Tell me now just how the hell do you get that much bleach out of your shoes after you soak them with bleach?

(a dilute solution of sodium hypochlorite, also called "liquid bleach") This acid will be held on your feet non-stop anytime you wear those shoes.

I take the insoles out of my boots at least once a year for machine washing and bleaching and after a couple of decades I'm still alive to talk about it. The key is to run them for a second and maybe third rinse then air dry. It freshens them right up.

You're on the wrong end of the pH scale. Bleach is a base (alkaline), not an acid. Bases are sodium, acids are hydrogen. Third-grade chemistry.

I dont want to start with the bleach unless I can be certain that it can be done.
I saw some youtube videos of people bleaching some black shoes that turned out bright orange.
Try soaking them overnight in a pan of bleach. Please let us know how this turns out.
