My run shoes seem to take forever to dry....and there is nothing worse than putting damp shoes on before a run.

How do you dry your shoes?

What's the best way to dry em?

Newspaper in them and leave in a warm place. Sorted.

Not on a radiator then?? is that bad for the shoe?

I put mine under the radiator rather than on it - they still dry in time.

What about if you run to work and your shoes get soaked, i hate running home in wet shoes.....how to dry them at work??

Newspaper. Change after 15 minutes, then do the same every few hours. Works a treat. Also take the insoles out to dry separately.

Newspaper and leave them near a radiator. If you can be bothered to change the paper it speeds it along.

You can buy fancy feet shaped dryer things but I don't really see the need.

Have 2 pairs on the go and alternate them so they have longer to dry.

Don't worry about it - if it's wet out then you'll only have a slight discomfort for a minute or two longer than you would anyway!

Dehumidifier probably the best way, though a bit pricey just to dry shoes

No heat from the dehumidifier so no damage and dries way quicker than newspapers etc, probably in a couple of hours when the dry air is aimed at hanging trainers

Really? You can think of nothing worse? MTFU

Rotate between two pairs of shoes.  Gives the wet pair extra time to dry, and as long as you don't give up running it will still offer value for money.
