View Website

Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Times Square is hosting the 44th annual Odor-Eaters National Rotten Sneaker Contest on Tuesday, March 26th, at 10am. Seven youthful contestants will be bringing the sweat smell of success from across America. The reward—beyond glory—is a generous New York prize package. Sneakers are judged based on odor and interior and exterior shoe condition. Contestants also have to share the story of how their sneakers ended up so dirty and smelly. The winner receives $2,500, an additional two nights’ stay in New York, tickets to see a Broadway show, the Golden Sneaker award, a year’s supply of much-needed Odor-Eaters products, and a spot in the Hall of Fumes.
