Strong Rubber Odor on Shoe Soles

I am wondering how to remove a very strong chemical rubber smell from the rubber soles of shoes made in China. I have tried wrapping in a Bounce sheet and putting in sun.

Have you tried cat litter. My sons shoes stink really bad because he refuses most times to wear socks. I got a pair of socks from the dollar store, put in cat litter that we bought there, too. Tied up the socks and I make him put them in the shoes every night. No smell in the house or in the shoes the next morning.
