    imho it is not necessary to clean shoes (after every training? can't believe this!!), maybe cleaning the sole with some water from time to time is a good thing (i never do that. sometimes use a wet towel on court to clean the shoes in between rallies, when the court is very dusty...).

    for regular players (which in my opinion starts at like 5h a week or so), shoes do not last longer than a year.
    the cushioning diminishes, stability decreases, ...

    do yourself a favor and change your shoes regularly. i think good shoes is even more important than rackets, cetainly morer important than clothing... (i get a new pair like twice a year or so, but i'm quite heavy fwiw...).

    Currently for my pair, I just stuff in a pack or two of those little gel silica packs to absorb the extra moisture after each session. Given that I'm in Malaysia and that my shoe closet is *somewhat* aired, I'm not worried about it being overdried. My concern would be more on not having it gradually turn from a pair of badminton shoes to a home-made, biological stink bomb (which my running shoes now unfortunately suffers).

    I'm looking around where I could purchase some bamboo charcoal to place inside my shoes, heard that the bamboo charcoal could work as both a humidity regulator and odour eliminator. Would be great if anyone could give some feedback on this, if it helps I'd definitely want to get it for my running shoes too

    i use dryer sheets in my shoes and shoe compartment to fight odors. also spray lysol once in a while.

    i duct tape my insoles to make them last longer. had a tear on the right small toe and got it repaired by a shoe shop for us$20.

    i was into remote control cars. To increase the grip on our tires we used simple green cleaner. I used this on my old SHB 200's and it brought the rubber back to life.

    I have to duct tape my left hand shoe to avoid getting a hole. Other than that I just tend to Air them after each session.

    Really need new insoles though, the Yonex stock ones have gone paper thin after 4 months or so.

    The rubber would have deteriorated and hardened due to ozonation if over 4-5 yrs, so nothing you can do to revive it.

    Off season one pair can last about 4 months, till then at least the dampening is almost gone and the shoe needs to be replaced. Some friends train hard everyday and get supplied with 6-10 pairs every year.
    If you jump a lot, are heavy etc. shoes will show wear sooner.

    I use custom made glass fiber/carbon compound insoles. If the shoe smell, I get them fresh again in the washing machine and when the dampening is gone, I use them as sneakers for casual wear.

    You can get it all DAISO outlets. They have all sorts of styles including for shoes. RM5/pair. it works for me.
