The Electric Shoe Dryer will air out your footwear

Dr Dry Electric Shoe Dryer

Have you ever been out in the summer sun having a grand time and gotten your shoes wet? If so, then you know that it is a dreadfully disgusting experience, as the fun part of the day ending leaves you with pruny feet stuck in soggy shoes that you can’t change out until you get home. Not only that, but you also have to wait for them to dry before putting them on again as it normally takes at least a day to not be squishy.

If you don’t want to waste a moment of summer fun, then you’re going to need a way to dry your shoes quickly. The Dr. Dry Electric Shoe Dryer seems like it might have the right idea to solve that problem. These are shoe inserts that once plugged in will blast some warm air into your probably smelly shoes, drying them in the span of an hour or two. The trick is that they heat up and toast your foot coverings from the inside, meaning moisture can’t hang out and start to mold.

Not only will this take out the wetness and prevent odor, it will work with just about any type of material, meaning ski boots and gloves will get the same treatment. You’ll need to get the right size, as there are children’s (3-7), women’s (5-9), and men’s (7-13), and you don’t want to jam the wrong one into a shoe. Depending on what size you need, the price will vary in a range of $16.99-28.99. While these will be great for post-pond or creek adventures, they would be very welcome as shoe warmers in the winter too.
