So... I started wearing them a bit differently: by wearing two socks on each foot, before putting a zipper storage bag on each foot and then wearing my worst-smelling Vans over them.
Believe me, it worked, both pairs absolutely reek. I filmed a short video showing them off again but from another angle. Enjoy!
I'm still open to suggestions for videos for a few weeks; you can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org, leave a comment on this post or message restwalker on YouTube
