes away. Once they get to a certain point there may be no way to de-stink them. If that happens then be proactive about this problem in the first place with your new shoes. Use a foot powder like Gold Bond or Tinactin. Use Baking Soda in the shoes - not much, just a sprinkle or two every other day. Be sure to shake it around so the insides are coated.
