During our epic rainstorm here in northern California a couple of weeks ago, I was a little bummed because my usual shoe drying solutions are no longer available. My ski boot & glove dryer I used to keep in the office caught on fire, and the other office standby — a hot CRT computer monitor — had been sent to the recycler months ago.
Fortuitously, I got a call from Lindsey in San Francisco that day. She told me about the Stuffitts Shoe Savers. They were created by a triathlete who wanted a way to dry his shoes and found that cedar shavings work really well. I hate putting soggy shoes on at the end of the day and the next morning, so I’m eager to try them out.
The Shoe Savers arrived in the mail today. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to put them to the test anytime real soon. Here’s the 5 day forecast for Palo Alto, California.
As soon as we get some rain I’ll let you know how they work out. They’re pretty cute, though — blue feet shaped inserts stuffed with cedar shavings that make my shoes smell really nice like Christmas trees!
