Drying Wet Shoes

The tendency is to put wet shoes on or near a heat source to dry them. Unfortunately, this can shrink your shoes. You want to dry shoes at room temperature. Fill the shoes with newspaper or cloth to absorb the moisture in the inside. Change the newspaper or cloth and replace with dry every few hours until dry. It will also help the shoes keep their shape.

I put a small personal size fan blowing into them with the tongues pulled up and they dry quickly - summer or winter.
