Would a microwave kill the mites on shoes.

If the bugs have fluid in their bodies it should boil the fluid and kill them. It seems like it would be a good thing to put shoes that don't have metal in them in the oven and turn it on for about 10 minutes.

not 10 minutes. you have to start low, like 30 seconds. then take the shoes out and examine them. put them back in there for anothe 30 seconds, stop, take them out and examine them. microwaving the mites works, but you can damage stuff in there.
you can run scalding hot water over and inside sneakers, and then place them outside to dry in the sun.
