- Recommend a shoe drying device please
I had a brilliant one from Clas Ohlson but it died after 4 years service and now they’re discontinued. I’ve found the best ones are the forced air type. Basically a very low powered hair dryer with two or more flexible hoses that you shove into the shoe. You can get ones that are just a heating element that goes into the shoe and ones that use a desiccant like silica gel but they’re not as good.Posted 1 month agodangeourbrainSubscriber
I’ve one very much like this without the long dongle bits on the end. Works very well.

I’ve also one of these in the office, it’s not very effective but it does at least warm my wet shoes through so they’re less minging to put on at home time

Had one of these for about 18 months. Will dry a pair of shoes that have been hoses clean in about 3 hours.

Forced air boot dryer, shoe dryer, and glove dryer works simultaneously on up to four garments https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01LZEF17K/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_8H84Db206PEY5
Way better than the radiator as doesn’t damage the shoes and stuff doesn’t smell either. Overpriced for a crap hairdryer but wouldn’t be without it nowPosted 1 month ago
Reduce, reuse, recycle. Stuff with newspaper, put on radiator
For years this has been my approach TJ, combined with a waterproof sock the next day. It worked best when we received a free newspaper.Posted 1 month ago
This is for home use. And yes, I have multiple pairs of riding shoes, but I’d rather limit the destruction to one pair this winter.
Cheers for the links.squirrelkingMember
I’m also with TJ, with a decent heat my wringing wet shoes are dry in an 8 hour shift. The same heat without paper just resulted in warm but still soaking shoes.
A reusable adsorbent is what you want, I imagine that’s what the silica packs above do. I get free paper from the mess room so not too fussed.Posted 1 month agomartinkielyMember
I use an electric wall mounted one that will accept two pairs of shoes – basically loops (filled with oil presumably?) that get very gently warm and will dry a wet pair of shoes overnight from my experience – lives in the garage, so when I get back in from a ride, I just stick the shoes straight on it – similar to this one: <span style=”font-family: ‘Helvetica Neue’,’Helvetica’,Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif; font-size: small;”>https://www.amazon.co.uk/HOMCOM-Wall-mounted-Electric-Deodorizer-Sterilizer/dp/B01M2Z9LJS/ref=sr_1_52_sspa?keywords=BOOT+DRYER&qid=1575290457&sr=8-52-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUExS1dFQkw5NUxOQThUJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwMjc5NzI5MTYyNlMwR082NDRYMSZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwMjE4NjUzMVRISk1IMlYzNlJERCZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX2F0Zl9uZXh0JmFjdGlvbj1jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==</span>Posted 1 month agoOnzadogMember
Need to change a couple of times, once after an hour, then new stuff in. I’ve been using the same 4 crumpled up bits of newspaper on my running shoes I keep at work for lunchtime runs for about 2 years now!. 🙂
Glad it’s not just me. Wife thinks I’m mad for drying out and reusing newspaper to dry shoes.Posted 1 month ago
After a great deal of consideration and imagining the house burning down I decided to not forget overshoes (who ever suffered from feet too warm to ride?) ever again and to deploy waterproof socks / radiator & newspaper technique as required.
