Leave them outside to dry for as long as possible, with the insoles removed if they're not glued on. If they're not drying out after being worn that'll be a big cause of the stench, though if they're too far gone or you wear them every day you won't get rid of it.
Try spraying them with an anti-bac foot spray, I find they work better than shoe deodorants.
A bit of talc in your socks will stop your feet sweating as much, prevention rather than cure and all that

put them in a ziplock bag and put them in the freezer
let them dry out between wears (rotate if needs be).
Don't bother sticking them in the freezer. Some people recommend that as it kills the bacteria. But they will be back as soon as they get back to temperature for any length of time.
Or get new ones.
